Illabo Motorsport Park, Press Releases

CANCELLED: March 28, 2020 Speedway Event @ Illabo Motorsport Park

To all concerned,

On behalf of our of Gasworks Motorsport Inc Committee, it is with regret that we have to inform you that due to the unprecedented circumstances of the COVID 19 Virus that we have taken the decision to cancel the Vintage Speedcar and Speedway Sedan event scheduled for March 28, 2020.

We have been monitoring the situation very closely over the past weeks assessing the risks involved are minimised and to ensure the welfare of all concerned as part of our statutory obligation to “Duty of Care”.

It has become obvious that as the situation is slowly unravelling and as each day passes we see more movement and event gathering restrictions imposed.

In light of these developments the decision has in effect been taken out of our hands with the Government, and in particular the Chief Medical Officer, recommending restrictions on current gathering and movements etc.

To be fair to everyone we needed to make the decision as early as possible to minimize expenses incurred and for those inter & intra-state participants, the exposure to additional costs from cancellations of travel and accommodation bookings, along with the potential contagiousness of the COVID 19 Virus.

We apologize for any inconvenience from this decision.

However,if there is a glimmer of hope in these developments, at this point our next Vintage Speedway meeting on the 9th May is still scheduled to take place.

For updates please check on our website,, and our Facebook pages.
