1982 - BARLEIGH RANCH COMPLEX
In the days of the Raymond Terrace Motor Cycle Club the Barleigh Ranch track used to be a privately owned speedway were vintage speedway competitors got together to hold spirited demonstration runs.
Since then the Hunter Valley Motorcycle Club has purchased the venue and has turned it into a five track complex, including junior speedway, Senior Speedway, Short Circuit and long circuit racing, as well as a motocross track.
The track officially opened in 1983, Some sections of the track are common in most of the tracks.
