Display and Presentation Day at Corrigin Saturday 14th April, 2012
Restoration of Walden Park Speedway
If you would like to see the traditional speedway divisions racing again at Walden Park in the future, come to the Cyril Box Pavilion, Corrigin Sport and Recreation Centre, Larke Crescent, Corrigin on Saturday April 14th, 2012 and support the Australian Speedway Drivers and Riders Association Incorporated in their efforts to
make it happen.
ASDRA are a non-profit organisation dedicated to making the sport of speedway racing affordable and accessible to more people. Our aim is to restore Walden Park Speedway in Corrigin to its former glory with some of the familiar divisions of the past included in the programs.
ASDRA believe that the reintroduction of speedway can benefit the town of Corrigin and surrounding Shires and districts in many ways so come along and lend your support to the project. There will be plenty of opportunities for you to become involved in the restoration and later on in the running of the venue whether it be as a support volunteer, official, spectator or competitor.
Cars and bikes from different speedway divisions will be on display in the car park of the Sport & Recreation Centre in Larke Crescent, Corrigin. Vehicles from Narrogin Speedway and more from the Perth area will be shown , with West Coast Speedcars, Motorcycling WA and the Vintage Cars also represented.
Meet the drivers of these fantastic vehicles, enjoy the sausage sizzle and learn what is being planned for the restoration of the track and buildings, and the future of Walden Park Speedway.
