THE VR TRADITION CONTINUES THIS SATURDAY NIGHT

FORTY-TWO years on and still going strong! That’s the incredible legacy Valvoline Raceway enjoys – a venue that is so deeply entrenched in Australian Speedway history.

It’s the start of another season at the historic Sydney western suburbs track which now takes the mantle of one of the longest running circuits in Australia.

It’s a justifiably proud honour.

Remarkable to think back over the four decades and when the Parramatta track commenced, inner-city traditional venues like the Sydney Showground, Perth’s Claremont Speedway, Adelaide’s Rowley Park and the Brisbane Exhibition Ground were the benchmarks and institutions in our sport.

They’ve all since been lost in an era of change, but Valvoline Raceway is still delivering the racing product that keeps the fans coming back for more – and rightly so!!!

Speedway in Sydney has been a way of life and sporting tradition for many since the 20s. The new season also represents the start of another chapter in the incredible history of the sport in Australia’s biggest capital city.

While the VR track has had several name changes over the years, one factor that will always remain the same is the high calibre of superb racing.

It has been that way since opening night way back in February, 1977.

There is so much to like about the upcoming season which commences this Saturday, September 21 with the running of the Lord Mayor’s Sprintcar Cup, supported with Speedcar and Late Model Sedan racing, Fender Benders, a Demolition Derby, and huge Fireworks Sky Show.

In keeping with the significance of the occasion, Parramatta Lord Mayor Andrew Wilson will be in attendance to officially open the 2019-20 season at Valvoline Raceway.

Also on hand will be the Reverend Keith Hamilton from Parramatta Mission.

Again this season Valvoline Raceway has joined forces with the Parramatta Mission’s “Race to Drive Out Hunger” campaign with food donations to help the needy and homeless in western Sydney. Race fans are urged to bring canned food donations on race night for this very worthy cause.

Valvoline Raceway also welcomes on opening night the Monster Energy Ambassador Team. Monster Energy personnel will be distributing free samples of their energy drink product in the pit area from 3PM, and later in the public admission area from 5PM.
