28th Annual Speed Week

Lake Gairdner South Australia

Monday 12th March to Friday 16th March

The DLRA conducts its annual Speed Week at Lake Gairdner in South Australia. It's straight line speed on "the big white dyno", as fast as you go in the remote Australian outback. There is no setting like it anywhere in the world, it is a truely unique event in a spectacular location. There is an amazing range of cars, motorcycles and trucks dating from the turn of the century to modern day.
Spectators are welcome, but you need to be pretty much self sufficent.

 

New for 2018 is the WORLD SPEED TRIALS. This is an FIM regulated event for motorcycles and will run from Saturday 17th March to Monday 19th March 2018. For all information go to the DLRA World Speed Trails page or the World Speed Trails website
