[/expand] Access to the Track ?
Cranes Combined Carrick Speedway is surrounded by facilities used for the pacing club, including trotting tracks that circle the complex. While we understand parking can be difficult on the big shows, under no circumstances are vehicles allowed to drive on or park on the trotting tracks, as they are causing significant damage to the surface. The overflow car park has been marked out in green, and any vehicle found to be parking in the red zone will be asked to move, or if fails to do so, may be towed.
There will be security on site to ensure parking is only in the permitted areas, so please obey all requests from security and enjoy the racing.Where do I park?
The complex is now fully enclosed, so instead of paying as you drive in and then parking, you now park and enter through one of two pedestrian gates.
The gates are located behind the main control tower, and next to the Geoff Stagg Grandstand on the back straight. The car park caters for approximately 500 vehicles and parking is free.
Disabled parking has been moved to two areas, one behind the Geoff Stagg Grandstand and the other near the control tower ticket box.
The issue of smoking on the banks has been a problem since the Government implemented the regulations.
These are not Carrick Speedway rules but Tasmanian Government Legislation that we are required, as a facility who has the public enter, to enforce the legislation.
As the signage states, there is no smoking within 20 metres of the competition area which in our case is the track and also within 20 metres of seating area – spectators.
That means all smokers need to move off the spectator banks to the designated smoking areas Please use the buckets provided to dispose of cigarette butts.
Should the meeting proceed and be weather affected the following rainout policy applies.
A RAINOUT IS DEFINED AS EIGHT (8) EVENTS OR LESS BEING SUCCESSFULLY DECLARED COMPLETED.
In the event of a declared rainout, Cranes Combined Carrick Speedway will honour rainchecks, but will not refund money – no exceptions.
Your numbered ticket stub / Email confirmation is your raincheck. Hold all original tickets. No replacements will be given for lost, or tampered tickets.
Rainchecks will be honoured at any one (1) event (of equal or lesser value, not higher priced) at Cranes Combined Carrick Speedway in the same racing season. Not transferable to future seasons.
Should the meeting be cancelled due to rain after the Eighth event has been completed the meeting will be declared as run and there will be no rain checks or refunds.
Choose an “equal or lesser priced” event, from our current season calendar. Present your ticket / Email confirmation to the cashier. The cashier will check your numbered ticket stub for validity. If valid, you will be provided with a new ticket.
Yes, pit tickets are available to purchase from the Pit Office. Competitors entering the track go straight to the pit office and complete their entry into the track and pits at the same time. Driver Pit Entry is $10.00
Carrick Speedway will only accept Electronic One Day Driver Licences up to 5pm the day prior to racing. It is your responsibility to ensure you have the appropriate documents for the division you will be racing with.
We understand the inconvenience of small children being at the track when parents are racing but under no circumstances must any child enter the pits in a vehicle. We have had occasions were children are hidden in transporters taken into the pits, then need to gain access to the spectator banks. This will be not be taken lightly and there will be severe consequences for those drivers involved.
