  • Green Sheeting on Race Nights (03-10-17)
    Competitors, please be advised that due to the amount of time that is required for green sheeting, green sheeting will only be done at the track on race nights under these conditions:
    -You must pre-book with your class scrutineer
    -Must be done before 3pm
     
  • Volunteers Required (03-10-17)
    We are still looking for volunteers to fill some roles at the track this coming season. Volunteers are required for Infield, Pit lane and Lap scoring positions. Please contact Joan Parker on 06 764 7186 if you are interested in helping out.
  • Speedway Licences (01-10-17)
    Please not that racing licences can only be purchased online this season.  Night licences are the only licences that can still be purchased at the track.  SNZ Online Licencing

  • Sending membership forms to club when purchasing through SNZ (01-10-17)
    Whenb purchasing TSCC club memberships through the SNZ website, please remember that you still need to fill in a membership form and either scan and email it to correspondence@stratford-speedway.co.nz or post it to PO Box 397, Stratford.  We encourage you to purchase your memberships directly though the club as it makes the process easier for the staff and the TSCC gets the full amount of the fee (If you purchase through the SNZ site, 3% is lost to a transaction fee).

  • Ambulance cost increase (01-10-17)
    Due to the high cost of the amublance/St Johns per race night (around $1000), the dollar amount that is required to be paid by competitors as they enter the track has increased to $10 per competitor for the 2017/18 season.  The fee is payable per race car.

  • Driver Profile Forms (01-10-17)
    It is time again to get your driver profile forms filled in for the coming season.  Driver profile forms are now available to be filled in on the Stratford Speedway website.  The profiles that you submit will be used for the profiles that are played on NZME radio stations (a great way for you to give coverage back to your sponsors!) and some will be used throughout the season in the Saturday night race programs.  Your sponsor information will also be collected from the profiles and used in the competitor listings in the Saturday night race programs.  Space in the programs is limited so please list your sponsors with the most important first as often we can't fit them all in.  Please get your profiles filled in and submitted as soon as possible.

  • Press Release (15-09-17)
    Press Release – 15th September 2017.

    “In recent weeks there have been a number of concerns held by both the Promoters and Competitors surrounding decisions made by the Board of Directors of Speedway New Zealand. One of these included the compulsory application of a ‘Safety Test’ to be completed by every competitor prior to being permitted to obtain their Speedway New Zealand License. This was withdrawn by Speedway New Zealand almost immediately given the surge of complaints they became exposed to from all of those affected. The lack of consideration and transparency exhibited by Speedway New Zealand gave cause to have the majority of club and track promoters request an urgent Special General Meeting with the Board of Directors and the CEO of Speedway New Zealand to discuss these issues. Unfortunately Speedway New Zealand have elected to not chair this meeting based on legal advice obtained.

    To avoid further disruption to the impending speedway season for all concerned, the unanimous decision from club and track promoters is to meet at a suitable time in the near future to discuss and ensure the future of our sport is managed appropriately”.

    1. AmPro Tools Woodford Glen Speedway, 2. Huntly Placemakers Speedway, 3. McDonalds Kihikihi Speedway, 4. Beachlands Speedway Dunedin, 5. Vodafone Speedway Western Springs, 6. Bay Park Family Speedway, 7. Nelson Speedway Association,

  • Using the Avgas facility at Stratford Aerodrome (8-11-16)
    There has been some bad behaviour concerning speedway competitors when collecting avgas from the Stratford Aerodrome.  Please remember to keep your speed down on the access road to the avgas facility.  The farm operates 24/7 and the herd is a chilled out bunch so please don't get aggressive towards them if they are crossing the road.  Please do not shoo them away aggressivley, just get out and quietly move them on if they stop to have a look at you.  The council owns the farm and we don't want to upset them.  Remember, the council owns the land and we don't want to lose access to this facility.

  • Drivers Confirming They Are Racing
    Competitors (including visitors when at all possible), please note that we need you to confirm your attendance for racing by 7pm the Tuesday prior.  There are several reasons for this:
    - Tuesday is the night that the committee meet and the deadline for all our advetising is Wednesday morning.
    -  We need to know how many competitors there are in each class so that we know if your class meets the minimum number required to run.
    - We need to be able to advertise how many competitors there will be in each class to get spectators through the gate.
    - Our race format is put together on Tuesday night.  We format the race program to suit the number of competitors in each class.  Youth Ministocks especially, are likely to have more competitors than what is permitted on the track at one time (30).
    -  We will program the races to suit the confirmed number of competitors in each class.  For example, if thirty Youth Ministocks have confirmed, then we will program three races.  If more than thirty turn up to race, there will still only be space for thirty on the track.  Those that have not confrimed their attendance by Tuesday with the class rep will be the ones that miss out on racing. 
     
  • Race Numbers
    There have been some changes to the proccess for how competitors apply for three digit numbers at Stratford Speedway.  In the past, you needed to apply to the TSCC and they applied to Speedway New Zealand on your behalf.  That process has now been changed and you now apply direct to Speedway New Zealand yourself.  Please read the information in this document so you can be clear on the number issuing process for single digit, double digit and triple digit numbers.
