Speedway Australia are proud to launch our comprehensive National Training Program for Official’s accreditation. For the past year we have been developing an online platform for Officials training in conjunction with Divisional bodies such as Speedway Sedans Australia and the Sprintcar Control Council, to set a national standard of knowledge and skill sets required for Stewards and Scrutineers across every class of racing.

In the 96 years of Speedway in Australia, never has a singular comprehensive programme been offered across all classes, and all states. This new, interactive online programme covers all aspects of Speedway Officiating, from the fundamentals of being an official, to health and safety, Speedway racing rules and on-track scenarios. Further learning is provided with the help of Sports Australia, covering topics such as ethical decision making, communication skills and managing conflict.

The program allows for self-paced learning on your PC, mobile or tablet from the comfort of your own home – avoiding the need for time consuming and costly travel from remote areas, saving time and money for Divisional bodies, and the volunteers themselves.
Best of all – it’s free!


Click here to check out our introductory video for the new programme and keep an eye out next week as we launch another series of videos to explain how to use the new platform.

Two-Time Australian Sprintcar Champion Dave Murcott makes a welcome return to World Series Sprintcar competition as a contracted driver in 2019/20, piloting the famed Victory Lane Racegear V88 Sprintcar Team

Statistically one of the most consistent drivers to ever contest World Series Sprintcar competition, Murcott has never won an outright series crown, with a best result of 2nd Overall in both 2010/11 and 2014/15. However, with nine World Series Main Event wins to his name, the current Victorian Sprintcar Champion looks set to break his duck in season 2019/20, and challenge for that elusive first WSS Title.

Dave Murcott marks the eighth contracted driver to be confirmed for World Series Sprintcars in 2019/20.

The most successful driver in World Series Sprintcars history makes his long-awaited return as a contracted driver in 2019/20 – Brooke Tatnell is back, piloting the V55 for Mount Gambier based Scott Motorsport.

Regarded by many as one of the greats of Australian Sprintcar racing, nine-time World Series champion Tatnell contested the inaugural series way back in 1987, finally securing his first crown in 1994/95. Brooke Tatnell is also part of the only father and son combination to ever win a World Series Championship, with his father George taking back to back titles in the late 1980’s.

Having shown promising speed in the six events contested last season, the combination of Brooke Tatnell, Ashley Scott and the Scott Motorsport team will be looking to hit the ground running in 2019/20, as Brooke chases a 10th World Series Sprintcar title to cap off his illustrious career.

Brooke Tatnell is the ninth contracted driver confirmed for World Series Sprintcars in 2019/20.
