The Speedway said in a statement that the Hepburn Shire Council made the decision to withdraw leases for race meetings.

“The club will continue to work with the Hepburn Shire and all other relevant organisations to be able to hold race meetings in the future.”

The Speedway is the oldest running speedway dirt track in the state.
