Speed Week 2020

 

30th Annual Speed Week

Lake Gairdner South Australia

Monday 23rd March to Friday 27th March 2020

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 can go on a salt lake in the remote Australian outback. There is no setting like it anywhere in the world, it is a truly 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 sufficient.

 

For 2020 the DLRA will also be hosting the 2nd World Speed Trials Australia, inviting cars and bikes to make attempts on World and National Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme FIM records.
