ELLENBROOK ELEVATING TO NEW LEVELS
The Ellenbrook Speedway is located in Ellenbrook, Western Australia, approximately 30km north-east of Perth.
This year they have taken on a few big projects, the biggest being the total resurfacing of the track. A huge effort has been put in for this, with a special thanks due to Michael Comley, James Lawton, Evan Wakefield and Peter Walker for the many hours they have put into it. A huge thanks also to their sponsors that helped to make it happen, All West Plant Hire, Asphalt Recyclers Australia, TLC Contracting and Brajkovich Demolition.
Other areas of track and venue improvements are :
- Extension of the pit area to cater for more cars. Thanks to Warren Flavel at DJ's Custom Fencing. Michael and his team chipped in to help with this also plus help from Jason Oldfield.
- Installation of a new viewing platform in the pit area that gives a great vantage point for the racing. Thanks to Jamie Oldfield and Warren Flavel for organising that.
- Repaint of the track wall thanks to sponsorship from Paul Stubber and the venue's bins have been also given a facelift thanks to Michael Holmes.
The total cost of the works was a reasonable figure with significant discounts and assistance completed thanks to great sponsors and hard work by the club members and volunteers.
The venue is looking great for the season which starts on the 16th August with the Tom Green Memorial Junior Gold Cup, the first of four blue ribbon events.
The Racing Drivers Association of WA. Inc was founded in 1964 and is a non-profit organization. In 1976 the club moved from Wattle Grove to Ellenbrook and has been providing a fun exciting sport with a difference for all individuals and family's every winter since that time. Ellenbrook Speedway runs approximately 12 race meetings from April to October every year. Most of their race meetings are run during daylight hours. With the completion of infield lighting towers in 2009 they are now capable of holding a couple of twilight meetings per year.
We wish Club President Anthony Heelan and everyone at Ellenbrook Speedway all the best for the year ahead. More info at: https://www.facebook.com/ellenbrookspeedway
