Anyone heard about the plans for a last run to the site of the first Drag Strip in Aus, 'Pakenham', before it get's bulldozed and lost forever...

Thunderbirds are currently negotiating withe the powers to be for approval.
The site will be an on or off ramp for the new freeway.
The day will probably be just a picnic day but we are hoping to get some of the old cars out and do some photos on the launch pad.

Straight from the president

"THUNDERBIRDS
Rod & Custom Club of Victoria Inc.


Hi All,

Re: Picnic day to be held at the old Pakenham drag strip site.

We now have permission from Vie Roads to use the land that was once the old drag strip and airfield. This property, after November, will become the new Pakenham bypass off ramp, thus ending any identity of what this land was once used for.
As a club we would like to remember the old days at the Pakenham drags by holding a picnic day at the site. This would give rodders an opportunity to recall their stories of the good old days of drag racing and catch up with old friends. Those attending should bring their own picnic lunch and chairs,
We would like to extend an invitation to all rodders who may have attended or are interested in these days at the Pakenham drags. If anyone has any memorabilia or a car that attended we would like them to bring them along for "show & tell". We believe that the original 34 roadster that once belonged to Darryl Harvey and raced at Pakenham Drags, now owned by David Green, will be there on the day.

Where: Koo Wee Rup Road, Pakenham. Melway P317 F12
When: Sunday October 24th 2004
Time: 10-3Oam onwards.

Yours in roddding
Dennis Jones
President
