The wheel­men of War­ragul

Old Bike Australasia - - BLOW YOUR OWN -

In re­la­tion to the three pho­tos on page 77 of OBA 71, I am en­clos­ing a photo (be­low) taken at a grass track meet­ing at War­ragul Showground­s. As you can see the grand­stand and starter’s box are very sim­i­lar to those shown. The last meet­ing here was in the early 1960s. There was a photo taken at this meet­ing which ap­peared on the front page of the lo­cal pa­per, The War­ragul Gazette. It showed the start line with John De­whurst, Alan Payn­ter, Peter Cas­tles and one other rider. Dave Barry Be­nalla Vic.
