More on Penrith's race tracks - Penrith Showground

It's getting out of hand, I know.

We started with Penrith Speedway.

Then it was Jamison Park.

And Werrington or Brooklands (or 'Frogmore').

And Nepean Speedway.

Well how about a Paceway?

Penrith Paceway, at Penrith Showground. It's been around since before 1943, that much I know. And there must be more to it than that. Yes, it's pacing, or harness racing. No, I don't know what that really means, I've only raced cars and push bikes.

Want more?

Well, looks like we've gotten a bit carried away pulling information from dusty storage about the race tracks here in Sydney hey? Informative for most, but I too think it's time to look at other establishments' history now!

Thanks again, Edward. I'm mulling over my next obsessional area of local history interest... hmmm. Something someone else hasn't already done (and done well) is the main thing.
