Yup, with adequate circuit safety, these type of incidents can be better managed and lead to better outcomes for those involved

Another reason, not to participate at this circuit and Lakeside,
Just more $$$$, why let cars onto racing circuits, that are not built for racing


There is a few ppl posting on all forms of social media to support racing at this venue.
Problem is, it is not racing, it is money for the owner who hires it out.

If it was racing, there would be required safety:
Roll cages
Fire Bombs
Racing Harness
Scrutineering to ensure it meet all safety guides
Fully maned points for safety
the list is endless,

but hey that cost money

Let any anyone who pays run,

Enforcing grass roots motorsport to go fully safety compliant with roll cages, harness etc will kill grassroots motorsport.

However, this event appears to be "street legal" drag race using the race circuit. Didn't anyone learn from Todd Wilkes accident all those years ago at Eastern Creek?

I heard from a couple of mate involved in drag racing, that the Monaro that crashed was told they weren't welcome back at Willowbank unless they fitted the appropriate safety items as per the rules governing drag racing. This was because they were doing sub 10 second quarter miles (and sub 6.49 eights) at over 145MPh (230+kph) at the quarter. They were under the impression that the car did have a roll cage then either.

If the cars are capable of going that fast, surely they should be doing some safety checks and meet a decent standard of safety.

Have heard that as well.

Car ran a 9 or something on it's one and only pass, and was told to call it a night, until it met the standards for a sub-10.5sec car. Which is full cage, containment seats, parachute, license upgrade, etc.

Precinct not secure

The Qld Government released the "ShapingSEQ" Long Term Plan last month (August 2017). It outlines the development of the Urban Footprint for South East Queensland to 2041 to accommodate the extra 5 Million people.

The Ipswich Motorsport Precinct is included in the future Urban Footprint !. Former Cr Paul Tully & Deputy Mayor of Ipswich was on the committee that put the plan together.

They have also included the RAAF Base Amberley in the Urban Footprint - unbelievable !.

The fantasy game is now over - Ipswich Council is shutting down the company formed to redevelop the Ipswich Motorsport Precinct.

No mention of this news from V8 Supercars - they have really been taken for a ride on this little escapade.

Story here. Interesting to see that the Ipswich Council CEO has now been charged with corruption by the corruption commission and other charges have been laid too. Innocent until proven guilty but it all seems to be happening in Ipswich!

In the meantime, the Motorsports Precinct does need work, hopefully the various track operators there can work out how to get it done.

Former Chairman of the motorsport precinct company & deputy mayor Paul Tully has stood down: More goings on in Ipswich

Wonder how much more of this is to come?
