Ipswich Motorsport Precinct redevelopment

So Damien White has been appointed by Ipswich City Council as General Manager of the motorsport precinct:http://www.speedcafe.com/2016/07/01/...lopment-plans/

Interesting times ahead by the sound of it but dependant on funding as you'd expect.

Wonder when we'll start to see plans or outcomes from this? Next Federal election is probably a way off and State election three or so years from now (unless one more govt member leaves - very small majority). Elections often are the driver for funding promises so Mr White may have his work cut out to achieve funding in the short term.

Paul Pisasale has shown himself to be someone who can get stuff happening though so anything could happen.....

A few hundred tonnes of dirt might be a good start. The most boring circuit in Australia as it is. Good luck to him.

I really hope this gets some legs and we get a permanent, proper race circuit up here, in Sth East QLD. How many times have we heard all talk and no action resulting about a new circuit, anywhere around the country? The difference with this, is that Mayor Paul Pisasale is well and truly behind it. He really is a rare breed of politician that has a lot of respect in Ipswich, and if it does go ahead, they must actually do it right, this time around. The 6 klm noise buffer zone they have up there gives them plenty of room to create something special, as long as they don't try and do it on the cheap and end up with another version of the most boring track in Australia.

As a regular at other forms of motorsport at the Ipswich Motorsport Precint, it seems Mayor Pisasale, ideas is in the form of $35 mil upgrade. This would go to improvements and relocating some current facility's to improve access in to the site, "champions way" . establish motorsport industries out there as well. But it still needs an upgrade of the Highway from the Centenary Highway intersection right past Willowbank, and an alternative entrance.

Mr Quinn also had plans to extend the circuit out from turn two before it heads down the straight , but he and Mr Tetley haven,t been able to agree on a price. It has been said that two offers had already been put to QR.

Ipswich Council has taken back all leases bar one. So if Paul wants his dream, he may have to buy out QR's lease, rumored to be $21 mill

If it does get up, it will be better for South east Qld motosport.

Fomoco, Ipswich Council have definitely not taken back all leases bar one. The dragstrip & kart track have long term leases & motorcycling Qld also has a long term lease for the facility they are building there to replace Tivoli.

fair enough, wasn't aware of them, but I do no the council wants full control, and the clubs lease the facility.

Channel Nine Brisbane News reports a ten year deal for Supercars at Qld Raceway is only days away from being inked in.

No doubt we will get an announcement in the lead up to the Gold Coast Canyon Fest.

Interesting - $150K for a masterplan that is to replace the previous (2013 I think) masterplan done for $120K by Apex - the same UK company that did the plan for SMP.

Wonder who'll do this masterplan?

Gotta love a good master plan. My previous employment had about 4 in 10 years. Didn't stick to them and haven't managed to stick to the latest one they only did last year.

Sounds like they are still working out what they want to do.
