Calder Park, a Victorian landmark owned by the late Bob Jane and known for its iconic history of rock concerts and car races, is sitting abandoned and slowly wasting away on the outskirts of the Calder Freeway. 

I want to help save this respected, historical site and breathe life back into its veins. Save one of our most loved icons, don’t let it be demolished or continue to sit there. 

Calder Park and its thunderdome still have a lot of potential left. New South Wales has Bathurst, why not have something of similar significance here in Victoria to help boost revenue? We would undoubtedly attract a lot of tourists and help stimulate our economy once again, especially since it’s fallen into dark times recently from the ongoing stress of COVID-19 which bled most businesses and people dry. 

We have a lot of history contained in this 1.417 mi venue, and to leave it to die on its failing life support would be an insult not just to its history, but to the man who once put Victoria on the map by investing so much of his wealth into the area. And if the drag strip were open to the public, less young people would die on the roads from reckless behaviour. 

Don’t allow this sacred strip of land to be turned into an industrial area, or be converted into more and more ever growing apartment blocks. Please pen your signature to save Calder Park.
