"Ashgrove Racetrack"

Many years ago, there was a racetrack called Lakeside. It became a bit run down and eventually closed its doors. Drivers needed somewhere else to test their metal and wits. They went looking for another place to race and found,

Bott Street.

This street is infamous for hoons, rat runners and the ignorant. Traffic 'calming' measures have been added and now thanks the sweeping bends they provide, race car drivers can keep the motor racing spirit alive with a quick spurt down a once quiet residential street.

The council/local government have actually made it easier by removing a traffic island in the adjoining Woodlands Street and allowing MORE traffic to use the track.

For the budding drag racer, the best times are peak hour, and late Saturday and Sunday nights when a clear run will ensure a great time. Don't worry about Police, they've ignored local residents plea's for help for years - your as safe as houses, (obviously not those in Bott Street though)

For budding residents - forget it. You'd be safer crossing a Piranha infested Amazon River than Bott Street.

UPDATE: Brisbane City Council has approved so many units in the street without thinking about the car parking that frequently cars will park on the footpath and across driveways in order to be close to home. Interesting to note that no building approval council workers live in Bott Street.
