I guess, start by asking questions, and I can help you from there. Start small and work your way up. What are your goals?

Well, firstly how did you go about organising a track? I'm thinking of using a local netball/tennis court in the area.
Second how did the organising of races come about?

from what i heard;

* first you have to work out where you want to race
* get permission to race there
* get public liability insurance - different areas cost are varied
* you will need a bank account and ABN number to input monies into
* register a club name through i thing dept. of fair trading
* take details to place you want to set track up, show them you are a club and want to use area. they may or may not charge you - depends how nice you are

* then after all that, start advertising

thats about all i know, best thing to do would be go to different tracks and speak to the organisers. try castle hill indoor electric - trevor johnston (i think thats how you spell it) he should give you plenty of info.
