Hi all :wave:


I just read that Oran Park is now closed to racing and houses are to be built on it :eek: Seems a bit sad to me, some great memories from there I am sure, I don't get the mentality at all :confused:

First of all happy new year to all forum members.
Yes Oran Park has gone, another track gone to the Sydney urban sprawl.The company i work for is in the housing industry and we have done some work on several houses at Oran Park already, i think these houses are located at the end of the main straight.
The new "town" has a very original name........Oran Park Town.

Robin Orlando.....Energol........Craven A.

All gone, along with the double decker bus that was the control tower..........which was eventually used as landfill.

I can imagine the contractors doing a bit of cut and fill levelling for foundations having to ring the office and explain how they hit a bus :D

I can recall running off the road at the flip flop, hitting bloody greats ruts in the dirt and sailing through the air for what seemed a very long time....result: cracked spine; Joe Eastmure's old 500 Suzuki bent to buggery. Also, once did a wall of death at Energol after the front brake lever fell off :eek: All seems a very long time ago, especially when recalled from snowy London.

Suttons corner, the scene of Louie the Fly crashing into my rear end (Swann Series 82) and having a tantrum, leaping up and down on the spot, all captured on TV as the dust settled :) :) Flys flys and more flys. Dust, gravel, extreme heat, an audience with Les or the Blizzards..those were the days!!!

In fairness that programme cover is of the short circuit, might you be thinking of the GP circuit, the first main corner as you say was much sharper

Not at all......the short circuit first corner came back on itself and was off camber.......The first corner on the GP circuit was more of a kink taken in 4th gear (depending on the bike). :up:

Unfortunately Oran Park's race has run (or in this case, not run, as the final meeting was cancelled due to lack of entries).
The final meeting was a car race meeting run on January 15/16.

A belated congratulations :clap:

I was also there, hanging the pit board out with the gap from Iain and Mike for John Wood. How bad is my memory? I can't remember who John's co-rider was. I can't even remember if they finished. That's terrible. I do recall Mike and Iain winning the class. I can also remember being second reserve, and did not get to practice on the bike. My brother did, and he did mention something about sticking with TZ250's rather than riding proddy bikes.

I was never really fond of the actual circuit. Low grip, especially when it was cold, and bumpy. But, irreplaceable with not a lot of options elsewhere in the future which is truly sad.

edit:- Revs magazine......was Bernie Summers Johns team mate?

Yes, well known REVS ad man (and finally, I believe) now an Australian champion of a class unknown to most, Bernie Summers. I know he lurks on this forum , so perhaps he will come out, so to speak. And, of course, John Wood. A great guy who was killed at Surfers.

Eek, I didn't know that, Peter. John Wood was as hard as nails, and a wildly-underrated racer. I seem to recall he was a contemporary of John Woodley, may have even had the same RNZAF Woodbourne origin : but after finding his way in NZ, he was a main man in the feast of 350 action that took place several times a year at Oran Park. When I was living in Sydney, and writing occasionally for NZMCN, Dave Jones the Oran Park manager at the time couldn't have been more accommodating, and so for a couple of years I was privy to some awesome race action : yes, Aussie superbikes were in their nascent period, piloted by Wayne Gardner, Dennis Neill, Roger Heyes, Rob Phillis, Jim Budd, Mick Cole, Greg Pretty, the Blanco brothers, Rod Cox, Mal Campbell and all, but for me the soon-to-be-gone 350 class (what the hell were they thinking ?) had all the action, with torrid battles featuring Ron Boulden, Gary Coleman, Mark Pace, Steve Fisher, Lee Roebuck, Wayne Gardner, Wayne Clarke, our mate John Wood, Steve Trinder, Paul Lewis, Graeme Geddes, Andrew Johnson,Rob Phillis, Steve Hardwick, Murray Ogilvie, and a host of would-bes chasing them along. Yes, the Swann Series had some amazing dices, Crosby vs Trinder, Gardner vs Campbell, Magee vs McElnea, but for me the 350 racing of the time was what Oran Park was all about.
Sadly, for some reason I'd never heard that poor John Wood had been killed at Surfers. Shame. A good guy... :|

Yes, John was ex air force. And those hangers at Woodie turned out some amazing stuff. Some very talented servicemen with far too much spare time! John and wife stayed with us for a short period in the UK, They moved up north, to Bolton, I think, where he worked and tried to get a ride or two. Actually left me his toolbox (empty, mind) when he went back to Oz.
Glad you mentioned Dave Jones. He really was a great bloke who knew the value of good press.
And you're right about the standard of Australian 350 racing. But perhaps it was the same throughout various parts of the world during that period; a golden era.
Coincidentally, heard from John (not Mark) Pace today. The throttle hand is itchy again and he's making the right noises.

