Whippet racing is back for 2021

As of April 2021 the WRCV has a new track!  And what a great track it is.  A 350m straight line down the grass at Lang Lang.

The track is ideal for our little pointy noses and the facilities are perfect for a great family day out.  There is a nice covered area with views of the whole track where you can watch the whippies from start to finish.  If the weather is fine you can use the outdoor area which has park benches overlooking the track.

The track has a casual country feel and we have it all to our selves on race days.  There is a large fenced area around the track where our pups can have an off-lead run and where we can organise other activities.

Starting is by hand slipping at this stage, although we might be able to use our boxes later in the year.  The maximum distance is 350m and we will try out different lengths as we get used to the track.  There is a catching pen at the end of the straight where a gate is closed behind the racers so they can be put on leads.  Beside the catching pen is a covered area with storage cages where your whippies can be safely held until you come and get them.

You can see some photos of the track and surrounds on our Facbook page.

We are working on our event calendar for the rest of this year and we will update you as soon as we have locked in some dates.

So it’s time to get your pointy noses down to the gym so they’re ready for some racing at Lang Lang!

Pointy nose fun

The WRCV provides whippet lovers a fun, social and family friendly environment to race their dogs. We hold both competitive and fun races. Competitive races have points awarded for end of season trophies. Fun races are for beginner whippets and other sighthounds who just want to run for fun.

Come and join us

We hold race meets monthly from February to November at the Lang Lang Coursing Club track at the Lang Lang public reserve and we’d love to see you there.

We welcome all whippets and sight hounds and if it’s your first time you can join in the fun races for a gold coin donation.

Roll out a picnic blanket or bring your deck chairs and watch them run.  Don’t forget to enter into the WRCV raffle to win some lovely prizes.
