VALE CLEM SMITH
Queensland Raceways wishes to acknowledge the life of Clement (Clem) Smith. A man who dedicated his life to the betterment of South Australian Motorsport through his beloved Mallala race circuit.  Clem passed away just a week after his 90th birthday.   

Clem purchased the Mallala circuit in 1977 off property developer Keith Williams and fought Williams in a court battle to lift a caveat on the course title that meant it could not be used for motor racing as Williams had just built Adelaide International Raceway.   
He continued with Mallala after it had the V8 Supercars taken off it and replaced with the Clipsal 500.  

Glen Dix, a close family friend, spoke at the funeral about Clem's and his first ever race. 

“I saw Clem race his first car (Terraplane single-seater) down at Sellicks Beach in the early 1950’s and I was at Port Wakefield for his next race when the car had its mudguards removed,”  

“I, along with many other people, realise and appreciate just how much Clem has done for motorsport in this state." 

Clem was awarded the OAM (Order of Australian Medal) for his services to South Australian Motorsport.   

Queensland Raceways CEO John Tetley and Competition Manager Matthew Ronke travelled to Adelaide for the Funeral to pay their respects.  

Clem also held a holiday home a Noosa and was a regular visitor to Lakeside he lasted visited Lakeside in August 2015.   

On Behalf of the whole Queensland Raceways Family, we extended our condolences to Heide and Clem's Family.
