Speedcars are an AA graded national division affiliated with Speedway Australia, with competition available in every Australian State and Territory. Affiliated Speedcar Associations are based in Western Australia, South Australia (which includes NT), Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales (includes ACT) and Queensland. Our affiliated clubs welcome new members in a range of capacities, including competitors, car owners, pit crew, social members, and officials/volunteers. Refer our State Associations page for further contact information for your local club.
VOLUNTEERING & OFFICIATING:
Volunteering to be a Speedway Official is also an inexpensive and fun way to experience the sport first hand, while learning what goes on at a Speedway track, rules, regulations and what competing is all about. Generally beginning as a volunteer, officials can progress through to officiating National Speedway Events. You can volunteer your time directly with your local Speedcar association and subsequently apply for a Speedway Australia Officials Licence with role relevant training.
Speedway Australia's interactive and free 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.
