Local fan launches book on Australian speedway legends

Local Speedway fan and serving police officer Tony Loxley has launched a new book on his main passion: Speedway.

He has documented an extraordinary national history of the sport, though not with a formal narrative. Rather he's pulled together a stunning collection of photography and captioned it as a means of telling the story.

Speedway fans will be pleased to see that cars of all shapes and sizes, motorcycles and sidecars all get a run.

It follows the progress of the sport from the 1950s through to the 1980s, at times revealing what we'd now see as a spectacular disregard for driver safety.

The coffee table-style hardbound book is massive at over 400 pages and is published by New Holland.

To us, the price seems very reasonable at $60.
