Another drive-in located in the centre of a racetrack. It makes perfect sense when you consider that so much of the infrastructure is already in place including a well established very prominent location which is fully fenced.

Upon my first quest to locate this drive-in I was unsuccessful. I was told that the drive-in was located in the centre of the trotting track, yet could see no trace on my first visit. My subsequent trip a decade later revealed some speaker posts used to mount some signage and then the forest of posts hidden in a long forgotten corner of the compound.
