UnknownCirca 1920 - Historical
The Western Suburbs Motor Cycle Club approached Sydney Smith for a loan of his paddocks, known as Belmore Park, situated to the west of Smith's home, Thornton Hall. In 1925, Smith and his family floated Penrith Speedway as a public company, with Smith, the chairman of directors. Six thousand people attended its first meet. The last meeting of the Speedway was held in May 1941. This view has been taken from Thornton Hall.
