The Na­tional Mo­tor Raci­ing Mu­seum

Your com­pul­sory pit stop at Bathurst

Old Bike Australasia - - CONTENTS -

No visit to Mount Panorama is com­plete with­out a stop at the Na­tional Mo­tor Rac­ing Mu­seum, right be­side the track at Mur­ray’s Cor­ner. In­side you’ll find a con­stantly-chang­ing ar­ray of ve­hi­cles that have made their mark on not only Mount Panorama, but Aus­tralian mo­tor­sport in gen­eral. The main hall is packed with not just tour­ing cars, but open-wheel­ers, mo­tor­cy­cles and all sorts of fas­ci­nat­ing mem­o­ra­bilia - tro­phies, driv­ing suits, leathers, hel­mets, posters and pho­to­graphs. Take a break in the 40-seat theatrette and watch the videos cov­er­ing the glo­ri­ous his­tory of rac­ing on Mount Panorama since 1938, and the just-re­leased ver­sion on the his­tory of mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing at the track. En­joy a cof­fee and check out the mu­seum shop. It’s packed with of­fi­cial team mer­chan­dise, books, video and col­lecta­bles. Nat­u­rally, any visit to Mount Panorama is not com­plete with­out a spin around the fa­mous cir­cuit it­self - just re­mem­ber to obey the 60 km/h speed limit! Bathurst is just two and a half hour’s drive from Syd­ney, so there’s no need to wait un­til the next race meet­ing - make it a mem­o­rable day trip any time. The whole fam­ily will love the ex­pe­ri­ence.
