 Each race event is unique.  Monster Trucks, stunts and Fireworks are all part of the entertainment adding to the speedway affair.  And whether it is Sprintcars, Super Sedans – a club event or international meeting, the attraction remains.

The floodlit track sets the scene for action and plenty of it.  Fans scramble to stake claim on their usual vantage points.  Fine-tuned machines spill out onto the track for the warm-up laps.  The crowd and drivers alike are prepared for the battle.  The atmosphere is heavy with anticipation.  The roar of 850hp V8s let loose….

A special bond exists among speedway fans.  They know the thrill of a hard-fought battle, to close their eyes and feel the earth shake, to hear the engines groan and to smell the methanol.  To wait, and watch, to savour the unpredictability of each moment.  This is the addiction.  Speedway!  The ultimate spectacle, it’s about excitement and high speed action.

Thousands of fans yelling unrestrained…

Speedway is more than entertainment

Speedway is a passion!
