Farewell Oran Park

 

It’s amazing when an entire street of fibro homes in Sydney’s west (a street identical to thousands of others with fibro homes) can be heritage listed, yet something as historically significant as Oran Park isn’t worth a thought.

 

WARNING:  THE FOLLOWING SCENES MAY DISTRESS SOME VIEWERS. 

 

How very, very sad - but our memories will live for ever....I just wonder what the street names will be - Ice Coffee, Sutton's, Flip Flop, Turn 1, Turn 5...who knows ! 

 

If you look at some of the backgrounds you will see the housing estate very well established and our last race there the houses were well and truly built at the end of the straight.....and the corporate suites have well and truly gone by now.

These pictures say a 1000 words....there is nothing more to say !!!
