Century for Mary­bor­ough

Old Bike Australasia - - BLOW YOUR OWN -

The Mary­bor­ough Mo­tor Cy­clists Club in Queens­land will be 100 years old in Septem­ber 2015. It was also one of the clubs that founded the ACU of Qld in 1924. Mil­dred Gold­smith has a gold medal­lion (above right) won by her fa­ther A. Lam­bert for the 100 Miles Road Trial in April 1916. It was made by lo­cal jew­eller T.J. Gillespie whose grand­son still runs the busi­ness. Club mem­bers have had a fair bit of suc­cess with Clar­rie Ste­wart win­ning the Aus­tralian 350cc Scram­bles Cham­pi­onship in 1957 and many dirt track, hill climb and road rac­ing ti­tles. The club has had about five dirt tracks over the years and in the late ‘60s founded our cur­rent track, Ac­tion Park, one of the fastest tracks in the coun­try.
