Dramatically increased insurance costs and the takeover of the governance of speedway by a business out to make a profit for shareholders saw many budget racers being forced out of their sport. Any thinking person could see that a monopoly would only lead to inflated prices and the only way to prevent that from happening was to not allow the sport to be dictated to by a monopoly. It was in this climate that the Australian Speedway Drivers and Riders Association was formed and they became incorporated on the fourteenth of January, 2005.
With the objective of keeping costs down, they have become a voice for the people in fighting against unfair trade practices and exclusive dealing wherever it has affected the sport of speedway.
