The Final Visit to Flemington Speedway
Some will say the end occurred when the final race was held a few years ago. Many will tell you that the end of Flemington Speedway began when the checkered flag waved on the final dirt race in 1990.
We all knew it was over... even the most optimistic knew the area no longer wanted her.
But as illogical as it seemed, there was something about the majestic grandstand that remained standing through it all... Something that wouldn't let many of us accept the obvious... the inevitable.
The Grandstand is now gone. It was the last to go. And with that, we have made our last visit and have said goodbye.

"Angling out of 4"
"Down the front."
"Into 1 they go..."
Grandstands, Crows Nest, Catwalk... Decades of Memories.
"Last piece standing..."
...and it becomes a memory too.
They removed the steel... They'll remove the blocks... But they'll never get our memories.
Relieved of duty, the tower will stand guard no more.
The lights are out at Flemington..
