All results have now been posted. The track tables will now be compiled and records attributed. This is expected to take several days.



The track conditions started off damp but to very good. We ran a short track to the 4 mile in the morning, at opened up to 6 mile in the afternoon. Some of the quicker cars were still having trouble putting the power to the salt.



There was about 5mm of water over the lake this morning and as of 5,00pm today the surface is virtually dry with just a few puddles remaining. the track was groomed late this after noon in preparation for tomorrow.



This story may sound unfortunately familar to some.
We had a big storm come through last night and dump a fair amount of rain on the lake. We currently have about 15mm of standing water. The lake is closed for the day and racing cancelled for Tuesday. There will be another assessment made this afternoon.
Startline for track 1 was moved last night to try and get away from the soft salt.
If we can run we will still be running later in the week, right now we need some wind to move this water.
Temps for Tueday 32 -38
Wednesday 32 - 37
Thursday 33 - 39
Friday 32 - 41



We have had some showers this afternoon and the racing was called off at 3.00pm. The spectator area at the startline is extremely spongy and the public entrance to that area has been closed. Still managed 68 runs on track 1 before lunch. Craig Rogers has run a 207, Bronze Aussie and Eva have made their licenceing passes. Jim Knapp has made a 200 mph shake down run.
We are moving the track 1 start line up a mile.



Just got off the phone from the Inspection team.
In their words the lake is in the best condition he has seen it for many years. It won't need much dragging.
The road from Iron Knob to the turn off was very, very good. they sat on 80 but could have sat on 100. The private road from the turn off to the tanks and on to the salt was very good. Even the road from the tanks to the camp was in good condition.
So that's the latest and greatest.
Speed Week 2023 is most definitely ON!
See you all on the salt.



ONLINE entries have now closed. Entries will still be accepted at the Registration van on the salt.

Entry Form

New for 2023, the idea for the Golden Ticket came about as a way to raise / retain funds for the club and provide something that the entrants have been asking for.
Any previous entrant from a cancelled Speed Week with fees held by the club now has the option to forfeit their entry fee in return for a golden ticket which entitles them to enter a daily draw. The draw will take place on the Sunday afternoon prior to Speed Week and 5 names will be drawn out, one for each consecutive day of racing. The lucky winners will be entitled to be the first vehicle off the start line on that day. A Golden Ticket can be transferrable to another entrant, officials must be notified prior to the ticket being presented. Just contact the Secretary to let us know you want to take part.
