VIC U21 Speedway Championships cancelled


The Victorian Under 21 Solo Speedway Championships scheduled for this weekend in Albury-Wodonga (9th February 2019) has been cancelled due to low entries.

It will be a month on Saturday (the 9th February) since the Albury-Wodonga Motorcycle Club held a successful Australian Solo Speedway round, round 4 of five of the series, however, the Victorian Championship did not attract rider numbers.

Statement from AWMCC published on their Facebook page –

AWMCC regretfully wishes to advise that the Victorian U21 Speedway Championships scheduled for Diamond Park this weekend has been cancelled. Unfortunately, only 7 entries were received for the event, and it is simply not feasible to run the championship with those numbers.

The club apologises to anyone who has been inconvenienced by this decision to cancel. AWMCC does not have any intention at this stage of attempting to run the event at a later date.”

Motorcycling Victoria announced “Albury-Wodonga Motorcycle Club has decided to cancel the U21 Speedway Championship scheduled for 9th February. This is due to insufficient entries to warrant the running of a state title. At this stage, this will not be rescheduled.”

Many Australian Solo Speedway athletes compete in Europe, so maybe a better time to have the State Championships would be in December or before the Australian Solo Speedway Championships or just after, this would attract international talent, however, it could also disadvantage local riders. The 2019 year is just getting underway and hopefully, the championship can be held later in the year, especially with 3 of the 5 rounds of the 2019 Australian Solo Speedway Championships being held in Victoria.
