Lakeside Park

Recently, I visited Lakeside Park in Queensland for the first time.  The track opened in 1961 and is one of Australia’s most favourite and classic circuits.  It’s situated 30 kilometres north of Brisbane and cuts through grassland along the shores of Lake Kurwongbah. The circuit has hosted rounds of the Australian touring car championship, GT races and the Australian Superbike Championship.  Throughout the 1960’s, the track also hosted the Tasman series and attracted some big name Formula One stars including Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart and Jack Brabham.  Other major races included the Australian Touring Car Championship, which visited from 1967 to 1998.
