    Dunedin Street Races - Festival 1962

    A couple of images from Dunedin.

    Copy of a track map with some notes and the programme - can't read the date on the programme. notes by Graeme Staples.
    Can confirm that the track was as used in 1959 and 1960.
    There are even notes about the gradients on part of the circuit.

    Have found several version of the tracks used over the period 1954 to the 1980's.
    posted before but will group them in a new post.

    Cars having fun at a corner - two going ahead, and two spinning around. Year not sure !! Late 1950's *** ??.
    Just checked my notes ;
    *** " Dunedin 1962 - Stan Prestige in the Ford V8, VW and Minor spin - Allan Dick archives. "
    Hard to read the plates - which if 1962 will be the last of 5 yearly issue 1961 - 66 - actually finished in the 1965 -66 licencing year. Black Numbers on a Yellow Plate..
    The corner is, I presume " Service Station Corner " where Wilkie Street meets King Edward Street.
