1987 1988 - WORLD CLASS SOLOS COME TO TOM PRICE
The Tom Price Speedway Club enjoys a reputation for organising big speedway events, but over the new year they hit world class.
The club hosted an early round of the Ivan Mauger 30 year World Jubilee Series speedway competition.
Ivan Mauger 15 times Champion in various speedway events, appeared along with 10 international speedway stars, racing was held over two nights - two days apart.
Club preident Gary Hankinson says it was standing room only around the track no more cars could be fitted.

The track preperation was hampered by heavy rains that washed away the prepared track just a week prior to the meeting, the allready tired volunteers worked flat strap to repair the track in time with Hamersley Iron lending machinary as well as transporting by train some much needed beach sand for the coastal town of Dampier. the West Pilbara Shire also loaned the club a grader.
