After Michael Miller dropped the 10 lap Super Sedan Track Record by 20 seconds at our last meeting, quite a few people have asked where this (and other records) stack up against the old records before the track was reconfigured before the start of the 2014/15 season. Surprisingly, there are still quite a few old records that haven't been bettered plus a handful of race lengths that haven’t had a new time set. Below is a summary of those old records that are still standing (current recor...Read Full Post »

Welcome to 2016 everyone. Whilst most have had some time off over the festive period, there’s been plenty going on at Sunline Speedway.
With the recent changes to speedway track safety requirements, infield tyre barriers have been erected and painted. As well as this, the majority of the venue has had a lick of paint to freshen everything up. The infield lighting has been upgraded, and from early tests it looks much brighter through the turns, which then spills onto the straights....Read Full Post »

After the recent United Speedway Association Inc. (U.S.A.) AGM, it seems that some people still have a misconception about what the U.S.A is and how it’s different to Sunline Speedway.
Sunline Speedway is the racing venue, and was given this name by Wacka and Jen when they took over the promotion of the venue in 1999 from the Waikerie Speedway Club. As owners and promoters of the venue, they have the final say in what happens at the venue and aren't held accountable by...Read Full Post »
