FORMULA 500s - WA Big Season Ahead!

With some massive work by our Liaison Officer Tegan Turacchio, the Formula 500’s Western Australia are today proud to release our 2019/20 season calendar!
Releasing the calendar early was of highest priority to the committee, aware that drivers and their teams need time to organize their schedules and get things in order to compete in as many of the eighteen nights of action as possible, which is why now, in July, we have our schedule ready to release!
Of those eighteen nights of action, this seasons schedule includes no less than ten scheduled West Coast Series rounds, six shows at the Perth Motorplex and the two night WA Title at Geraldton Speedway.
The season begins with a bang as we return to the Coalfields for round one of the West Coast Series at the Make Smoking History Collie Speedway. This was one of the best attended shows of last year and we expect more of the same to kick off the season long series at the venue on Saturday the 19th of October.
Next on the calendar is the opening two rounds of the Perth Motorplex season, on Saturday the 2nd and then Saturday the 23rd, of November. This will be followed by round two of the West Coast Series back at Collie on the 23rd of November, then round three at Margaret River Speedway on the 7th of December and round four at Narrogin Speedway on the 14th of December.
After a short break in local proceedings for the Australian Title at Simpson Speedway in Victoria, action heats up again in WA with two more shows at the Perth Motorplex on the 26th and 28th of December to round out 2019.
The first show of 2020 is scheduled to be a cracker, with the fifth round of the West Coast Series scheduled to be held on the 11th of January, with the track to be confirmed in coming weeks. At this stage it will be the only show in January to allow drivers to recoup after a big start to the season and it is worth noting this is the only part of the calendar not completely locked in. Further details on this date will be confirmed down the track.
Moora Speedway will then host round six of the West Coast Series on Saturday the 1st of February, while the series returns to Bunbury for the first time in a number of years on the 15th of February for round seven, acting as support to World Series Sprintcars.
After another show at the Perth Motorplex on Friday the 21st of February, drivers will make the journey up the highway to Geraldton Speedway for the two night WA Title extravaganza, which will be held across the Labour Day long weekend on Saturday 29th of February and Sunday 1st of March.
The final show at the Perth Motorplex will be next on the schedule on Saturday the 14th of March with the West Coast Series coming to a close with round eight to be held at Manjimup Speedway on the 21st of March, round nine on the 4th of April at Kalgoorlie Speedway and then the finale at Pithara Speedway on Saturday the 25th of April.
In total this schedule sees eighteen nights of action held at eleven different tracks, showing once again that the Formula 500’s are willing to travel and consistently put on good shows with tracks more than happy to have us return!
Looking at the competitor numbers and feedback received already, we are set for yet another huge season and we hope to once again put on a great show at every track we head to. Stay tuned for updates as we get closer to the season, but don’t forget to plan your Speedway calendar around all our events, because the pocket rockets certainly put on some huge action!
