"I always enjoy seeing Track Pix and was intrigued to see Mildura featured after listening to so, so many references to "the man from Mildura" by a certain Sky commentator. I used Google Earth to find Mildura and it wasn't hard to identify where the speedway track was situated on the edge of the town. It's set me off now in search of tracks with evocative names in other parts of the world. "
"Anyone got photo's of the 2015 Mildura track?"
"Noticed a request for a photo of Mildura in 2015. It is taken from the first turn looking back down the main straight. There is more banking on the track, although the photo doesn't show it. The pits have been moved from behind bends 3 & 4 to now being behind the main straight. The pit entrance is now immediately behind the judging box at the start line. The spectator area also appears flatter, possibly to accommodate temporary grand stands."
"302 metres long and it has a 112 metre long junior track on the infield where the likes of Leigh Adams, Jason Crump and Jason Lyons got their start in speedway."
