ALEXANDRA JOINS SPEEDWAY AUSTRALIA
A unique track with a long history and a bright future is the latest venue to join the ever-growing family of Speedway Australia affiliated tracks. The Alexandra and District Speedway Club is just about to celebrate 50 years of racing on their big open raceway, which includes the option of a dogleg in turn two that skirts around a famous tree.
Located 1 hour 20 minutes northeast of Melbourne’s outer suburbs, the club have recently upgraded their safety fence to Speedway Australia three star specifications and made a host of other improvements. And Club President Tim Miller thought the time was now right to make the next step in their evolution by committing to Speedway Australia and receiving the benefits that follow.
The club is famous throughout Victoria for running their two biggest events of the year in winter, the 100-lapper in June and the 3-hour Enduro in August. Unfortunately this means they’ve been more affected than most by the COVID-19 pandemic, with these signature Sedan events unable to be held in 2020. They’ll be back bigger than ever in 2021 though, along with a full programme of events that is due to kick off on November 7, restrictions permitting. State titles feature at four of the eight meetings, along with Wingless Sprints on March 20.
We extend a warm welcome to all of Alexandra Speedway's club members and supporters, and look forward to watching with interest as the venue continues to power into the future.