Uppercut ! That's what you get for typing beyond your speed skills ! Of course I meant John, at that time he was going strong on the Fred Rose Tuning TZ350. Hope he does get back aboard, one of the neatest in my opinion.

Mark Pace, (ex-Honda Australia motocrosser) incidentally, has been having the odd gallop as well...

I remember Ian Pero. He worked ar Action Suzuki in Parramata for a while and nearly convinced me to buy a Superstreet, (remember that shortlived class), GSX, (yes that's right) 600 off of him. But the Late Duncan Read got in first and convinced me to buy a GP bike instead......

...I'm out.
I was really pissed off that Iain & Mike had got the REVS sponsorship for that race. I was riding pretty good that year on the REVS TZ250 & thought I was bound to get the magazine's support for this race. When I was told Iain & Mike were getting the ride I teamed up with Woodie on his employer's, West Ryde Motorcycles, XJ550. After practice & Qualifying we knew we were in with a pretty good chance for the class win. We were in the lead when unfortunately the valve stem tore out of the front tube at Yamaha Corner (was Robin Orlando) while I was riding (about midday??). It took me about 10 mins to push the unridable bike back to the pits & then a bit more time to get it raceable again. Woodie was generally a faster rider than me but there wasn't much in it that day. I had one of the more memorable rides of my life in that race; I seemed to be in "the zone" - I couldn't seem to do anything wrong. I remember passing Wayne Clarke and others so easily; Clarkie commented later that he had no chance of sticking with me. I think (peterd or 7okai may know) that we finished on the same lap as the Peros.

O/T but...
Woodie was bloody good rider and a great friend. He always rode the wheels off his TZ350 & as far as I'm aware was never given the chance he deserved to have a go riding for a professional team. His freak accident at Surfers Paradise raceway was supposedly caused when he hit water that had been splashed onto the track by another rider's off track excursion ("Wally" Campbell?) under the bridge. John ran off at great speed & collided head on with another rider who had also ran off & was pushing his bike back in the opposite direction. Both died as a result of the collision. A dark day at Surfers Paradise Raceway. :cry:

Glad to see you've come out, Bummers.
I was reminded today of the RD350LC pairing which unsuccessfully protested the Peros. That they managed to achieve such huge mileage between gas stops was surely down to that special "NSW-spec" oversize fuel tank!
Ah, what would an Oz proddie race be without a protest!

And now you can tell us about the day you beat Jeff Sayle and Richard Scott on a "real" bike. 250 GP race at Oran Park later that year? New class lap record?

Apparently, the developer who owns the housing development has some spare land to build a new track on somewhere near the original. Anyone closer to the source know the details?

I'm not closer to the source, but Tony Perich, whose company owned Oran Park, owns quite a bit of nearby land.
He once said he wanted to build a similar track to Oran Park near Wilton, which is about another 25km out of Sydney.
I have read that the land he wants to build the track on would require re-zoning, but given how much housing is expanding in that part of Sydney, you would wonder how long it would be before somebody starts complaining about noise levels.
If he did build the track, he has stated that it would be self funded and would not cost the taxpayers a cent.
He has quietened down a lot about building a new track after the NSW Government decided to go ahead with the V8 Supercar race at Sydney Olympic Park, so don't believe anything about a V8 Supercar race in that area in the near future (if at all).

Brilliant pics ! This looks like Stephane Mertens and he's on a Bimota , so presumably 1988 ? Incidentally, the two legs of the race that year were won by an unknown local wildcard, a certain Michael Doohan on a Yamaha :confused:

Correct . And Rob Phillis was 3rd in the first leg and 4th in the second , so a good showing by the "locals"

The following year (1989) the 1st leg was won by Peter Goddard and the second by Michael Dowson , so another OZ success.

Then the race moved over to Philip Island
