Murray Machining & Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway’s 2020/2021 Season will officially kick off in October after a slight delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Racing will then kick-off 2 weeks later with our re-scheduled opening night.
Racing divisions to be announced. General admission tickets will be released prior to each event.
*All dates are subject to COVID restrictions not being re-introduced in the meantime*
At this stage, we then plan to re-assess the current situation by the end of November, where we will work towards determining our racing schedule for January, February & March 2021, and whether it will be viable to resume holding our larger format events involving interstate competitors - pending border restrictions: eg. USC Pink Night/World Record Demo Derby Attempt/and Australian Titles among others. Further re-assessment will then be made in mid-February for our April 2021 dates.
Due to Federal and State Government guidelines, our venue will be capped at 1000 spectators for the time-being, with the pit area completely segregated for the entirety of each event to ensure the safety and well being of all.
Further information will be released regarding ticket release dates, pricing and gate opening times, but tickets to all events will need to be purchased online via our ticketing website: www.speedwaytickets.com.au. Given the present situation, this measure is the best method which will enable us to collate contact details to meet contact tracing requirements.
Once restrictions have been lifted, we anticipate that we will be able to return to our pre-Covid procedures.
Many thanks also goes to the Murray Bridge Sporting Car Club & Motorcycle Club, Speedway Committee and our volunteers for their efforts in working with us to devise this plan to navigate through this COVID period. We also greatly appreciate all of the effort they have put in around the venue and track to get it ready in time for our first meeting.
And lastly, we thank you, our supporters for your understanding and co-operation during these unprecedented times and look forward to having you back at MMS very soon!
