Reen Road / Peter Brock Drive
© Prospect Heritage Trust Inc.
In June 2008, Blacktown City Council renamed a section of Reen Rd, on the border of Prospect and Eastern Creek, Peter Brock Drive. Another section of the road has been renamed Auto Place.
This has been done to recognise and commemorate the life of one of Australia’s most respected racing car drivers who dominated Australian motor sport for more than 20 years.
Peter Brock Drive now runs from Reservoir Rd., at Prospect, past the Eastern Creek International Karting Raceway to the Sydney Motorsport Park, formerly known as the Eastern Creek International Raceway, at Eastern Creek.
Reen Road was originally named after the Reen family, who operated a dairy farm in that location.
