Careful of the Government they put the stop on the second track at Bathurst, with a lot used cattle feed. There is also talk of a track near they Appin road Princes Highway corner

Does anyone know any more about this proposal?

Did it just wither like so many other proposed circuits?

News to me - source? (old post I know, but I hadn't seen it before)

I hear the central coast one is making progress. The drums are saying WP is getting expensive/difficult since the Ronkes left, so some options would be nice beyond Eastern Creek, even if the central coast is a longer haul for me.

A track at Nowra would suit me, but I haven't heard anything for a year or more. Access to Nowra via MR92 isn't bad - not freeway standard, but the upgrade is high quality. Access from Braidwood or Tarago in the east is up to rigid truck or trailer standard (currently working on the bridge at Oallen Ford), and I have passed enough semis on MR92 to know that they can traverse it, and I don't think they are all going to/coming from the Nerriga pub . Access from Sydney is great until the dual carriageway runs out, but the rest is more than adequate. The Vics, well they can play at Winton to their hearts content but if they want to come to Nowra it will be a looong haul, like us northerners going to PI. We don't do it because it's easy, we do it because we want to. And I agree with an earlier post, it is not an EC-type facility that is being proposed, more like WP, for club-level activity.

I'm curious to know how that is the case, given that the only role that has changed is the day to day manager...the owner is still the same one, unless I am missing something?

BAC couldn't sell heat to an Eskimo, what a fiasco this has turned out to be. The firings have gone on beyond the Ronkes, one manager is on stress leave and there is even talk of closing the place (WP) during the week. Winton was losing 400K and WP was in the black by about $1,000,000 a year and they got rid of that bloke, management at its best!!

Ignoring the Winton/Wakefield stuff having attended a round of the Australian Motocross Championship (MX Nationals) at Nowra last month I have to say none of the factory teams seemed to have trouble getting there with their Semi's (B Doubles aren't allowed because most tracks don't have room for them).

I did the Sydney, Gong, Nowra run down and back from the airport and the upgrades to the highway were the only pain but once completed it won't be a bad run.

We had the choice of flying to Canberra or Sydney and upon some discussion with those familiar with the area chose Sydney as the more comfortable option, plus more flights out of Sydney on the Sunday evening than Canberra to get us all home so we could get to our day jobs the next day.

Granted getting from the Hume to Nowra is a bit twisty but I know one driver of a heavy rigid who, having some time to spare, drove back to Melbourne down the coast.

My job was driving Wollongong to Eden in a heavy rigid and I could do it in the same time as a car which surprised a few people.
