1930's MOONAH SPEEDWAY
Moonah Speedway was operating in 1930 - 1931 but the actual starting and finishing dates are not known at this point in time.
The speedway ran solo's and sidecar's with other novelty events including cycling, trotting and foot races, One such event was Ladies rocket race, This involved a lap by the sidecars with a lady passenger who at the end of the lap had to run to the centre of the speedway and light a skyrocket.

MOONAH SPEEDWAY LOCATION
Thanks to John Campbell from NSW we have narrowed down the location to Hobart's new Sportsground on Sunderland Street and in 1936 Australia's biggest woolshed was built on the site, Sunderland Street is quite short, can you help.
