Adding to that, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s and ’90s speedcar hero Howard Revell has penned a thought-provoking Foreword covers his years in the sport, while the Sydney Morning Herald and Wheels magazine’s leading motoring and motor racing journo has rounded out this beautiful book with his take on the past and the future of our sport. It makes compelling reading.

The images and layouts are beautifully rendered and reproduced, with first person quotes placed within that tell the way it was from the actual competitors’ point of view, making this action-packed tome one for fans from the past, and those who follow the sport with a fervent passion today.

Tracks featured in the book include Parramatta City Raceway (Sydney Speedway / Valvoline Raceway), Premier Speedway in Warrnambool, Archerfield, Kwinana Motorplex, Claremont, Bunbury, Avalon, Brisbane Exhibition Ground, Sydney Showground, Liverpool City Raceway, Speedway City, Murray Bridge and Toowoomba.

    Speedway Action

    This extensive pictorial displays the history of Australian speedway in the heydays of the 1960s- 1990s and since. With hundreds of photos and accompanying descriptions, it captures the heart of the sport. The best book yet on Australian speedway.
