Laurie Matthews was tragically killed in a road accident while on his way to the National Title in 1988. In saluting his memory a special 30 lap feature race named the "Laurie Matthews 30 Lap Memorial Speedcar Classic" was run the following season.

The event became an annual one in Laurie's honour, and the race is one of the hardest fought of all Speedcar races of the season. The 30 laps represents the 30 years Laurie graced the world famous Claremont Speedway track; his tragic death in that freak accident left a gap in local ranks that will never be filled.
