• The Australasian Speedway Promoters Association (ASPA) has voted unanimously to back the Speedway Australia Rising Star Program to the tune of $2,000 at last weekend’s annual conference in Melbourne.

    The two-day meeting discussed issues ranging from the rapidly changing world of marketing to licensing issues, and was attended by representatives from Sydney, Brisbane, Warrnambool, Mt Gambier, Toowoomba, Latrobe, Hobart and Murray Bridge, where the motion to donate an increased sum to the Rising Star initiative received instant and unanimous support.

    Premier Speedway General Manager, David Mills moved the motion siting the donation as an investment in the next generation.

    “This is a no-brainer when it comes to where we disperse the association’s excess funds, and we are really starting to see the benefits of this program throughout our sport with the professionalism in presentation and attitude of the younger generation really becoming evident in recent years.”

    The ASPA is a self-funded organisation with the mission to share knowledge and ideas between venue promoters while also creating a forum for other related associations including Speedway Australia, with General Manager Tim Savell on hand to present an in-depth report to the attendees.

    Re-elected Association Chairperson, Guy Thomson was pleased with the outcome of the meeting, and was particularly pleased with the unity amongst the five states represented.

    “This association is seeking to find a united voice on liaison between tracks and competitors, and the members who were able to attend were collectively pleased with the meeting’s discussions. Lots of concepts were shared and ideas sparked which will no doubt benefit the sport around the nation in the next season.”

    The fresh enthusiasm for World Series Sprintcars was also a topic of long conversation, with the APSA body very excited by the rising passion for the series as it steps into fourth decade of competition.

    Next year’s meeting has been slated for the Gold Coast in April, with all Speedway Australia venues encouraged to apply for inclusion in the association, with correspondence through freshly elected Secretary, Darren Shaddock at Darren.Shaddock@MurrayBridgeSpeedway.com.au
