Sunday 28th September was Scrutineering Day for the VCSC. The location was MotoSign in Kilsyth and joining the VCSC were some vintage speedway cars from the Victorian Classic & Vintage Speedway Club. This made an excellent opportunity for many passers-by to call in and admire both new and old speedway machinery.

Club President Michael Dickson was elated with the turnout.
“It’s great to have so many of our members presenting their cars for scrutineering. We have scrutineered 14 cars today and there are at least another 4 cars which are planning on coming racing this season which are yet to be scrutineered. How awesome is it to have the Vintage Cars here on display as well!”
A great display of Vintage Speedway Machinery was enjoyed by all who were in attendance
Vice President Andrew Lardner was also excited about the upcoming season.
“It’s looking like being a great season for the club. This year we are hosting the Australian Title at Rushworth (Saturday 2 May 2015), the Curren Memorial and the Cardwell Cup will also feature and we are racing the 43rd Victorian Compact Speedcar Title. We have some new drivers coming in, including Matt Noakes, Jack Day and William Vanderane is driving Robin Crawford’s #18. Warren Gravina, Jason Crawford and Ian Jones have their cars ready to go and Justin Paull’s car has had a complete rebuild.”
Chief Scrutineer Dwayne Tournier was impressed with the cars.
“We had no major problems today. Everyone has done a great job in getting their cars race ready.”

It was a great day for everyone to have a catch up over a BBQ and drinks, discuss the upcoming season and admire the vintage speedway machinery on display. It was also great to see many club Life Members and some former drivers pop in and say ‘G’day.’
