complete our capitol works program and have the circuit race ready for the traditional Speedweek Series over the Christmas/New year period and fortunately the Perth Motorplex stepped in and ran Bunbury Speedway's round, he said.
Kade said, The Bunbury Speedway has undertaken major works to bring the popular Southwest Speedway venue up to International venue up to International and Speedway Australia's standards. We have completely re-shaped the track and added in some clay to the old surface from the guys at MJB Industries, Piacentini and sons and Murray Hanson. We have also installed a new concrete safety fence, and a state-of-the-art catch fence, including installing re-enforced exit and entry gates to the pit area and I thank the teams from MJB Industries and Hotweld Fabrications for the work and the huge effort they put in.
We have worked tirelessly and we are all very excited with the outcome and really looking forward to our new season of racing commencing again on the 28th.
Kade Helms said, We are very proud of our facilities. The changes we have made to the venue are very impressive and we hope to attract hard core speedway fans, families, and the corporate sector to enjoy some great entertaining and competitive racing.
The Bunbury Car Club has also recently secured an extension on there long term lease arrangment for the land and facilities at Bunbury Speedway from the City of Bunbury, which runs through until 2030.
The Bunbury Speedway venue has played a significant role in the development of speedway in regional Western Australia and has hosted some world class competitors over many years.
In its early years the Bunbury circuit hosted international solo Test matches and individual World solo Champions and in more recent years some of the best Speedcar and Sprintcar drivers in the World.
I for one cant wait for the popular venue to re-open and to see first-hand and new facilities it has to offer.

2022 - BUNBURY CITY SPEEDWAY TRIPPLE HEADER SEDAN NIGHT 28th & 29th January 2022
Bunbury City Speedway burst back into life on friday night with night one of two with the Triple Header Sedan Car feature, never before has a payday of $10,000 for Street Stocks and $10,000 for Production Sedans, as well as a major feature for Junior Sedans.
As the case with many speedways Australia wide, Bunbury was effected by all the problems associated with Covid. Add to that the track fece upgrade that delayed the opening because of bad weather that stalled the concrete pouring.
But never the less, thanks to John Hovey who led the construction team, the masive upgrade was completed in time for this tripple header Sedan Car feature.
This meeting show cased the running of the East Pilbara Tyre Service Summer Cup
for Street Stocks, The Hills Panel Repairs Gold Cup for Production Sedans and the KJB Gold cup for both New Star and Top star Juniors.
Support action on the night was provided by the Legend Cars and the Super Mods.
Jamie Oldfield's Payday
Jamie Oldfield has demonstrated once again that when he brings his A game he is a class above the rest.
Jamie in the Luke and Rose Novel owned Commodore has taken out this years East Pilbara Tyre Service summer cup for street stocks.
Meanwhile the race between Norman and Kinsella kept the crowd on their toes as both drivers went toe to toe in the heavy lapped traffic, with Norman edging out Kinsella for second, forth was Ethan Genev.
Not only was Jamie up and about in the race car but he also spent a lot of time assisting the track maintainance crew with some valuable advise and jumping up in the water truck to prepare to track through the course of the meeting.
Kyle Sayer's Payday
Kyle Sayer has stepped up after a long run of runner up finishes as he was able to defeat Ayden Trewern and team mate Tom Wilde in the Hills Panel Repairs Production Sedan Gold Cup.
Trewern was the man to beat all weekend winning all three heat races on friday night along with the dash on Saturday to start on pole for the thirty lap final. But it was Sayer who was able to get the jump at the
start and control the race from there on in. The pair where in a class of their own for the A Main distancing themselves from a wild pack of drivers who were all fighting for the third spot on the podium. But it was the eleventh starting Wilde who stood strong to run home in third. Barry Rose in the Sigma came in forth.
Nathan Brennan Dominated the Legend Cars at Bunbury
Local Bunbury racer Nathen Brennan has come out on top at the end of the fifteen lap feature race for Legend Cars at Bunbury on Saturday night, during the running of the re-opening meeting, post the recent major upgrades to the entire venue.
The upgrades that are valued around 1.5 million dollars were very much depended on people like Nathan who is a managing director of Bunbury Plumbing Servives a long time supporter of Bunbury City Speedway.
Nathen in winning the feature by over nine seconds, and setting the fastest lap of 20.189 seconds in the race, led home Travis Gould while another Bunbury racer in Dean Finlan finished in third.

