COLLABORATION THE KEY IN SOUTH-EAST NSW
Located just 20 minutes south of the popular Batemans Bay in South East NSW, Moruya Speedway is a picturesque and unique track with a rich history, and an even brighter future.
Approaching 60 years of continuous operation, the venue looks to bounce back from a challenging 2019/20, which saw bushfire, flood and finally COVID put a dampener on their season calendar. Most recently, the club engaged Speedway Australia to assist them in sourcing State Government funding – the result being a $10,000 cash injection from the NSW Government to help them weather the storm.
Led by Surfair Motorsports Club President Kiel Rosevear and Secretary Kay Nash, the hard-working committee now turns their attention for forging a stronger relationship with the surrounding Bega and Canberra tracks, with a collaborative approach discussed for future events within the region.
Primarily a Sedan venue, Moruya has played host to marquee events in recent times, the most notable of which was the 2018/19 NSW Production Sedan Title. The 460m granite/clay track features an unusual oblong shape, proving a welcome challenge for many visiting drivers.
Recent discussion with surrounding venues, facilitated at a Speedway Australia Regional Forum, has seen Moruya together with Bega’s Sapphire Speedway and Canberra’s ACT Speedway continue talks, with discussion around avoiding date clashes, assisting with each other’s event planning, and consolidating divisions and season point scores between the three clubs at the forefront of ideas to raise the standards for speedway competitors and fans in the states South East.

We wish Moruya Speedway all the best ahead of their much anticipated 2020/21 season!
