Murray Bridge Speedway History.
The speedway itself is part of the history of Murray Bridge. Established in 1958 by a group of local business men who needed a venue to do what they love the most. The venue is in its 58th year of operation in 2016 and has been owned and operated by the Murray Bridge Sporting Car Club and Motorcycle Club Inc. since 1962. During this time, the speedway has hosted many state and national championships and the FIM World Sidecar Championship in 2011. On average 2 national titles are held every year along with numerous other national series rounds.
On May 1st 2016 a new chapter begun when the leasehold was sold to prominent East Coast promotion team Made Too Go Pty Ltd who also promotes both Valvoline Raceway (Sydney Speedway) and Hi-Tec Oils Speedway (Toowoomba). Made Too Go is wholly owned by prominent businessperson and Sprintcar team owner, Mr Barry Waldron. Mr Waldron enticed former Parramatta City Raceway managing director Mr Steven Green to take the reins and lead the promotion in to a new exciting era.
