1971 - CALCIUM PARK SPEEDWAY REOPENS
The Belmont Speedway Club in conjunction with the Victorian Formular 500 Association resurrected the venue again in 1971, The Belmont committee featured such people as Ray Welsh, Bruce Fiske, and Graham Pitcher, other hard working members names have been remembered also, such as, Roly Mikelson, Ricky Tonkin, Terry Grist, Les Robbins as well as their partners.
The track was circular in shape with no straights and the safety fence was made out of railway sleepers, with a wire fence on top and another wire fence behind that.
The Belmont club ran the venue for about three years an had a huge membership, they ran Hot Rods divisions one and two, some local and some out of Melbourne, Saloons, Mini Modifieds, Sprintcars and the popular Ladies Races.
The venue would close and the owner regained control of the site, Calcium Park Speedway would never run again as a speedway.
The Belmont Speedway Drivers Club still operates but races at selected venues around Victoria.
