Geoff Vivian took this one on Sunday. Everyone had to drive past it to reach the naming ceremony for the new suburb of Brabham. It would be a bit like driving past a broken toilet to the opening of Darch. Or seeing your own car driving off in Rockinhgham – on fire, as you went to the turning of the first Rocky sod.
