Vale John ‘Jack’ Brittain
1925-2022

The Premier Speedway Club Management, board and members would like to express our sincere condolences on the passing of Jack Brittain.

Jack was a founding member of the Premier Speedway Club (initially Warrnambool Hot Rod Club). He was also the founding President, a position he served consecutively for eight years from 1958-1966.

A life member of Premier Speedway Club, Jack still regularly attended the venue across the years, right through until last season.

Jack was also a fierce competitor in his eight-cylinder Oldsmobile dubbed ‘Tiny Tot’. He remained involved in the sport, performing the role of Chief Steward and was heavily involved at the time when Premier Speedway moved from the racecourse to the current Allansford site.

Thank you Jack for your contribution to the Premier Speedway Club. Our thoughts are with the Brittain family.
