SDAV Hot Rods

SDAV Hot Rods have been involved in speedway racing for over 50 years and continually evolve as an exciting Speedway Class. An increasing number of young drivers are part of the Class as it offers an affordable entry level into high speed, action packed, open wheel, dirt track racing.

The Club has had a fascinating history in the early years; over 30 Hot Rods would compete to qualify for the Final. After a period of lean times, the Club is now growing in numbers again, which makes this an exciting time to be involved with the Club.

The Hot Rod Club is a very welcoming, friendly group, that has a happy, family orientated atmosphere. Of course, when the drivers are on the track they all want to win but once in the pit area they all help one another to stay on the track to ensure best numbers possible for each race. After almost every race meeting they enjoy one another’s company with a BBQ.

There has been some very successful drivers who had their roots in this Hot Rod Class while developing skills i.e.: Ray “Nippa” Lacey and Graeme McCubbin.
