im lucky enough to have walked the track back in the days of the old police run street drags. it was well run down by then but still recognisable. the timber fences, it was crackerdust type surface then and would have been magic to have driven on it.

i have been lucky to have known a few people that have raced there over the years, one good friend in his 70's raced and won there and also there were tracks elsewhere, one roughly where pacific fair is now.

another good friend passed on now used to race in the 60's too and there were tracks at the brisbane exhibition ground, arthur park and a half mile track at greenbank?? (this might have been arthur park)

plenty of history with these old tracks, they get rid of them all and they wonder why the kids now terrorise the streets...

Ben, the half mile may have been Forrest Park?

I can recall one night in the early seventies, walking the whole length of the Surfers bitumen circuit whilst my Dad was racing a midget on the dirt track which was located in the middle of the circuit.

I should.
I started going to the Ekka in-vitro in the very early 60s.
My Dad raced midgets, stock cars and saloon cars at Arthur park, Forrest Park, Ipswich, Caboolture, Archerfield (the old one), Toowoomba as well as the Ekka and even the occasional foray to the Sydney showgrounds track.

You have been lucky there,good stories.I used live near and go to Liverpool Speedway quite often in the early and mid 70s and Castleraigh Drags as well.I agree young blokes these days haven't got what we had back then and they are out of control most of them.All houses now where the Speedway and Dragway once where??...
