INTRODUCING AN EXCITING NEW CONCEPT FOR
THE AUSTRALIAN SPEEDWAY COMMISSION INC.
Speedway fraternity is set to take back the decision making of their sport with the formation of the Australian Speedway Commission Incorporated. The Commission was incorporated in
Victoria in August this year. Throughout 2009/2010 Australian Speedway season, delegates from across
and from multiple classes identified the need for improved access to important safety, participation and sporting data.
It was realised that speedway, along with other sectors, held limited safety data and that speedway could establish best practice in Australian motor sports safety, if it chose.
Meetings held in
Melbourne during the year also further identified the need for additional safety information, which further emphasised the need to develop processes aimed at capturing and interrogating data for the good of the sport.
After discussions and review by the members of the Commission, it revealed
A high level of organisational competence already existed within many of the National and State bodies and organisations.
That clubs and organisations have the capacity and capability to organise and manage their sector’s licensing, registration, specifications, racing rules and regulations, insurance as well as conduct significant events such as National and State titles.
In recognition of that capability of the various classes and their administration, the apparent gap that needed to be filled was the need to share the sports important safety, economic and participation information with sporting bodies.
The role of the Australian
Speedway Commission was then recognised as one that should support the above and participate in important safety matters.
The meeting believed a National Body should be a small, transparent, honorary elected, not for profit organisation that would empower participants to manage the above sporting issues.
It was agreed that
An organisation such as the Australian
Speedway commission should focus on enabling ‘MORE PEOPLE TO PARCIPATE MORE OFTEN’.
That membership of the Australian
Speedway Commission will be open to ANY interested party or person.
ALL office bearers of the Australian
Speedway Commission will be honorary and be ELECTED by the MEMBERSHIP. ALL MEANS ALL.
Further NO person may hold office if they have a compromised financial interest.
Speedway Commission WILL be open and transparent to all interested parties.
Speedway Commission WILL be membership driven.
THE AIM OF THE AUSTRALIAN
PROVIDE LEADERSHIP AND SUPPORT, ON A NATIONAL BASIS, TO THE
SPEEDWAY FRATERNITY TO ENABLE MORE PEOPLE TO PARTICIPATE MORE OFTEN.
TO DEVELOP AN INDUSTRY PERFORMANCE REPORTING MODEL THAT MEASURES KEY ASPECTS OF THE SPORT OF
TO DEVELOP HIGH LEVEL RELATIONSHIPS WITH GOVERNMENTS AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR TO FURTHER RAISE THE PROFILE AND GOVERNANCE OF THE SPORT.
2010/11 Membership/Licences & Insurance Forms are now available from our Membership page.
SFI Foundation Teams Up with NDRA:
The National Dirt Racers Association (NDRA) have been invited by the SFI Foundation Inc (Specialty Equipment Marketing Association) to allow NDRA members to visit the site which is used on a basis to administer and issue the standards for specialty / performance automotive and racing equipment.
NDRA came onboard early this month and believes that the NDRA organisation is “for racers by racers” and their mission statement reads "managing speedway motor sport in Australia to the highest level of professionalism by devising, implementing and enforcing regulations set down by government and regulatory bodies that maintain the sport's integrity and to keep the sport fair, open and safe for competitors, pit crews and officials.”
The SFI Foundation is more than pleased with their recent agreement with the NDRA.
Having accepted the invitation, the NDRA will now be able to be updated with the current safety standards of the equipment used in Speedway, which will include helmets, neck braces etc.
SFI founded in 1963 and has been performing strongly since its opening. SFI operates a test laboratory and has an extensive list of approved racing apparel and equipment.
It produces a wide range of Quality Assurance Specifications for safety related motorsport products that form “accepted industry-wide standards” which have proven to assist in reducing accidents, injuries, fatalities and therefore insurance claims and litigation.
The Foundation is funded by companies, which voluntarily participate in the specification program, along with financial support from sanctioning member bodies. As a result of this support, SFI has developed several programs for almost eighty different products used by manufacturers, motor sport groups and consumers throughout the world.
Having helped so many people throughout the world with their safety enquires etc; NDRA just couldn’t decline the offer as safety is an extremely important part of any motor sport.
NDRA national secretary Anne Dicker is very excited about this new announcement.
“The SFI had asked us to come onboard with their company as a member so we would be able to keep up the with safety standards that are associated with Speedway and some other motorsports, its something that you just cant decline as racing equipment that we use to race with is extremely important,” she enthused.
“I recommend that any association involved in speedway should join with the SFI foundation as it is an extremely useful foundation and is a very important matter when it comes to safety in motorsport.”
