WELCOME RACE FANS, SPONSORS AND VOLUNTEERS

With the belated start to our last Season due to COVID-19 which included the cancellation of our

biggest event for the year, and the subdued tourist season, our club navigated it’s way through this very challenging time and managed to put on an amazing season with the help of our generous sponsors.

This year we have another very strong and

dedicated committee that are determined to give our

members, competitors, sponsors and spectators the best season we possibly can.

We will run our very successful blue ribbon events throughout the year including Shinju Matsuri, Broome Vs Derby, Modlite WA State Title and our annual Demolition Derby along with many other club shows.

We hope you enjoy the ride !

Lets go racing!

Tom Oliver, Broome Speedway Club President.

RIP John Zinner

Remembering a true Gentleman…. It is with deep sadness we are paying respect to a much loved, driver, dedicated member, life member and volunteer, John Zinner. John was a gentleman on and off the racetrack and was a quiet achiever, rather being behind the scenes with not much fuss but always be the first to stick his hand up to help get the job done.

John flew the Holden flag with pride and chose his beloved idol Peter Brocks 05 for his Street Stock. Taking a back seat with racing when his love of birds overcome the need for speed, 12 Mile Bird Park was born.

Mark Dunne remembers his first meeting with JZ was long before a bird park was even in thoughts. He was the building contractor I first worked with in One Arm Point, while I was working with Pindan Fencing. It was Nev that talked John into taking the leap to buying that first Torana Street Stock, which is when we all had that opportunity to get to know the bloke that to so many of us is more like an Uncle rather than just a friend.

The man was loyal – not just to his friends but to the entire community. Wanting to support local business before outsiders and support the Broome Speedway Club when he could whether that be in donation of his time, which continued long after his racing career finished or chasing sponsors or putting his hand in his own pocket, there was very few times he didn’t put his hand up.

The man was genuine – In no way would he ever go out of his way to offend anyone, but look out if you pissed him off. Which took a fair bit mind you, haha pretty sure we’ve all been there too.

Loved by generations, just in our family alone there are 3 generations that fair dinkem are struggling with the news of his passing.

Funny- fark me talk about a dry sense of humour, never the one to hold a crowd and tell a joke but if you were lucky enough to be the one standing next to him when he’s had a couple of tins you were quite often laughing about something he has said. Never smutty, never sexiest or racist just cleverly funny.

Mick Johnson knows a true Holden man, he raced a Torana first followed by a VL commodore, then a VT commodore. He loved his birds, and would often drive an old caravan converted into an Avery to Perth to pick up a new species, with the birds having the comfort of the air-conditioned van and JZ the swag!! He had many nick names, Bird man, Jonny Balgo, Mr Zinner, but for most of us, it was just JZ. He would love nothing more than a yarn & quiet can with mates, and for me I will miss that the most. The most genuine bloke I’ve had the privilege to know.

Our thoughts are with Sam, Ben and families on the passing of John, Mr JZ, JZ, his presence will be truly missed and remembered forever more.

Big big thanks to everyone who showed up today for the busy bee. We got everything we wanted to done. The new care takers ammenities are all wired up thanks to Mick Johnson. We completely demolished and removed the old shack and saved a lot of money by separating most of the steel from other rubble and filled two recycling bins with cans.
It was a great turnout and has really tidied up the place.
Thanks again.
