I often think there is nothing more poignant than a dis-used and over-grown motor racing circuit.

The frenetic excitement and noise of past heroes and their glories, when by replaced by the unanswerable silence of the Australian bush, is for me a strange,moving and very sad experience.

Clicking on 'thumbnails for forums' instead of 'hotlinks for forums'... that's all...

Well, not really 'all'... you're not reducing the pics to a size they'll fit on the screen. Take them down to about 700 pixels wide would be nice.

View from starting line up to the Esses. Pits and spectator areas are now "up-market" housing estate. Parts of the original pavement can still be seen.
