1928 - BUCKLEBOO SPEEDWAY 23rd March 1928
The Buckleboo Speedway, was at the ungraded right angle corner opposite the North Western corner of the railway yards within the Buckleboo Station, 19 miles from Kimba.
Allan Baker recalls: Until 2005, Buckleboo was the railhead for one branch of the Eyre Peninsula Railway, a narrow gauge railway whick principally hauled grain via Kimba and Cummins to Port Lincoln for export.
The Silos at the former railway station and the few remaining buildings are surrounded by the Buckleboo Conservation Reserve which was proclaimed in 1990.

1930 - PINKAWILLINIE ROAD
Allan Baker recalls: Less known are the possibilities of the Pinkawillinie Road being used as a speedway. Recently it was tried out by several lads, who were downhearted at not being able to witness the Oakbank meeting.
