Event Details

Come along with Thornleigh Car Club for a full day social drive as we travel to sites of over half a dozen long lost speedway venues of Sydney. Do you know where the Place of Pace is? Or the possible birthplace of Fender Benders in Australia? Did you know that the Speedway by the Freeway was originally operating back in the 1930’s? Do you like the speedway and have an interest in Australian motorsport history? Well this is the event for you. You will get to walk around one of the tracks and see what is left or remember where other tracks once were. There are a few of the more famous speedway venues on this tour, along with many that you may have never known even existed! This is a fully route charted event making it a very relaxing day for everyone. Stick around for the optional night at Valvoline Raceway (Development Sprintcars, Roof Off Rumble Late Models, Wingless Sprints and Legend Cars) to finish off this event.

All participants, 16 years or older, attending Valvoline Raceway at the end of the Drive Down Memory Lane Speedway Edition event* will go into the draw to win a 2 seater sprintcar ride gift voucher valued at $500. This includes 5 hot laps with Robbie Farr, signed photograph, bbq lunch and guests are free to watch.

We have included many different options for the event to suit everyone’s budget…. So be there or be square!
