1956 BELL BAY SPEEDWAY
Bell Bay Speedway opened in 1956 and was run by the S A C S A for several years as a well promoted speedway track, the track would later close in 1959 because of spiraling costs and a lack of volunteers.
The speedway would reopen in the 1990's for spirited demonstration events organised by the South Australian Classic Speedway Association.

1990's BELL BAY SPEEDWAY TQ's
One local recalls: one of the items on the menu at the speedway was hot turkey and gravy sandwiches, it wasn't actually turkey, instead it was boned out lamb flaps.
The late Kim Bonython when he competed at Bell Bay claimed they were the best turkey sandwiches he had ever had.
One local recalls: The track was closed after the Mayor of Gawler who was a competitor at the time rolled his stock-car.
