For the first time in the WA Sporting Club’s chequered 90-year history no spectators are permitted to attend its return to racing for 2020 this weekend. Entry to Wanneroo Raceway on Sunday is restricted to drivers and one crew member, race officials and essential staff.

The customary trophy presentations and drinks at the circuit’s McCrackan House following the day’s racing will not be held.

So may I wish all competitors, crew members, officials and staff a safe and enjoyable day! At least the forecast for Sunday looks great for racing, after this week’s late start to winter!

The good old days!

What some of you may not know is that the WASCC is the longest established motor racing club in Australia. It sports a proud history of organising circuit races and many other events in Western Australia – first at Caversham, then at Wanneroo Park.

It was formed in 1929.

In 1973 the WASCC held its first Australian Touring Car Championship event precursor of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship – at the renamed Wanneroo Raceway. The event was won by the legendary Alan Moffat in his Falcon GTHO.

At this stage, the Supercars are scheduled to return to Wanneroo October 31-November 1.

Last year the club celebrated its 50th year at Wanneroo Raceway.
