1950s, Mt Druitt race track. My Dad was there......


In the 1950s my Dad attended the bike races at the old Mt Druitt circuit. The circuit was used from 1948 to 1958. Spectator attendance often exceeding 15,000 and was believed to be one of the best motor racing circuits in the country. The course was 3.6 kms long and situated on what is now Whalan Reserve, the Mt Druitt Industrial Area and Madang Avenue Primary School. NSW. Australia.

My Dad took these photos.

If you know who the riders are please let me know.

  1. I don't know any of the riders. But I am looking for pictures of Ron Toombs who raced his 350cc BSA at the circuit from about 1955 to 1958. His number was 111. Do you have any shots of him. I do know people who may be able to help if we could get a clearer picture of their number.
