Boring, and even to the point easy, were some of the terms former World Motorcycle Champion Wayne Gardner has recently used to describe his time in the sport of speedway.

There is no bigger name in Tasmanian speedway history than Les Redpath! Totally Speedway’s Daniel Powell caught up with the living legend himself to talk to him about the past, the present and the future.

Making it in America as a 410 Sprintcar driver is certainly not an easy task. Totally Speedway’s Daniel Powell has interviewed five Australian drivers – Brooke Tatnell, Kerry Madsen, Skip Jackson, Lynton Jeffrey, and Peter Murphy – who have been there and done it.

Since the coronavirus outbreak, it’s been well publicised about James McFadden not being able to take up his 410 Sprintcar ride with the Kasey Kahne Racing team in America, and another Australian racer to be affected by the current situation is Australian Late Model Champion Kye Blight.

Upon last night’s news that the Global Racing team has closed its doors, Totally Speedway’s Daniel Powell has looked back over the team that left their mark on the 410 Sprintcar scene in such a short period.

Australian speedway has a long dark history of tracks that have closed, and Speedway Australia’s general manager Tim Savell is committed to making sure that tally doesn’t grow.