When the Supermods roll out of the pits gates at Bunbury City Speedway it takes us back in time to the 1970's when Bunbury first opened. Back then it was names such as Resta, Laughton, Geneve, Barbagallo, Lamp, Wheat and many more.
Coming forward our current day driver's are still prepared to do battle against each other with a serious amount of attitude. This Jason's Digital Racing Photos show's
things getting real at Bunbury. After a big weekend it was Darrall Smith who stood on the top step of the podium for this round of their Country Series, second was Sean Leary and third Cameron Shepherd.

Champion at bay. But as they entered turn three Dellar locked the brakes and drifted wide but was lucky to catch a break with Vince Lindsay coming to a stop on the front straight.
With a green white checker restart Dellar was put back in his position at the front of the field and this time didn't put a foot wrong taking the checker ahead of Oldfield who had one last crack on the outside to the line, with Pack right behind them.

Blake never gave up
The V6 Wingless Sprints as always put on a ripper show tonight. Matty Fellows won the first heat ahead of Cody Nash and Chad Pittard.
A furious heat 2 contained a red light stoppage when Dean Gittos ended his race after flipping the car in turn 4. Daran Humfrey went on to win the race leading home the West Australian chap, Matt Iwanow and Warren Hunter.
Heat 3 and it got fairly hectic again, with another red light stopage after Gareth Smith and Cody Nash tangled. Blake Iwanow won this heat leading home brother Matt and Daran Humfrey.
Heat 4 went to Brandon Sharpe, Brendon Wedge 2nd and Brad Fitzgerald in 3rd.
The 20 lap feature race initially looked like it was maybe going to be a runaway victory to Daran Humfrey as he led away the 17 car field. at this point Brendon Wedge held down 2nd from Matt Iwanow, Brandon Sharpe and Blake Iwanow.
While the field were all involved in there own little races, it was Humfrey that was driving away, even in lapped traffic he was extending his lead. With just 4 laps remaining a spinning Gareth Smith brought on the yellows and the field was compressed once again. The greens were activated and all bets were off, the main focus was on the first two cars, Humfreys led the race for nineteen and three Quarter laps only to be passed by Blake Iwanow in the last corner. 3rd went to Brendon Wedge, 4th Mathew Iwanow, 5th Brandon Sharpe, 6th Matty Fellows, 7th Tom Britton, 8th Chad Pittard, 9th Daniel Keen, 10th Robbie Clarke, 11th Cody Nash, 12th Gareth Smith, 13th Warren Hunter, 14th Kate Walsh.

