The Coober Pedy Racing Club was started up in 1969 with the aim of bringing together town and station people – “to make new friendships and renew old ones”

Charley Kunoth, donated the land, for the racecourse. Charlie said, “I’m not going to let you fellows have this land for nothing. I want a cent a year for it.”

For some thirty-eight years the race meeting was held over the Labour Day long weekend in October, but, as this was almost always a time of very windy, hot weather, as well as clashing with the Oysterfest at Ceduna and other events in South Australia, in 2007 it was moved to early August.

Due to COVID-19 all bus tours have been cancelled for April and May. This will be updated at a later date.
