Visit Western Speedway Hamilton with Snapperific Photography
At Taking Speedway, we have a passion for the small Speedway Tracks and their committed competitors and fans across the Country.
With so many high-profile meetings featuring all the very best Teams and drivers on offer across the Nation we take the time to recognize these small but very vital venues and their fiercely competitive dirk track warriors.
Last Saturday our contributing photographer Steve Walters from Snappertrific Photographic took the 1 and half hour drive from Mount Gambier South Australia to the Western Speedway at Hamilton in South Western Victoria to share with you some shots of the Victorian Limited Sportsman Championship
Hamilton a Town with great heritage with the Speedway dating back some 49years. Hamilton was the site of the first Ansett Airlines flight in 1936 and not far out of Hamilton former Australian Prime Minister Malcom Frazer lived at the Nareen Station.
But to the now! The Victorian Limited Sportsman Title was decided on Saturday night before a Country crowd eager for some fast racing from the privately funded, hardworking Teams.
We often say these Country Tracks are the birthplace of our Sport and many of these guys and girls will hopefully someday be household names in Australian Speedway. The Champions must rise from somewhere and that somewhere is more than likely a Country Speedway
Steve Walters has sent us a range of shots from inside the track featuring many of the Limited Sportsman as they chased the Victorian Championship. The defending Champion on the night was Clint Baker but unfortunately, he was unable to go back to back when Lindsay Trotter took the honors and held the Championship trophy high over his head.
