Wow that is cool, a race around that waterfront area would be awesome.

I'd go to Newcastle for a race for sure, I love it. Plus I have customers there, maybe I should take them to a corporate box

It is a pity that the Council has stopped the hillclimb through King Edward Park-it went from virtual seaside up through narrow roads and pathways to the top and would really have made it interesting for supercars.
Unfortunately it is said in jest and whilst the waterfront area has some space the problems of access could be an issue.
People ***** about getting into and out of various tracks and I don't see this being any exception.

Newcastle set for Supercars finale

While another regional city, Gosford, was officially withdrawn from making any bid for a race by its city council last week, sources insist that was a face-saving measure because Newcastle had already won the rights to the event.

I hope the circuit isnt the one shown on Speedcafe, looking at Google Earth street view its barely two cars wide in places.

Close to transport, well at least it was before some idiot closed the train line to the centre of town a couple of years ago.

Skaife more or less alluded to the fact on Inside Supercars that any proposed race in Newy won't be around the waterfront which is problematic on many levels.

It seems Newy gets a street circuit in the interim (away from the cbd) until 'Circuit Italia' 10km north of Raymond Terrace is completed. This was the former Ringwood Park Hillclimb. The new name apparently comes from the road it's situated on Italia Rd.

http://www.theherald.com.au/story/40...ject-gears-up/

Local radio in the Hunter was saying the morning this story broke that funding for both Supercars and Circuit Italia was a part deal with Tourism NSW and the State Government. How accurate that was is anyones guess.

There are anti everything groups in Newcastle. Hunter Concerned Citizens, Friends of King Edward Park, Save our Figs, Save our Rail. They are sure to have a say and are against any progress for the city. I hope it gets off the ground, but it won't be seamless.

This was the reason one of the original proposals for the former Ringwood Park Motorsport precinct failed in 2003. Council held a public meeting at Raymond Terrace townhall and the place was packed and there was also a large number of people outside not able to get in. There was overwhelming support with just 7 opponents in attendance. Yet Port Stephens council rejected the proposal. The current proposal has passed successfully at the expense of the speedway and dragstrip.
On the opposite side if the highway of Circuit Italia is the abandoned Ringwood RAAF runway. Wouldve been a perfect solution for the drag strip but has been acquired by the Hunter Water Board.
