With nights starting to cool off in the southern part of the country, ANZAC weekend is one of the last occasions in the 2020/21 season where a two-day meeting is still viable for competitors and fans. One such track is Kalgoorlie International Speedway, with a Super Sedan Stampede and the Murray Herbert Junior Sedan Memorial on this Saturday and Sunday, April 24/25.

Always a well-presented and well-lit venue, recent changes to the shape and gradient of the racing surface have been well-received.
And President Ben Sowden was on hand for tonight’s Speedway Australia track inspection, and ended up being the first office holder in the country to receive one of our new Track Inspection Certificates.

These are a new initiative and the aim of the certificates is twofold – firstly to make it transparent to those at the venue that the facility has passed its most recent inspection, and secondly to enable venues to supply a copy of this confirmation to other relevant parties as they wish. On occasion there’s a need for a local council or other government agency to receive this information, and it can also be handy when applying for grants and liaising with divisions for title hosting. By having this information readily at hand, it will make these processes easier for venues to co-ordinate. 

With Kalgoorlie Speedway celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2022, there are plenty of exciting initiatives on the horizon. We wish Ben and the team all the best for their remaining meetings in 2020/21 and look forward to what the future brings at the venue.
