The Story of Bairnsdale Speedway Association Inc.
Bairnsdale Speedway Association, a volunteer-run community organisation, began about 40 years ago and started racing at Granite Rock Speedway, on the northern outskirts of Bairnsdale. This is still its home. The club began with daylight race meetings, progressing to night racing. Currently we plan, seven night race meetings per season, from November to April.
The club works very closely with a number of volunteer groups at the race meetings, and in turn donates annual amounts to these organisations.
The Community Volunteers Organisation operates the canteen at each race meet, while Lakes Entrance Lions Club handles the entry gate and traffic control. The Community Events First Aid provides first aid and injury management and Sarsfield Fire Brigade provides emergency safety support for the races.
In the past ten years, BSA has focussed on significant upgrades of the track, including 360 metres of level 5 safety fencing to ensure the safety of spectators, crews and drivers. This is the highest safety fence in Victoria. This was one reason the Victorian Speedway Council, voted Bairnsdale Speedway Association the top speedway racing club in Victoria, for season 2007/2008. Since then the lights on the track have been updated, the spectators fence has been improved and the canteen has been reconditioned. Major improvements to the toilet block has been completed and the Pit area has been enlarged.Other categories included efficiency of race meetings, organisation, standard of facility, safety, value entertainment and enjoyment.
State Championships are regularly held at BSA’s raceway at Granite Rock. In the 2015/16 season there will be three state titles held at the track They are the Limited Sportman in February, Mini Sprints at the Easter meeting (March) and the Marsh Modifieds in April.We are also holding the Bairnsdale Autobarn 2000 for the return of the Street Stocks to Bairnsdale after a number of years.
The major event of the racing season is traditionally on Boxing Day. This night race meet has usually the largest crowd of the season attending. This season, the crowd will thrill to Super Sedans, as well as the VSC Sprintcars, Mini Sprints, , Limited Sportsman and the Standard Saloons. The VSC Sprintcars are always popular with the crowd and compete five times at Granite Rock this season.
Bairnsdale Speedway Association strives to provide good-value family entertainment to the Bairnsdale and district community. The audience ranges from very young children to grandparents. During the summer and at Easter, locals and visitors to the region enjoy the racing. Outside the racing season, the Bairnsdale Speedway has periodically been used for school concerts, Monster Trucks and 4WD races, Lawn Mower races and Alpine Rally Cars.
