As part of the development of this speedway web site in September 2001, Adrian Menzel considered that seeing it was over 40 years since the speedway commenced, it would be nice to have a reunion organised to celebrate the conducting of the 1964 Australian TQ Championships which took place on the 28th December 1964.

He spoke to Brian Latz & Jim Reese, ex Eudunda Motor Cycle & Car Club Members, to see what they thought of the idea. Naturally they thought that the suggestion was a good idea.

From there, Adrian researched the minute books & old speedway programs to establish who was still alive, with the view to gain interest to form a committee to organise a reunion.

He contacted the Point Pass Hotel Social Club and on Sunday 10th March 2002 at their Annual General Meeting it was decided that they would support him in his venture, by nominating 3 members to form a "Steering Committee to make it happen".

Other support for the Steering Committee was requested from:

The Steering Committee consists of the following persons:

Jim Reese (08) 8581 1268 Eudunda Motor Cycle & Car Club
Danny Jung (08) 8581 1559 Point Pass Hall & Park Committee

The committee meetings were held at the Point Pass Hotel.

The reunion was originally planned to be held during May/June 2003.

Due to the current conditions with "Public Liability Insurance", the proposed format of the event was revised and the reunion is being planned to be held at a later date.

Jan 2004- Planning is taking longer than expected, due to finance and what type of format the reunion is to be conducted.

Contact had been made with the South Australian Classic Speedway Association (SACSA) to request them to support the event. After Adrian had attended the 2004 Murray Bridge National Classic Event, he had made some positive arrangements for assistance by SACSA, where they agreed to support the reunion at Point Pass.

April 2004 - Planning is under way for a 40th Anniversary Reunion of the 1964 Australian TQ Championships that were held at the Point Pass Speedway on the 28th December 1964.

The first Organising Committee meeting took place early in May at the Point Pass Hotel.
