Latest post of the previous page:

Actually, I don't think this track ever hosted an official Tasman race, at least according to what I can find at oldracingcars. But you're very close.

I was going to say Baskerville, but that is still used for special events.

Well my next guess is Hume Weir on that basis..... :wink: It has that quarry look to it. (It was built in a quarry) Originally opened as a an unsealed gravel track in 1959. Tarmac was put down in the very early sixties. Closed c1980 when it was discovered the ground near the Weir / Dam needed strengthening to avoid it slipping away.

The roadway and the entry gate to the pit area still remains (certainly a couple of years ago) and the painted grid layout at the downhill Start-Finish line although faint can still be seen, any other remains of the circuit have deteriorated in recent years.

You know you used another part of Hume Weir in this thread a few months ago? :wink: viewtopic.php?p=345045#p345045

Yes, I remember I asked for Hume Weir just a few months ago. Was that against the rules? :blush:

When I found the first photo, I saw the opportunity to ask for a track that would not be solved immediatly with the first answer. Wouldn't have known myself to be honest.




Have you read the book?

Not against the rules no.... quite a clever ploy really.
I havent read the book, but I have read quite a bit about the history and stuff.

I was about to say the Ards circuit, but perhaps that’s not correct!

It is no longer an active circuit, although they do still have a Historic Demo day using the same streets It was a street circuit as you can probably tell with houses in the background. It stopped holding races in WW2.
