A Summer of Speedcars!

Share this post

Last season was a big one for the Speedcars and this summer is set to be even hotter with some massive events to be held starting in October and running right through until April!

Amazingly, every single event across the season has something special attached to it, all but one of those season events at the Perth Motorplex, and this should mean great car counts from beginning to end!

We kick off the 2023/24 season with the now traditional Powerpalooza event at the Perth Motorplex, taking place on the 21st of October.

This is followed a fortnight later by the fourth annual Neville Lance Twin 14’s event, where drivers will get the chance to contest not one but two feature races in recognition of one of our club legends.

A week later more club legends will be honoured as teams will head down the highway to the exciting Albany Speedway Club for the Legends of WASDA event. This show, formerly known as the Laurie Matthews Memorial, will honour more of those who made WASDA what it is, and be the only opportunity this season for drivers to get laps at a different venue.

Early December will see drivers head back to the Motorplex where they will contest the John Day Speedcar Classic for the seventh time and if the last few seasons are anything to go by, we should have a star-studded field ready to take each other on in honour of ‘The General’.

This event will be followed by the return of the Esslinger Engineering Triple Crown, the three round series within the season kicking off at the Motorplex on Boxing Night once again.

Traditionally one of the biggest events on the WA calendar has been the New Year Speedcar Derby and again this happens on the 2nd of January, doubling as Round Two of the Esslinger Engineering Speedcar Triple Crown, while the final event of that mini series will be held on the 13th of January.

February will see drivers get the chance for a decent break, with just an event on the 10th for the month, but we certainly make up for it in March, firstly with the Prelude to the Title on Wednesday the 6th of March, being run as a revival of the Magic Man race with the permission of the Figliomeni family.

This event is expected to attract plenty of local and visiting interest as it will serve as the perfect run in for the Australian Speedcar Championship, to be held across two nights on the 8th and 9th of March.

As if this wasn’t enough, the very next weekend will see the running of the prestigious WA Speedcar Championship, the 76th annual running of the event.

After a few weeks break, the season will then officially come to its conclusion with the Grand Finale to be held on the 6th of April.

No matter which way you turn, this season is stacked full of huge shows for the WASDA club, and we absolutely cannot wait to get it underway in October!
