Dunc Gray Velodrome

The Dunc Gray Velodrome was built for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games and is located in Bass Hill, approximately 5 kilometres north west of the Sydney suburb of Bankstown. Set in The Crest recreational park, the velodrome's elevated location and domed roof make it a landmark for the surrounding community. Inside, the curved 250-metre track is made from Baltic pine and bends at a maximum angle of 42° degrees, while the straights are at 12.5°.

The venue has a seating capacity of 3,150, but was expanded to 5,821 seats to cater for the Sydney Olympics. Costing $42 million, construction of the velodrome, as well as an 800m Criterium Practice Track, commenced in May 1998 and finished in November 1999.

The metal decked roof has glazed central skylights, equipped with light-control louvres which optimise natural light and eliminate shadows on the track. The velodrome is named after Dunc Gray, who won Australia's first cycling gold medal at Los Angeles in 1932.

The State Government owned the velodrome at the time of its construction and Bankstown Council managed the velodrome under a sublease. In 1998, the council sublet the velodrome to Bankstown Sports Club, under a 21-year sublease. The council is scheduled to resume control of the velodrome in 2019, however annual costs of $500,000 and under-use of the venue have put the future of the Dunc Gray Velodrome in some doubt.
