One of the men synonymous with the introduction of RC speedway racing to WA, Les Blechynden's passion for the sport is infectious. Back in the 1990's Les set out to create a radio-controlled, 1/4 scale Sprintcar and with the help
of some enthusiasts on the east coast he completed his project. A new form in dirt track racing was born. Les was a strong force behind the creation of the West Oz Association in Waroona and then lead the search for suitable land in the metro area to relocate
to the current headquarters of the WOQSSA in Henderson. Over the next decade Les and the committee proceeded to built the venue to what it is today, the best RC speedway venue in the country and arguably across the globe.
Les is not bad behind
the controller either, adding a National Sedan title and triple State titles to his trophy cabinet.
For the 'Decade at Hendo' celebrations in 2016, the new clubroom was named after Les for his dedication and commitment to the Association.
was awarded Life Membership in 2011.
