See the official jamboree press release below for full details -
Jamboree Australia Pty Ltd and Swan Hill Dragway have both agreed today, that the Melbourne Jamboree at Swan Hill Dragway on November 16/17 will not go ahead.
This is due to the racing surface of the track continuing to show movement and this is due to expansion and contraction of the asphalt at the high speed end of the 401m racing distance.
This expansion and contraction of the surface can lead to variations in the track levels that are not conducive to high speed race cars at the fastest part of the race track.
The Swan Hill City Council must be commended for their dedication and commitment to rectify this issue. Jamboree Australia Pty and Swan Hill Dragway both support their efforts and know that they will get this situation corrected in the short to medium term.
Jamboree Australia would like to Thank Swan Hill Dragway & Swan Hill City Council for their continued support of the sport in Victoria and our events!
Jamboree Australia Pty Ltd will provide refunds to Ticket Holders and the Entrants who have already committed to attend or race at the event.
Jamboree Australia Pty Ltd and Swan Hill Dragway apologise for any inconvenience caused due to this announcement..
