One thing in the statement that caught me by surprise was that:

"Another industry mogul has commence building a track on the central coast of NSW".

Does anyone know further on this?
I'd say that he probably means circuit Italia near Raymond Terrace.

True but then none of us is. Given the announcements made by ICC over the last 18 months or so, this statement from Mr Tetley seems quite plausible.

CASAR Park
Terry Circuit Italia has been discussed on this forum before - if you google the name you'll see their website.

Yep, could be CASAR park as well Pecky - with JT's reference to a "mogul" building a track, it sounded more like Italia to me but could be either.

A few errors in that story - Motorsport Queensland Pty Ltd was wound up long ago when they went bust after not being able to repay the construction loans from the Qld Government. Ipswich City Council inherited the precinct from Moreton Shire Council who had it gifted to them by the Federal Government (I think ?).

Not to mention the quote about how the Bathurst 500 is the only race in Australia that draws big crowds to the event by itself. Obviously the writer/editor of the story time travelled from the 1960s

Plus reference to the operators having run their venues for 20 years when the drag strip has been operating since 1985 (32 years now)

Whilst the video clip is from the drag strip, the unfortunate accident was actually on Queensland Raceway.

Broken first aid equipment and insufficient number of fire extinguishers according to a former paramedic who was one of the first responders. Certainly not good.
