The track was first opened in 1976 and was the brainchild of two brothers who had the dream to open a raceway for speed lovers. The brothers, Norm and Doug Brew, were popular race drivers back then. Over the years, the Drew family has continued to work on and maintain the tracks so that today, Avalon Raceway hosts national events which draw large numbers of people. The track, which is founded on clay Sand Mix, has an oval shape and spans a length of 390 metres.

Typically, a visit to the raceway will happen when events are on. Look out for the Sprintcar Racing events which bring race-lovers from across the country. Some of the most popular events held at the Avalon Raceway include the West Coast Classic, Super Rods, Great Southern Showdown Sprintcars and K-Rock Cup Super Sedans.

Avalon Raceway has grown to be one of Victoria’s choice speedway complexes. The raceway is located on 210 Old Melbourne Road, Lara Victoria. Parking is available on location. Get on M1 from Queen Street in the CBD and drive on to Beach Road in Avalon. Take the exit to Avalon Airport and continue on Beach Road to Old Melbourne Road, Lara.
