Re: Two way runs for 2019

Introducing something new and a significant change it was always going to be a suck it and see. Some people responded better than others. Some people do not like or easily accept change. There were several changes to the way impound ran over the week. The main difficulty was a lack of volunteer insp...

Dates for 2020

I'm very much aware that the extremely hot weather we experienced this year from the Thursday to the Sunday wore a lot of people out before the week had even started.

Re: Pre-Race Lake Inspection Report

The two most frequent questions I repeatedly get asked are; Q1. Will the rains from Queensland flood the lake? A1. No, they are not even in the same catchment areas and Lake Eyre is lower than Lake Gairdner, so it catches all the water. Q2. What's the roads like? A2. The main dirt road from Iron Kno...

As the rule is currently written it says. 1.G AUSTRALIAN RECORD RUNS: Two-way average records are established by a two-run average over the same relative or physical mile, depending upon course conditions.

Pre-Race Lake Inspection Report

Michael Brixton, Peter Noy, Korey Bligh and Steve Vorwerk were on the lake today and found it to be in very good condition, hard, dry and flat.
This confirms that Speed Week 2019 is most definitely on.

Looking for characters....

I have been contacted by a producer from SBS. "I'm making a story about SPEED and why we like it so much. If you could connect me with some characters/racers, who are competing at Dry Lakes that'd be great. I can roam around on the day at the raceway and interview people on the go but it'd be helpfu...

Re: Pre-Entries have closed

Please do not post or email your late entry now, bring it with you to the salt. Make sure you have completed the Hazardous Fuel Register Section. And have 2 copies of the Materials Safety Data Sheets.
Same goes for Volunteer Nominations.
