Where do I park?
Once you come through the main gates you will enter the Speedway car park. It caters for approximately 500 vehicles. Parking is free.

An admission ticket allows access to all banks and grandstand seating. There is no reserved seating.

Patrons may bring their own food items to the venue.

No. Cranes Combined Carrick Speedway is an alcohol free venue.

 

What type of food and drink is available?
The track has food and drink outlets serving hot food such as hamburgers, hot chips, pies, hot dogs, lattes and cappuccinos, etc. A selection of cold drinks from the Schweppes range is available.

 

Where is smoking allowed?

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 (7). Please use the buckets provided to dispose of cigarette butts.

 

Where do I purchase tickets?
It is preferable that Tickets are pre purchased online to speed up access, however tickets will still be available at the front General Admission gates on race nights. EFTPOS facilities are available at the gate.
