Would love to see the Hume wier raceway brought back to life I wish I had money to do it we need something like that around here again it would be great to bring back history plus there isn't much more out there than what there was so I don't see why it would be a problem to do . Any one else interested

The land on which the former Hume Weir Race circuit was on, is now all privately owned, they object to people entering their property looking and there is no possibility of the track being there again. There is ongoing concern of the effects of vibration on the Hume Weir Wall from passing traffic and that occured from the Race track at that time. As you are aware of, no vehicle traffic now crosses along the dam wall as it once, once again vibration is the concern.

Doesn't sound feasible that vibrations from cars of any type could in any way damage the weir,spillway or earthen wall.I'd say Bob Jane just lost interest in his baby and pulled the pin.He was a hot-tempered man, someone must have rattled his cage.

Funny, I spent some time on our simulators cutting some laps of that circuit a few weeks ago.

Cheers,

Webber
