    2011 was the Golden Anniversary and Four classic historic meetings were held, March then May - just missed that, but got to the July and August meetings, no photos just these some tickets and a hat to show for my visits.

    Have been to various meeting since 2012 to 2015 but no programmes like these with the history of the track and some great photos.
    Thanks to the efforts of many the track still survives after a major rebuild in 2009, and the improvements are ongoing
    The Norm Beechey Monaro came to New Zealand and featured in a video clip on TRS recently

    I attended the Lakeside Classic (All Historic Race meeting) 2016 recently. Great day Saturday, drizzle all day Sunday, but a great track. We should all be thankful it is still up and running.

    Lakeside Classic - Golden Anniversary and now 57 years,

    2011 was the Golden Anniversary - the Track which struggles at times is still going at 57 years on from 1961.

    The 50th Anniversary Classic Historics Season was Three meetings and I got to Two of them - no camera though only the Programme's [ and tickets ] to show.
    First meeting was in May and had only just arrived in Queensland, so missed out on attending.
    Met Seaqnmac at one of the meetings in 2014/15.

    Lakeside 2020 ..My wish list.

    Returning to Queensland in May 2020 for a holiday and catch up with family and friends - mainly Kiwi's .
    Hope to get to Lakeside for a Sprint or Race meeting - understand the track has had noise issues in 2019 and had some meetings cancelled.
    Brian Ferrabee [ a guy from Pirongia / Te Awamutu ] - who provided an image on this thread, is the Announcer there and siupporter of QR with Young Drivers.
    Will try to catch up with him, just need to persuade the Brother-in-law to take me in his Toyota F86 Coupe.

    Hope see some good racing, good cars.

    A memory from 2015. A Chevron and a Brabham BT29 in the pits.

    2021 at Lakeside should be the 60th Anniversary Celebrations - hopefully with a series of Special Events as they did for the 50th in 2011.
    Going through my archives - a collection of several boxes, came across this Poster.
    as mentioned on " Motoring Books " thread attended the last two of the four events in 2011, plus others over the years 2011 to 2015/16.

    Ray,
    I did not find that photo but I did find this interesting article with a photo right after the start of the 1966 Tasman Series race at Lakeside which was the 31st Australian Grand Prix.

    Ah yes, that's it... the photo at the top with the field starting to pour into the kink...

    It was a good spot for taking photos, I took a similar one at the previous meeting when a heat the Australian Tourist Trophy started, but I got that from further up the hill:



    I must talk to Mark about crediting me with that AGP pic, the credit is in the book.
