Motor racing on Sellicks Beach was first run in the early years of the 20th Century.

Several groups made use of the beach and the hills behind the beach, to race not just bikes, but cars as

well. All trying to set new speed records.

Established in 1922, The Levis Social Club organised social outings and simple trials for owners of the

Levis (pron. lev-iss) two-stroke motorcycle.

 

However, driven by the wishes of its’ members, the focus of the Club soon changed and from 1924 the Levis Social Club Speed Trials became an annual summer event at Sellicks Beach, generally on the Australia Day weekend.

Speed was new and exciting, there were records to be had in cars, on bikes, with aeroplanes and trains, any number of early year machines were trying to be the fastest.
