ABOUT OUR CLUB & TRACK
Portland District Motor Sports Club Inc
Cullen Bullen Raceway
Farley St, Cullen Bullen NSW
Granite and clay mix
The complex has septic toilets, brick grandstand, toilet block in the pit area and we have 2 canteens one in the pits the other under the grandstand.
How long has the club been in existence:
The club was formed in April 1985 but the club always travelled to other tracks as we didn't have a track at the time. After several attempts to aquire some land we finally got the sports ground at Cullen Bullen, although the ground can still be used for other sporting activities, we were able to set it up for speedway. With the track only being 385mtrs we have some great racing.
The track opened in April 1991 with armco fencing.
Who are the longest standing members:
Our club still has a few original members consisting of the Blackley family, Ray had been the clubs President for the past 31 years from 1985 to 2016, ray has stepped down to Vice president from 2016, unfortunatly his wife Daphne who helped in the tower, canteens and just about everywhere in between passed away in Dec 2011 and will be sadly missed by all that knew her.
Son Kevin is still preparing the race track and his wife Jodie who was secretary from 2001 to 2013.
