Centenary of Speed

Lake Perkolilli, near Kalgoorlie

100 years of Motor Racing at the old claypan. Help us celebrate the glory years of the red dust racers.

Don’t Miss It!

It was probably the most unusual race track in the world
undefined a rock hard claypan near Kalgoorlie in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia. The first race was
conducted in 1914 and regular racing of cars, motorcycles and even bicycles continued right through to the onset of World War II. Australian endurance records were also set on the claypan. The legend of Lake Perkolilli will be revived in October 2014 with historic motor cars and motorcycles coming to celebrate the centenary.

A Centenary History book is also under preparation to be launched at the event and the author is seeking photographs for the book. For further information on the event or the book, contact Graeme Cocks by email: gacocks@iinet.net.au.
