Surfers Paradise International Raceway located just behind the golden beaches of Surfers is sadly long gone, replaced by the urban sprawl of townhouses, golf links, whatever. It was a great race circuit and drag strip, numerous major motorcycle races were held at Surfers including the Queensland round of the annual Swann Series and Three Hour Production Races.
