    Hi everyone.
    The reason I am posting this separately from the newer version of Lakeside is because I think it deserves it's own thread.

    Lakeside in 1969 hosted the 1969 AGP which was also part of the Tasman Series.

    I have found some great photos and video of the 1969 and 1970 version of the track which in this case basically remain unchanged from 1969 to about 1977 or so.

    It is very basic and I am amazed at how plain jane it was then, even more so in the early to mid 1960s.

    Here is a shot I found in QLD Imagery. 1969 was also the first year that the current control tower was built. This version should be quite easy to build as I actually have to remove lots of walls, fences and other objects.

    Good old Chris Amon, never had luck on his side in F1. (Though he made it out alive)

    Hi everyone, I have started the WIP on my Lakeside Raceway 1969 version.

    It was the thirty fourth Australian Grand Prix and doubled as round five of the 1969 Tasman Series

    Lakeside hosted the 1966 AGP as well. This version will try and replicate the 1969 race with the ability to run the historic cars. A first release will hopefully be around January 2019.
