Is it the end of the start/finish straight at Longford ?? it looks identical
I think we have a winner.
What a great track Longford was.... the Longford Flying Mile, it crosses a river, goes under a railway viaduct, and as I said in clues was the fastest average lap speed in Australia until F1 went to Albert Park. (Chris Amon in a Ferrari P4 average speed over 185 kph) Before anyone says what about the Thunderdome at Calder, that was an oval not a road track.
Actually Longford is said to have been the fastest road track in the South Pacific.
Hosted at least half a dozen WDC's ,Jack Brabham, Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Phil Hill, Denny Hulme and Jackie Stewart, plus other F1 notables too many to mention.
The first race meeting held at the track was in 1953, Two Australian Grand Prix's were also held in 1959 and 1965.
The Street circuit hosted rounds of the Tasman series from 1964 to 1968, also a one and only round of the Australian Touring Car Championship in 1962, The Australian tourist trophy was also held at the circuit in 1960, 1964 and 1966.
Australian Drivers Championship rounds were held at the circuit yearly from 1958 until 1965.
The Street circuit closed for the final time in 1968 after the running of the 1968 Tasman Series meeting.
If drivers broke down anywhere near the Kings Bridge or Longford Corner they would be welcomed at the adjacent Longford Hotel pub for a free beer!
