2024 Weeks of Speed

28 February, 2024

Gunnedah Shire Council is proud to support Weeks of Speed which begins on Saturday March 2.

The popular motorsport festival during the month of March is run by representatives of volunteer groups who utilise Council and commercial facilities to stage various activities including drag races, a hot rod display, motorkhana, whip cracking titles and a country music muster.

Mayor Jamie Chaffey encouraged the community to get behind this annual event and wished organisers the best of luck for a successful festival.

“Every year, the heartbeat of Gunnedah Shire picks up the pace for the Weeks of Speed,” Cr Chaffey said.

“This action-packed program combines an impressive line-up of events, from the Community Street Parade, Show ‘n’ Shine, Hot Rod Display, Parade Fly-over and Speedway Racing on the opening day of Saturday, March 2, to the Billy Boiling Championships, the Gunnedah Country Music Muster, the Drag-ens Safari, Motorkhana and the Rural Museum Demonstration Day, this is truly a month with something for everyone.

“We welcome the visitors who will attend this year’s Gunnedah Weeks of Speed and all the competitors. And we encourage our local community to take a look at just how much the Weeks of Speed has to offer.

“We live in a beautiful place and we are more than happy to show it off to all our visitors.

“I congratulate the committee on their work in bringing the program to life. Without the committee and the many, many volunteers of the organisations involved, this program of events would not happen.”
