Breakfast Torque

October 27 2013

For a number of years now, Sutherland Council has been sponsoring a motor cycle safety event at Loftus Oval called the ‘Breakfast Torque’. However car parking is at a premium at the oval when it’s taken over by motor bikes. With plenty of parking up along Rawson Parade and in the TAFE, the council hires the tramway to run a shuttle service between TAFE crossing and Loftus Oval. The museum has constructed small platforms at both locations for this service. A 10 minute frequency shuttle service was run between TAFE crossing and Loftus Oval, making full use of the new cross over and track, hence this event making a hard deadline for getting the new crossover into service.
