It has taken almost a full year to bring to fruition but the 2014 Golden Era Racing Revival is a must on Saturday night week (November 29) at Avalon Raceway.
The Revival will split the bill with the Beasley Brothers Memorial that has been part if Victorian speedway culture since the sixties.
Brothers Alf and Stud Beasley were speedcar racing’s dominant family, along with their hugely respected father ‘Pop’ who was in a class of his own as a designer and constructor of racing equipment.
Alf lost his life in a speedcar accident while Stud saw out his career, retired and passed away some years ago.
Andy Pearce, Troy Jordan and Travis Mills headline the entry list for the Beasley Brothers Memorial on Saturday week that will be a significant part of the Golden Era Revival.
Speedcars, modifieds, hot rods, sprintcars and many other forms of early racing equipment will be in the pits for the static display that will precede ‘robust demonstrations’ on the tacky quarter mile oval.
Graham Gallagher, who owns both the Bob Tattersall USAC title winning #3 Stroud Offy and its brother, the #35 big honker Offenhauser, will step into Wanye Pearce’s V6 Volvo midget.
The car, with Wayne at the wheel, won a Victorian title and north coast NSW driver Pearce believes it is one of the best restored midgets in Australia.
Car owners and drivers from all over Australia are heading to Avalon on Saturday week when cars from the present and bygone eras will share the spotlight.
