The Kings Challenge

The annual King's Challenge at Borderline Speedway was conceived in 1995 after the very successful City of Mount Gambier Australian Sprint-Car Championship.

The Borderline Speedway club saw the need of a major club event; hence the King’s Challenge was born. The King’s Challenge was originally a two night event. With the Grand Annual Sprint-Car Classic also being a two night event at the time (Four consecutive nights of racing)

With pressure on the teams to race 4 nights straight, the Borderline Speedway Club decided to put the King’s Challenge back to a one night event. The King’s Challenge had been traditionally been on the Friday before the Classic in Warrnambool. In 2014 the Borderline Speedway club moved the King’s Challenge from a Friday to a Thursday night to accommodate the expansion of the now 3 night Grand Annual Sprint-Car Classic.

The King’s Challenge is a $10,000 to win event, attracting big names from Australia and the United States of America. With an ever growing car count and every year the racing getting more exciting, The Kings Challenge is a race you will not want to miss.
