  • Robert J Rogers:

    "Lovely Photos, what is the track size? Can we have it in Yards for us old folk! What meetings are planned there, and is there a chance that some Australia vs England Test matches can be revived?"

  • John Callaghan:

    "The Track Length is a remarkable (by UK standards) 557 yards. "

  • Peter Hunter:

    "The length of the track is roughly the same size as the old Sydney Showground Speedway (Speedway Royale) which sadly closed in 1996, There was an Australia vs USA match (unofficial) test there in 1999 but generally the only speedway that takes place there these days is demonstration runs by vintage cars during the Sydney Royal Easter Show."

  • Peter Hunter:

    "I have to correct the info in my previous comment. The Sydney Showground at Homebush (the 2000 Olympic Baseball Stadium) is not the same length as the old Showground. The old one was 509m (557 yards) while the new showground is about the same length as the Ekka (Brisbane Exhibition Ground) at 450m (492 yards)."
