Mount Druitt

This circuit was based on a World War II airfield. It was originally 1.5 miles long when first used after WW2, before being gradually extended to 2.4 miles during 1951/2. It closed dramatically in 1958, when in November of that year Belfred James Jones, whose lease of the circuit was about to expire, took a mechanical digger around the track and dug a trench all the way around it, rendering it unusable.
