WELCOME RACE FANS, SPONSORS AND VOLUNTEERS

Speedway is not an easy sport to make happen in any normal year, and this year has definitely thrown a spanner in the works! It takes a lot of support financially from a lot of  businesses in our community and even with the grim start to 2020 we have been overwhelmed with the support that we have received from them again.

It takes a lot of personnel on the ground, both visible and behind the scenes to make this happen before and on a race night. And these people are volunteers that don’t do it for money but for the love of our sport and the community that it creates. Working constantly well before and throughout the season is a small group of people that make up our committee. This year has put up new challenges in navigating our way forward to get to where we are now and their passion and persistence has been the best that I have ever worked with. So to all of these businesses and individuals I say a massive thank you!

The drivers and teams putting on a show tonight have also worked extremely hard to get here as they do every year. Some had pulled cars apart completely thinking this was not going to be possible this year and thought that it would be a year to sit back and tinker on their machines, but have made a big push to get everything back together and ready to race tonight and I am sure their families have felt the brunt of all that extra work that takes. So sit back, grab a drink from our very reasonably priced bar, one of the best burgers in town from the canteen and enjoy watching these passionate men, women and children do what they love and pour so much of their time into.

Please have respect for fellow spectators and be mindful this is a family event. Please respect the venue that has been built by the local speedway community over 50 or more years. And most of all, respect the social distancing and hygiene measures in place at this time. The last thing everyone needs is for our states extremely good work in preventing the spread of COVID-19 to be undone.

Lets go racing!

Tom Oliver, Broome Speedway Club President.

Members need to get in and help run the club , we had a very energetic and motivated committee last year that got the ball rolling with the club heading in the right direction and without new people coming on board to fill vital positions to ensure we can run meets we risk having all the good work undone

The piano bar is the name of the room to the right of the Pearlers bar as you walk in the front doors.

there is no piano in the bar.

Broome Speedway

This weekend Riley Dunne has been nominated in Broome Sports Awards 2020 - Rising Star of the Year.

What a stellar junior career this boy has had and only 16.

Has a family background of speedway, we always knew big things were to come and it’s not over yet. This young man started out in junior quarter midgets and went on to the rear wheel drive that was speedway. We watched him spin, turn, and have fun racing with his mates and give his mum and dad even pop a run for their money. 😜

BBC racing went with the times and found themselves in a front wheel drive, Riley was able to take this on like water to a ducks back. Took it in his stride and was able to compete, like a champ in the field of the new age of front wheelers and fuel injection.

Being able to travel the state before the dreaded COVID-19 hit, Riley didn’t only make his family proud, he has made all of us Speedway fans proud.

Guts and determination saw Riley leading the B main of the Australian Title... with only a flat tyre letting him down.

Riley went onto to the WA State Title and was awesome enough to hold WA State #3.

Being chosen to have an opportunity in a Late Model along the way. Which I am sure Mum, Dad and Pop are all jealous.

Not to forget he has now joined the the Beethoven roll over club.

Broome Speedway Club could not be prouder to claim you as their own.

Bigger things are awaiting our young man.

Goodluck Riley we are behind you and a massive congratulations to all you have done, achieved and we know you will continue to do.

HIGGS WINS LAST LAP THRILLER

Gary Higgs has won the SSA Super Sedan WA Title in the most thrilling fashion at Albany’s Attwell Park on Saturday night, taking the lead on the final lap, before a massive crowd at the Great Southern venue.

Higgs, after more than 30 years of trying, and having finished second on five occasions, finally broke through to defeat a gallant Damon Trouchet and Rob Knox, while defending Champion Chris Pavlovich would finish fourth.

On a bruising night, only 17 drivers would start the main event, but that number reduced by three before a lap was completed, eliminating Warren Minshull, Kyle Larson and Steve Schofield, with Minshull hitting the fence heavily in the main straight, leaving Larson no where to go, ending his race as well, resulting in a complete restart.

The second start would have numerous cars spin in Turn three, resulting in a third attempt with Trouchet leading narrowly over Jason Batchelor, Gary Higgs, Kevin Bell and Chris Pavlovich.

On lap three, Bell spun in turn one, with Pavlovich deemed the cause of the stoppage, with the defending champion sent to the rear of the field. All of a sudden, young Zac Minshull from Broome who started from position eleven found himself in fourth place, and subsequently fighting for the lead.

A further stoppage on lap six would then see Kevin Bell pass Trouchet before the cone on the subsequent restart, and when Tristan Green soon after hit the fence, Bell was relegated to the rear of the field.

On lap eight, Zac Minshull would succumb with a flat tyre while in third, which again bunched the field, with Pavlovich storming back through the field.

Trouchet, Higgs and Batchelor continued the battle out front, with Kevin Bell, like Pavlovich storming back through the field, but his race would be over on lap twenty three in turn one, with electrical issues.

The final seventeen laps would be a thrilling affair, with at times three wide racing for the lead between Trouchet, Higgs and Batchelor. Batchelor drove amazingly in a borrowed car, with a borrowed engine after blowing up an engine in official practice on the Friday night, but his race was over just short of the finish with a deflated tyre, leaving Trouchet and Higgs to fight it out, with the pair swapping the lead numerous times in the concluding stages.

Higgs took the lead on the final lap to win by a car length after forty gruelling laps, with the elation evident on the veteran drivers face, after winning what he described as one of the hardest titles of his life.

Trouchet, who used to be a pit crew member for Higgs, was highly gracious in his praise for Higgs as well as for his crew, who worked until midday to get the car ready, while Rob Knox was elated in his first ever podium finish.
