Our Challenges are great – they make you look harder!
The above rock / boulder is positioned by the Longford Pub. The Pub sits on what was a fiercely contested corner when the road around formed Australia’s GP circuit. The cars would come down to the corner going in the direction of Bluey, turn hard right and take off down Tannery Road (now main road out of Longford).
The rock is a memorial to Timothy Mayer and, as I had no idea who he is/was, I looked him up.
The full detail can be found HERE.
Briefly, the rock commemorates Mr Mayer who was an American Formula One racing driver and who lost his life in Longford while practising for the 1964 Australian GP. He crashed just short of the Pub.
