The Red Dust Re­vival

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

Lake Perko­lilli, 23km from Kal­go­or­lie and 640km from Perth, first hosted motor rac­ing in 1914 in the most un­likely lo­ca­tion for such pas­times. Re­mote as it was (and is) the meet­ings held from 1914 to 1939 drew big crowds, and a grand­stand was con­structed in the ‘thir­ties, trans­ported from the Cool­gar­die Race­course by camel train. In 2014, the cen­te­nary of the cir­cuit was cel­e­brated and it proved so pop­u­lar that a re­turn is sched­uled for Septem­ber 12-16, 2019, open to any pre-1940 car or mo­tor­cy­cle.
