9th - 13th March 2009
Lake Gairdner Speed Trials - 2009

We welcome any new drivers and teams as well as spectators to partake in what is certainly a unique event in Australia. There's just 77 Days before the event.

The Dry Lake Racerrs of Australia have been conducting events at Lake Gairdner in South Central South Australia for 18 years, always working with and respecting indigenous issues and authorities concerns.

They just want to go fast, very, very, very fast, and break a few records all of Australia can be proud of!

The following link provides an introduction to the history of the Dry Lake Racers of Australia http://www.dlra.org.au/history01.htm

Dry Lake Racers of Australia - Letter to the Minister

The South Australian Department of Environment and Heritage (DEH) has given its conditional approval for the 2009 event. The condition is that there is agreement to the event from the relevant indigenous stakeholders. Ideally this would be in the form of an Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA).
DEH and representatives of the DLRA have been trying to get the indigenous stakeholders to a meeting for some time without any success. The DLRA committee has decided it is now at the stage where if we are to run an event next year this needs to happen now.

You can help! we encourage you to sign and post or email one of these letters (see info below) to the Minister (he holds both the Environment & Heritage and Aboriginal Affairs portfolios) or one of the other organisation contatc people listed below.

There are two proforma letters, one for members of the DLRA and one for supporters, spectators and enthusiasts of Dry Lakes Racing in Australia. Please use these letters and we implore you not to add abusive or threatening remarks to these letters. Feel free to pass these letters along to anyone wishing to support the DLRA and Dry Lakes Racing in Australia.
We are also requesting Port Augusta Council to support us by sending a letter them as well.
