About Latrobe Speedway
The Latrobe speedway was founded over 40 years ago and has operated on a continuous basis since then. It has undergone several major face lifts including being a paved raceway to its current surface type of clay. It is currently operated by a board of eight directors, some of whom were founding Board members.
Latrobe has staged Australian Titles for most speedway divisions and is responsible for establishing Australia's richest super sedan event the Bendigo Bank Arena Grand Prix which now has blue ribbon status.
The track is 440 meters (0.27 miles) long at the pole line and has a clay surface which is extremely friendly to race tyres. The track is D shaped with minor banking in each of the turns. It has a concrete safety fence as well as a state of the art safety catchment fence.
The crowd capacity of the venue is over 6000.
