Wahgunyah Speedway are getting themselves set for a sizzling 2018/19 season that gets underway on Boxing Day December 26th. During the off season the club and its members have been very busy making further improvements to the facility located on the Murray River flats amongst the towering redgums, the committee and members of the Corowa Rutherglen Motorsports Club have been instrumental in bringing the venue up to the standards it is at today.
The club have now extended the pits to accommodate the large car attendance they have been achieving over the last few years and with this year’s big events it was certainly a good move. After the completion of the new pit office and storage building it was decided that it was to good an opportunity not to utilize the position it was in, the club have now erected a VIP/Sponsors Deck overlooking turn 4, this is a fantastic place to entertain sponsors with the best view in the house.
The big drawcard for the upcoming season would have to be the Victorian Title for Late Models on Australia Day January 26th, with the Australian Title only 2 weeks later at Valvoline Sydney Speedway there is a high chance of a big list of Australia’s best that will be looking to use the Victorian Title as a prelude to the Aussie, with up to 30 Late Models expected it will be one event not to miss.
The Mighty V8 Dirt Modifieds make a return to the wide-open spaces of Wahgunyah Speedway on May 11th, Super Sedans return again on May 25th, AMCA Nationals have to visits to the 610-metre circuit and the season will finish with a bang on June 9th with the Victorian Title for the pocket rocket Legend Cars and we welcome the SDAV Hotrods to Wahgunyah for the first time.
To complement all these exciting divisions, Corowa Rutherglen Motorsports Club are very excited to have the VSC Unlimited division as part of their upcoming season, these drivers know how to put on some great racing and Wahgunyah will certainly be no different. All the special events honouring past members will again be run and will always hold special significance for many current members, “Noel McGrath Memorial” (Production Sedans), “Lachie Howie Memorial” (Standard Saloons) and the “Bob Bailey Memorial” (Production Sedans).
Locals Divisions will be there at every event to support the visiting classes and will all have a special feature event during the season, Standard Saloons, VSC Sports Sedans, VSC Open Ladies, VSC Open Juniors and GOSA (Goulburn Ovens Sedan Association) will all be fighting it out to take the club championships.
