The joint could do with some upgrades, that's for sure.

Pitlane infrastructure consisting of a row of carports, doesn't really cut it these days.

The council bloke who was pro-Supercar is not in the building anymore. Perhaps that is the difference?

Could be but don't think so - the discussions/negotiations have been going on for quite a while (months) I believe. Interesting that Warbo mentioned the end of the agreement with state govt whereas before I thought that QR was kinda part of the GC/Townsville arrangement.

Matt Ronke (ex Winton and Wakefield Park) is now part of the team at Queensland Raceway, not sure how much Matt had to do with the deal, but he certainly has the back-ground to negotiate the deal

What would the government support be required for?

Are there any planned upgrade for the facilities at Winton?

Winton (to the best of my knowledge) is the only event where the track owner is the 'promoter, at other tracks it is 'Supercars' themselves, State or Local Government who are the promoter, or at least props up the event.

It is very difficult for tracks to run a profit due to the outgoings to put the event on, ever decreasing crowd numbers at all events is making it very difficult for 'promoters' to make a quid

Government support happened at many events to keep the track/promoter from going under

other than some very recent support for the track re-surfacing, 99.9% of anything spent at Winton has been spent by the car club that owns it. They make most of the money from events other than 'Supercars', the loss that quite often comes from running 'Supercars' is off-set by profits from other race meets / track hire / burnout type events / drifting
