Here at Alexandra Speedway we are fully supportive and encouraging of juniors being involved in Speedway. Our club has one of the largest groups with approx. 30 juniors and, run VSC Juniors and SSA Juniors as club classes. This gives everyone a decent chance at plenty of race time.
Juniors run almost every race meet and being the family orientated club that we are, someone is always willing to help our juniors out with assistance or advice.
The SSA Juniors have an opportunity every year to join in the fun and prestige of our 100 Lap Derby weekend with the SSA Juniors Victorian Short Circuit Championship being one of the three events held.
The skills they can learn will last forever; it’s also a great way for the kids to mix with other kids. They will learn driving skills in a safe and controlled environment.
If you’re between the ages of 10 – 16 and would like to know more about getting into speedway, come out to one of our meets and have a chat or send us an enquiry via our contact page.
VSC Juniors in Action
SSA Juniors in Action
VSC Standard Saloon – Juniors
A Standard Saloon is basically a base model road car of at least 8 years of age. Strip out all the glass and anything flammable; add a roll cage and a few other safety features (specifications can be found at the VSC webpage) and you have a Standard Saloon. Popular cars for Standard Saloons are Falcons and Commodores.
The best thing about driving Standard Saloons is that the parents and juniors can share a car – parents can drive the same cars in the men’s and ladies divisions as the juniors in their class. Also, with the correct fitment of a passenger seat and providing all licensing/safety requirements are meet, a parent could passenger while the junior drives – this is the only junior class where this is allowed.
Standard Saloon Juniors is open to kids between 10 – 16 years of age in the 4 or 6 cylinder cars and 12 – 16 years of age in the 8 cylinder cars.
For more information regarding this class please feel free to contact us or the Victorian Speedway Council.
Alexandra also hosts a VSC Junior class in addition to Standard Saloons, which allows juniors to compete in any approved VSC car. For more information regarding this class please feel free to contact us or the Victorian Speedway Council.

These cars are restricted to 4 cylinder 1200 carbie engines and a 1600 injected engine.