2022 - BUNBURY CITY SPEEDWAY KRIKKE BOYS SHOOTOUT 26th February 2022
Once again for another year the Boy's Race has topped the entertainment charts for the year with this 25th running. Covid restrictions stopped many interstate teams from attending, but it didn't really matter as the open Sprintcar fields have gained in numbers in the past 2 year's. Many of these local drivers have shown that on there night they are equal to the challenge with the more experienced teams. Young and fearless is what makes these drivers step up. and boy dont they put on a show.
As announced by the Krikke Boys team, that this will be the final Bunbury running of the event. fact is if the race continues next year at another track, of course thats up to the boys. As was seen on Saturday night the venue was packed and full of emotion, The atmosphere at Bunbury is always off the gauge when the sprintcar carnival hits Town. many consider spectating at Bunbury the ultimate rush as you are so close to that safety fence. Lets hope that if the race does continue at another venue, They do the event in such a manner that pays tribute to the entire Krikke family and our Bunbury fans travel.
The 25th running of the Boys race would go down in history as the track that destroyed tyres. Many cars were forced infield with blown tyres as the 30 lap feature came to a close. A good car set up and the ability to minimise the throttle stomping was going to win the race.
Kris Coyle's Biggest Win
Just prior to the 30 lap feature getting under way we where treated to a very emotional display when Ron and brother John did some parade laps, Ron in the Larry Maiolo owned Darrel Krikke 95 and John in the Krikke Motorsport, Shane Krikke 2 hot rod as they sometimes refer to
Thank you to the entire Krikke Boys team for 24 out of 25 years of world class entertainment
When the race got underway it would be Harding and David Priolo at the front courtesy of their wins in the Dashes. A few stoppages kept the field bunched up and everyone in a chance of the win or at least a podium. With nineteen to go Harding still had the advantage over David Priolo and Scott Millings.
With thirteen laps remaining David Priolo exited the race after crashing into the safety fence. On the restart it was still Harding, this time from Inglis, Nash, Kingshot in the Krikke Motorsport car and Milling.
As cars were retiring to the infield Callum Williamson was on a charge to the front. There were even more outs with blown tyres in the last 5 laps. Kingshott, Williamson, Maiolo, Inglis and Cam McKenzie all pulling infield.
With just two to go it was Harding, Coyle, Milling, Wormall, Mewett, Andrew Priolo, Mathew Cross and Jack Williamson. Everyone was on a razors edge, did they have enough rubberfor those last laps. The surface of the race line that had taken rubber al night was black.
Just when Harding looked like claiming the a well deserved victory he to blew a tyre finishing in second. Coyle stole the win off him as the checker was waving. Add to that a gutted Harding would loose his second place as the car was under weight. This would move Milling up to second and Andrew Priolo third.
K r i s C o y l e Steels the Win
Perth based racer Kris Coyle has snatched victory away from Daniel Harding on the last corner of this great race, as Daniel turned the Merger Motorsport entry infield with a flat tyre.

Twin Features Format to Oldfield and Lyall
The month of madness Street Stock trail got underway at Bunbury City Speedway tonight. The preperation to the race track lent its self to a very high standard of racing through the heats.
The opening 20 lap A main was looking like a runaway win to Jamie Oldfield until Jace Kempton who had worked his way forward, tagged onto the back of the leader and was looking very much like a serious threat.
But not to be, at races end it would be 1st Jamie Oldfield, 2nd Jace Kempton, 3rd Jake Hoath, 4th Matt Hammond, 5th Ethan Geneve, 6th Brooke Oldfield, 7th
Matt Iwanow, 8th Steve Rodley, 9th Adam Houston, 10th Trent Lyall, 11th Jim Dixon, 12th Lachlan Dellar, 13th Adam Power. 10 other drivers failed to finish.

Hoath's Classic Win
Derby's Jake Hoath has survived to win night two of the Month of madness trail at Bunbury City Speedway. even after a last corner mistake could have cost him the race.
Prior to the feature getting underway, Jamie Oldfield was forced to come through the B Main. Damon Lyall also in the B main failed to start because of brake issues.
Lachie Dellar and Robert Dunbar who were off the front row together would get together on the 1st lap of the feature and end up on the grass. This would move Norman to the front row on the restart, he grabbed the lead and was looking solid, until a driveline problem forced him to the infield, up front it was Hoath and Kempton battling it out,
But not for long as Oldfield was on mission and charged past them to take the lead. As Jamie was about to pull off another one of those wins from way down the back and a B main, with just 5 laps to go this engine expired and he parked it on the grass.

