Yes, there is that CLX.
.........to make myself feel better, and take the "glass is half full" approach................it's 'cause they're older than us !
We should know our history though, and there is no better source of information than people like we have here.
...........I didn't even know there was
a 50 cc land speed record !!
What I am really envious of are things like ".......giving a demo of the bike at Amaroo"......that stuff just doesn't happen these days, unless it is to a huge crowd, at a safe distance......and costs us a fair amount of $$$$.
I would bet they saw all sorts of things like that, for not many $$$$, and were close enough to the action to touch, smell and taste it !
I am also pissed off that (although Amaroo was fairly narrow and dated by the end) our most historic circuits are being bulldozed to make way for housing estates.
Or , in the case of Lakeside...Yuppies move into an area that has always had a race circuit, and complain about the noise until it is shut down. ( we also have people that buy house near an Airport, and then protest about the noise and want flight paths changed...........what, you didn't see the airport/aircraft before
you bought the house ??!!??
Sorry.........back to the fun.
RIP Oran Park.
