1973 - COBAR SPEEDWAY
Cobar Speedway was built in 1973 by members of the Cobar Auto Club, including the Parisi brothers, Claude Parisi still operates Cobar's local motor cycle dealership.
The venue was originally built as a two track complex with an inner oval for car racing and surrounded by the outer motorcycle moto-cross track.
The oval was a standard quarter mile track built on common ground just North of Cobar, The deal with the local shire was that if anything happened to the club then all the land reverts back to the Shire Council ownership.
The oval was built for a very strong fender bender division based in Cobar at the time, In its day it held a NSW verses USA sedan test but mainly ran as a club venue. the speedway side of the venue was forced to close 1996 due to public liability insurance issues that rocked the speedway world at the time.
The Bourke Road track still operates today and still under the control of the Cobar Auto Club as a motor cycle venue only, using the outer moto-cross track and the speedway oval for flat track bike racing.