2022 BUNBURY SPEEDWAY INAUGURAL WINTER NATIONALS 4th June 2022
Saturday the 4th of June 2022 saw the running of the inaurural Winter Nationals at the re-vamped Bunbury City Speedway, over one and a half million dollars has been sunk into the venue of the last twelve months, New concrete track wall with all new gates, The catch fence has been completley replaced, all of this to a world standard. The infield drainage system has been upgraded. A Large water supply pipe as well as electrical cables has been buried underground from the main water tank in the pits out to the infield, so the water trucks are filled on the infield. Many other upgrades have been carried out.
All of this comes at a huge cost, so the current President and his innovative committee have had to look outside of the current modeling of the Bunbury Speedway and put the venue to greater use.
This planning has led to the running of AASA sanctioned events as well as the existing NASRA or Speedway Australia as the prefered to be called sanctioning. This is a system widely used in America and allow tracks to hold more meetings per year.
On this particular occasion an independent group set up by two AASA sanctioned divisions formed a working committee headed up by Brad Ludlow and presented a proposal to the Bunbury Car Club. With some input from the Speedways President Kade Helms to concept was born. The meeting promised to be a good one, with two big feature events, The running of the Australia V8 Non Wing Championship, as well as the final and concluding round of the West Australian Pro Modified Championship. Both of these divisions are real crowd pleaser's as they are fast and those big V8's echo within the concrete walls of the big Bunbury Bullring.

B i l l S t o c k s Australia 1
Bunbury Speedway was the host of a bumper field of V8 Non Wing Sprints for the 2021 / 2022 Australian Championship. Fourteen cars in the pits was certainly a site to see for this division that is slowly growing.
For many. Hot Laps was the first chance most of the drivers had to circulate the clay way in some sort of anger. Unfortunately Paul Harris ended his night in hot laps when he got into the wall between turns one and two heavily and doing unrepairable damage to his number 12 machine.
Each driver participated in three heats and the final. Heat racing didn't agree with a couple of cars, Troy Beckingham chased a
mechanical problem all night, Lee Redmond hurt an engine while Mark Cracknell suffered an oiling issue. Ten cars presented for their chance to be Australia Champion. With Bill Stocks off pole and Matt Watkins on his outside, led the charge into the first corner. Matt Kennedy was the first retirement, passing the start line but not the finish line and in that joined the upside down club. Paul Bennett was the next to retire when he barrel rolled his car on the back straight while riding a wheel.
Third time lucky and the race was os on. Stocks got the jump on Watkins, Beckingham slotted in behind Watkins followed by Fiedler, Humbly, Morrison, Mathews and Rayner. With about fifteen of the twenty laps completed Humbley parked the 73 car in turn 4 up near the wall with steering issues ending his chances and bunching the field up for the final few laps to chase the glory. Green again and Stock leads the way followed by Watkins, Beckingham and Jade Mathews (coming from position 10) slotting into P4 and this was the way they finished at the checquered flag. Fiedler pulled infield late in the race while Rayner made a late pass on Morrison for position five and six respectively.

A huge congradulations to Brad Ludlow on taking out the 2021 / 2022 West Austrlian Pro Modified Championship at Bunbury Speedway on Saturday night the 4th of June 2022. Brad went into the final of the 3 round championship leading the points. This win well and truely wrapped up the series for him, Matt Bozveld and Damien Birch joinded Brad on the podium.
Brad number 92 Chevy powered machine that never faulted all night, wasnt the only thing he was driving. He was also in charge of driving the Winternationals bus, he was joined by his wife Usunta, well infact his entire family, Amanda Edmunds who steered the bus at times, infact the whole Winternationals committee all worked as a team to pull this 1st ever AASA race meeting at Bunbury City Speedway.
I must say this group did an outstanding job, through all the pre planning, then walking into an strange venue. But with the assistance of Kade Helms and Leeanne Evans from the Bunbury Car Club, the meeting flowed through quite nicely.
The amount of volunteers that stepped up (many for the first time at this track) was over wellming. The Speedway Commission were on hand assisting, Around 75 competitors, every volunteer position that was required was filled. There was a lot of people under a lot of pressure having a lot of fun and success at the same time.
