Levin and Lake­side

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

Con­grats on an­other bril­liant is­sue and the Levin ar­ti­cle by Bill Eales. I lived in Levin for 20 years and served on the Levin Mo­tor Rac­ing Club com­mit­tee and was rapt to see Bill’s well doc­u­mented and writ­ten ar­ti­cle; spe­cial thanks to him. Over the past 20 years I have been cre­at­ing a data­base con­sol­i­dat­ing re­sults via pro­grammes, news­pa­per cut­tings and any source that is avail­able and have done NZ from 1905 to 1995 at present. I am do­ing Aus­tralia, mainly Na­tional cham­pi­onships but my pet area is Lake­side as I live 1.5km from there and like Levin was closed. I was keen to see Lake­side re­open but share the dis­ap­point­ment of the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion over noise lev­els and hope and pray it isn’t the end of this icon, which would be very sad to see af­ter all the ef­fort to res­ur­rect the track. I have a data­base started for Aus­tralia which in­cludes Lake­side. I got a lot of mo­tor­cy­cle data off Ian Mil­ton. I have a web­site: www.cab­bage­treecorner­me­dia.com on Google and Face­book which has a lot of Levin pics, his­tory etc and when I saw your ar­ti­cle I did a post show­ing the cover of OBA. A lot was writ­ten about car rac­ing but mo­tor­cy­cling not much and Bill’s ar­ti­cle cov­ers it well. John Climo Bris­bane, Qld.
