Red Dust Re­vival

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

From 12-16 Septem­ber, 2019, mo­tor­cy­cles and cars will con­verge on ‘Perko’, 25km from Kal­go­or­lie, the ring of red clay that first hosted mo­tor rac­ing in 1914 and closed in 1939. Perko is claimed to be the old­est cir­cuit in the world that is still in its orig­i­nal state. The track’s cen­te­nary was cel­e­brated in 2014. Just like in the old days, com­peti­tors and spec­ta­tors can camp at the track, and drink­ing wa­ter and toi­let fa­cil­i­ties will be pro­vided. The five-day cel­e­bra­tion will in­clude demon­stra­tion runs for Pre-war bikes and cars un­der the con­trol of Mo­tor­cy­cling WA and CAMS. For more in­for­ma­tion email Graeme Cocks or Greg East­wood at perko­lil­
