And the point of building an FIA & FIM spec track, in the shadow of what will always be known as the "proper Bathurst track" is...?

How incredibly stupid. Who in their right mind would go to Bathurst and want their race on another generic cookie cutter racetrack, when one of the greatest tracks in the world is about 500 metres away !?!??!? It would never get used.

The designs that they are showing on Speedcafe, look pretty boring- Scalextrix beginners set would probably be more exciting!

there must be some logic behind the 2nd circuit. anyone know what it is?

Does it get around the rules regarding only so many races?

for $50 Mill you could buy all the properties and the current track would be permanent

And there is the answer.

Why isn't that being looked into? Makes perfect sense. And could be the start of a regional technology hub, around motorsport activities.

The possibilities exist, if you think beyond the square

Interesting Designs.

http://www.speedcafe.com/2017/04/04/...hurst-circuit/

I may just download the tender documents just to have a look at the requirements for the Scope of Work for the design.

This old chestnut used to appear on slow news days in the Auto Fiction news office back in the eighties.

The purpose back then was to allow for more race meetings because the locals would not be inconvenienced by designing the proposed circuit so only a small part on the existing circuit would be used.

Most of the designs back then used Murray's Corner, Pit Straight and Hell Corner with the new part of the circuit starting halfway up Mountain Straight and rejoining the existing circuit on Conrod Straight.
