Our good mate and Speedway Lensman Virtuoso Peter Roebuck is great at staying out of trouble – That’s because he loves his Speedway, and at every opportunity he sniffs out a race or a special Speedway Event – It literally keeps him off the streets !!!!
Last Sunday (13th August) Peter went along to the stunning Gloucester Park Harness Racing Facility in West Perth WA.
Here Peter saw a different form of horsepower compared to what normally graces the venue – On display under the cover of the grandstand was a magnificent array of Speedway machines from yesteryear, ranging from bikes to TQ’s to Formula 500’s to Speedcars to tin tops to Supermodifieds to Sprintcars — All classes were all there, proudly on display in their livery from years gone by.
There was also a heap of former riders and drivers in attendance to swap stories and chat about the sport we love so much and where its roots came from in WA.
They were and still are Champions and showcasing their machines made a very special and memorable day.
Here’s some photos for you viewing pleasure – thanks Peter! ….and congrats mate on yet another award !! :
