1991 EDENHOPE SPEEDWAY
Edenhope Speedway was a short circuit outlaw track in Victoria, The motorcycle scramble track had closed down and the venue was made available by the local shire to build a speedway.
One early foundation member was Peter Riley, The track was based on the Black Rock circuit in South Australia, The boys went to Black Rock one day and returned with a rule book around 1991.
Edenhope ran A, B and C grade sedans based mainly on driver ability, The track was never registered with the VSC or any other controlling body, they didn't consider themselves as a speedway.
The peanut shaped track was cut out in the paddock along Apsley Road and had no fences circling the track, The land was common ground under the control of the Edenhope Shire.
Speedway sedan driver Chris Munns was a competitor at Edenhope in its early days before his foray into speedway racing.
After the car racing ceased around 1999, The grounds were used for mud racing before completely closing, The site was then purchased by the Horse Racing fraternity.
Most of the Edenhope members continued racing at the newly established venue at nearby Aspley, The Aspley circuit venture was put forward by Chris Munns after retiring from speedway.
