Midget Speedcar display at City Hall

Midget Speedcar display at City Hall 7

 A Midget Speedcar display at City Hall was held on October 26th. This display was organised as part of the celebration of 90 years of Speedway Racing at the Brisbane Exhibition Grounds. The quarter mile track was first a cinder surface and later changed to crushed granite. Solos, Sidecar Outfits, GNAT’s [motorcycle engine small cars] which later became TQ’s (Three Quarter Midgets), raced here. Also car engined Midget Speedcars, Super Modifieds and Saloon Cars all competed here at different times during the 90 year history.

The Midget Speedcar display at City Hall in King George Square, provided an amazing backdrop for the Solo Motorcycles and Midget Speedcars on display. Crowds of city workers and shoppers flocked to view the display and hear speeches by Lord Mayor and former Drivers and Riders. It was a fine hot day with a total of 3 solos and 211 Midget Speedcars on display. Hope you enjoy our  photos from the day.
