Justin Sedgmen has won the Victorian title last night at Undera Park. The top four (=important for the UK work permits!) were Sedgmen 1st, Zane Keleher 2nd, Josh MacDonald 3rd, and Jaimon Lidsey 4th after a fall and exclusion in the final. Lidsey had scored a fifteen point max in the heats.

Mildura-based English Solo riders Dan Bewley, Kyle Bickley and Tom Brennan made their Australian season debuts in Adelaide on Saturday night, in the opening meeting of the Gillman Speedway summer season, and it was Bewley who took the major honours, clean-sheeting his races to take out the Jack Young Cup.

TAI WOFFINDEN TO RACE AT PERTH MOTORPLEX.

Two times British Champion, three times World Champion, twice winner of The Rob Woffinden Classic and current Western Australian Solo Speedway Champion Tai Woffinden is in town and booked to race at the fabulous Perth Motorplex on Saturday 7th December (2019).

Marshall McDiarmid, President of the Speedway Motorcycle Club of WA and Perth Motorplex Manager Gavin Migro teamed together to ensure they secured this huge event for WA speedway fans.

Tai Woffinden will also race the following week at the Pinjar Park Motorcycle Speedway in Neerabup in Perths northern suburbs the following Saturday night for the running of the Rob Woffinden Classic. He has previously won the title twice and is the defending RWC Champion.

Joining Tai Woffinden at Perth Motorplex will be three other British riders who together form a British Team who will contest a series of events against a strong West Australian side.

Team GB include,
Jack Smith, son of former British Champ, Andy Smith.
Leon Flint, the 16 year old Berwick Bandits flyer.
Drew Kemp 2019 British under 19 Champion.

Headlining the Team WA will be former International rider, Frank Smart, the in-form Dan Winchester and Matt Marson.

Tai is down under in the Southern hemisphere for some R & R to recover from a bruising European season and his World Grand Prix commitments. He will head back to the UK in the new year, however while in Perth he gives of his time to perform in a couple of shows for his WA fans, much to our delight.

Tai set the Pinjar Park track on fire last January winning the RWC and the WA State Championship and was responsible for some of the largest crowds the new track has seen in its relatively short existence.

This is a great opportunity to see Tai Woffinden and his fellow British team mates perform, an opportunity we don't get to see often in Perth, and I urge you not to miss either of these two huge speedway meetings.

Sure enough. Instead of takign the SGP to a junior speedway venue in the outback of Queensland (Ipswich), this one in Perth would so much better.  I seem to remeber that Ole Olsen already had taken a look at this venue for the SGP several years ago?

I would be all for it, even though the spectators are quite far away from the Action, but Motorplex is a splendid sports venue, and Perth is a great town to visit.

It would make sense for the SGP to run not just one, but two, or even three rounds in Australasia. One on the West Coast and one on the East Coast of Australia and another one in New Zealand.
