From 1914 to 1939, an isolated claypan 23km from Kalgoorlie hosted an annual motor racing meeting which became legendary.

Lake Perkolilli is a unique, rock hard claypan which has been the location for many Australian speed records. It was almost forgotten until vintage motor racing enthusiasts returned to bring it to life once again. Lake Perkolilli comes to life before dawn when the coffee pots start boiling and the smell of frying bacon starts wafting across the camping areas. There is always someone who starts an unmuffled car or bike engine to break the silence. Aah, the music of motors to wake the late risers!

THE LAKE PERKOLILLI RED DUST REVIVAL IS RUN BY ENTHUSIASTS FOR ENTHUSIASTS!
