1960's BOYANUP HOT ROD TRACK
During the period that the Bunbury Car Club raced at Blicks Raceway, it was sometimes too wet to hold the meeting, as on the high tides the race track and the entry road would be under water, the club decided to have a back up plan and this was the Boyanup Ferguson Road track, built in a gravel pit with what we beleive was a split level circuit with very steep uphill and downhill straights, the racetrack was surounded by large jarrah logs,

Dennis Lamp Recalls: At the age of 16 I had a cut down 1948 Ford Mercury with a sidevalve V8 that I used as a bush bashers, At the time I lived in Picton just outside Bunbury,close to a Super Modified driver by the name of George Lane and he convinced me to flat tow the car out to Boyanup that Sunday as the Bunbury Car Club was holding a meeting, and that I did, At the time my road car was a Morris 1100 and not up to the job, So I called on a mate Murray Hanson to tow me to the track as he had an EH Holden, as I recall the Track was quite dangerous.
The Boyanup Hotel a favourite stop-over for many Bike clubs travelling around the South West on runs.
