The 2019/20 season was scheduled to be a big one and although it was cut short, it certainly delivered.
Now though, the focus shifts to the 2020/21 season and with some catching up to do from last year, plus some changes to the standard schedule of recent years, WASDA is tonight proud to reveal a revamped and exciting new calendar!
As is the case all around the world at this stage, all dates released below are tentative and subject to change, but as it stands right now, we are scheduled to have sixteen nights of action at seven tracks across our great state!
As has been the case for a number of season now, it all begins at the Perth Motorplex with the now annual Powerpalooza opener to be held on the 24th of October.
From there we immediately kick into high gear with the first of two WA Titles held at the Motorplex the week later. This title will officially be the rerun of the 2019/20 (72nd annual) WA Title, with the whole event starting again after last seasons rainout and subsequent inability to be rescheduled due to the enforced break in racing action.
Next on the list the 2019/20 season flavour continues as we head down to the Make Smoking History Collie Speedway for the 2019/20 (32nd Annual) version of the Laurie Matthews Memorial that was aborted before it began last season.
The 5th of December will see yet another huge event, with Speedcars returning to the Perth Motorplex for the fourth annual John Day Speedcar Classic. This year running under a different management group, this show will again be one not to miss as we honour one of the all time legends of our sport.
A week later we head down to the Narrogin speedway for the first time since October, 2016, in what will be the first round of the rejuvenated Country Series.
Indeed, the country series was a stalwart on the WASDA Calendar for many years, with many of our established stars cutting their teeth at tracks all around Western Australia and the WASDA team are incredibly excited to revitalise this important part of our history.
This event will be followed by a weeks break prior to returning to the Motorplex for the Boxing Day Bonanza event on the 26th of December.
The 49th annual New Year Speedcar Derby is next, back at the Motorplex on the 9th of January, followed by a huge double header on the 23rd and 24th of January at Kalgoorlie International Speedway and Esperance Speedway respectively, forming rounds two and three of the country series. Speedcars haven’t raced at Kalgoorlie since November, 2015 or at Esperance for well over a decade, so it is certainly going to be a challenge for all competitors to get a handle on these great tracks.
Next up will be another return to the Motorplex for the first weekend in February, before we have a break in action here in Western Australia to allow teams to travel East and compete in the National Title.
Action resumes here in the West at the Make Smoking History Collie Speedway once again, this time on the 6th of March for the 2020/21 Laurie Matthews Memorial, the 33rd running of the event.
This will be followed a week later by the 2020/21 73rd WA Speedcar Title at the Perth Motorplex.
The Motorplex season will then conclude on the 27th of March in the annual Gold Cup event, but for WASDA the season won’t be quite over, with two more rounds of the country series pencilled in: the 10th of April at Moora Speedway and the 17th of April at Geraldton City Speedway.
WASDA hasn’t been to Moora since early 2016, or Geraldton since around 2006 (this statistic to be confirmed!) so it is great that we get the chance to return to these venues, giving us a huge five round country series.
As stated before, all dates released are tentative and subject to change, but as it stands right now, we are in for a cracker of a season, especially considering the caliber of drivers, including a number of rookies, that are getting ready to saddle up for a huge 2020/21 season!!
