Indige­nous Speed­way

Can any­one help NSW Vin­tage Club stal­wart LAU­RIE DELLER with this query? “Does any­one know the name or have in­for­ma­tion on an Abo­rig­i­nal Speed­way rider who raced in the late 1940s through to the early 1950s. He lived in Pen­nant Street East Par­ra­matta op­po­site Col­let Park near Vic­to­ria Road. I re­mem­ber be­ing out the front of his home as a young lad who had an in­tro­duc­tion to speed­way at a very early age, and watch­ing him ride his JAP from the back­yard along a grassed area at the side of the house to the front yard, gen­er­at­ing a lot of noise in a con­fined space be­tween house and fence. I don’t think his neigh­bours would have ap­pre­ci­ated it as he was giv­ing it heaps, but it was mu­sic to my ears. I also re­mem­ber see­ing him in ac­tion, pas­sen­ger­ing in side­cars at Cum­ber­land Oval, Par­ra­matta.” Lau­rie can be reached at 11 Holmes Av­enue, Oat­lands NSW 2117 or on (02) 9638 4261.
