Avon Valley Speedway Monster Truck Letter

As Promotions Manager of Avon Valley Speedway Pty Ltd, I must apologise to the community who were disappointed with the recent The Great Monster Showdown at Avon Valley Speedway. There were many factors that worked against the venue management which resulted in a substandard show.

AVS Pty Ltd leased the venue with the good intentions of a fantastic show for the people of the Avon Valley region. Unfortunately we leased the venue to a Promoter that was very hard to work with, which provided a substandard show such as cancelling fireworks at the last minute etc. We will not be leasing the venue to this party again and will put in much stronger quality controls for future leased events.

I must personally thank the Shire of Northam, who went out of their way to help us in many aspects. We must also thank the spectators who turned up in big numbers and we hope they will support Speedway Events at the venue this coming season.

We respect the patrons of the venue and intend to bring top quality motorsport events to the region now and into the future with events such as USA vs WA Sprintcars. To reward patrons of their support this season we are hosting a Free Spectator Entry night on January 27th and have many nights with cheap family tickets of $35.
If anyone would like to discuss this further please contact us on

Sky to Light Up This Saturday Night 28.11.16

Celebrating the festive season this weekend, Avon Valley Speedway has put together a special event for children of all ages. A big fireworks display (Subject to weather) will dazzle the sky with company West Coast Fireworks promising some new fireworks never seen before.

Also a Kids Pushbike Race will allow youngsters to get on the racetrack and do a lap of the race track, to enter all you need to do is bring your bike along on the night and wait for the call to assemble. Other kid’s activities include bouncy castles and face painting, plus a visit from Santa later in the night.

On the racing side, Speedcars headline the night with several interesting nominations. A big field of fourteen cars have nominated including last start winner Steven Doyle. Doyle has been dominant this year with back to back feature wins in recent meetings.

But this meeting is different with several big name Perth drivers nominating including Chris Telenta and Travis White. Both drivers have potent machinery and won’t take to dial into the racetrack. A special Indian File Race will see the fastest of the rear that people won’t want to miss.

AMCA Nationals will make their season debut with solid field of cars nominated including recent Motorplex winner Brad Wright. AMCA Nationals run a V8 engine combined with a full space frame chassis, resulting in an affordable and strong racecar.

Other visiting drivers include Kalgoorlie’s Glen Fiorenza and former Late Model State Champion Brad Ludlow. Holden Vs Ford Street Stocks will battle it out with Jason Oldfield the hot favourite but expect a lot of pressure from Simon McNabb and Peter Seaton.

Junior Sedans will compete for their Junior Sedan cup on the night. These guys and girls can start racing at the age of 10 to 16 and put on fantastic racing throughout the night. Popular cars include Charades, Corollas and now Excels.

Kids are free all season, so come out and enjoy a fantastic night family entertainment.

Doyle’s Magical Last Lap

Coming into Saturday night’s Speedcar Feature Race, Steven Doyle had beaten all contenders in both his heat races to sit on pole position. Half way through the race luck went south with a spin resulting in Doyle going to the rear.

With only 4 laps left in the race, Doyle used the highline to perfection to be on the tail of race leader Keven Miles. With a perfect last lap on the highline Doyle stole the race win the last corner from Miles.

This was only one of several exciting race events at Avon Valley Speedway on the weekend, which held its first night meeting in eight years. A good field of competitors were greeted with a healthy crowd, enjoying a beautiful spring evening trackside.

Matt Brown took off from where he finished last meeting, with a big win in the Formula 500 class, further back Cameron Mckenzie, Hayden Norman and Trystan Caley were swapping positions all over the track. With Mckenzie and Norman managing to hold onto second and third spots.

Junior Sedans had their first visit to the venue this season and put on some clean, exciting racing. Stefani Ameduri pulled of the race win in her bright blue Charade from Beau Doyle and Izak Davies.

Street Stocks were down on numbers, but made up for that with awesome racing on track between all drivers. The brother combination of Jamie Oldfield and Jason Oldfield were too strong for the competition and dominated at the front of the field. Further back Peter Seaton, Gordon Wyatt and Simon Mcnabb were scrambling for the minor positions. Race winner Jamie Oldfield commented “the track was so fast tonight, basically it was foot flat and hold on”

Avon Valley Speedway returns in three weeks with the Super Sedan Showdown, which is promising to be a huge show with big fields expected from across the state.

ACTION is returning to the Avon Valley Speedway this summer, with a full season of racing planned for the dirt oval track. - 26/05/16

Headlining the track’s schedule are the awesome V8 Non Wing Sprint Cars, which for the first time in Australia will be racing on September 17.

The V8 Non Wing Sprints are loud, exciting and produce spectacular racing in the United States of America.

V8 Non Wing Sprintcars are affiliated with one of the sport’s biggest sanction bodies USAC, who in the past have sanctioned the Indy 500 and recently those crazy stadium super trucks seen at V8 Supercar rounds.

One of the great benefits of this partnership is the ability for the racing to be filmed and shown overseas through motorsport streaming device.

These events are then shown to thousands of overseas viewers who subscribe to the service. This season every V8 Non Wing Sprint event at Avon Valley Speedway will be filmed, with several plans already to include information on the region and tourist attractions.

Speaking to promotions manager Jason Bloxsidge, he said this is the first time an Australian speedway class has been showcased to the world.

“And from speaking to some overseas viewers, they are really keen to visit our unique part of the world,” he said.

...from speaking to some overseas viewers, they are really keen to visit our unique part of the world. - Jason Bloxsidge - Promotions manager Avon Valley Speedway

“Huge thanks must go to Loud Pedal Productions and we look forward to working with the local tourism body to showcase the region.”

However the big news doesn’t end there, with the venue recently announcing several big shows.

The biggest event will be the USA v WA test match, which will see three overseas racing legends visit Australia for the first time to compete against the best locals for bragging rights.

This special Sunday event will also pay homage to the late Michael Figlomeni, a true legend of the sport, with a 34 lap main event.

Another big show announced is the first ever WA Classic Speedway Festival, featuring a static display and on track demonstration plus modern speedway cars.

The complex is also looking to work with Roadwise to promote road safety, a major issue in the Wheatbelt region.

Future motorsports planned include autocross, off-road buggies, burnouts and driver training.
