Oran park is dew to close in a few years time, (10-20) the two blokes who own all the land some 1214ha, have just had it all zoned residentual. so big development to go on there some 100000 new homes.

lets hope not but the two owners are said to be billionares over the development..

lol it only closed about 10 years ago!

Lets face it OP will close, leaving us with Eastern Creek at top dollar or Wakefield 3 hours away. And EC is a borin track.

so...GET OUT THERE and ejoy it while it is still around. OP Grand Prix circuit is by far the most interesting in NSW, its one of the old style tracks that just go up and down as the land did....very challenging in places.

Ahh Amaroo ... those were the days !!  

Who remembers "Liverpool City Raceway" ?

I DO! i remember going to watch the sprint cars there when i was a little kid. I always seemed to remember it been better than parra speedway.

You can buy a house on the main straight of Amaroo these days. Damn progress.

Amaroo park was a real loss, and can see Oran going the same way with NSW land prices being what they are:(. I should have taken my old Valiant to Amaroo, it looked a great little track with touring car races always action packed.

We will always have Punt/Bells, and with mobile phones/000, the firies and ambos will never be far away:(

  • 3 weeks later...

I heard 5 years til she closes, read this in a Motorbike Mag that they are developing the track site and a dairy farm to open new residential area...

Aparrantly the 2 owners stated that they would continue to back australian racing and that they will/might open another track elsewhere!

hope that goes ahead!

anyone remember Amaroo Park?

Amaroo park was tops. My best friend in high schools dad used to race HQ holdens (and open wheel formula cars before that) there. Was an awesome track. Glad I got to go there while it was still around.

It will be a shame to see OP go, but I'll most certainly be out there in the GTR before it does.
