They would rebuild the second set of pits near Turn 5?
Alternatively Supercar needs 12/13 of the double garages.How many does that leave for IndyCar?Another 12 would do it.
Still doubt it will happen

Surly no circuit has garages for support races? They have to camp in the paddock

Supercar doesn’t do camping in the paddock.They built a separate pit building for them at Albert Park.

At taxpayers expense and up until the last few years pit stops were not a feature of the Supercar races.

A disgraceful waste of money.

I'm pretty sure the pit building in question is just a fancy tent, that also gets use at Townsville and probably Newcastle as well.

Supercars teams should be perfectly happy with tents.

If shared tents are good enough for Super2 and Carrera Cup, the idea it is not good for Supercars is preposterous to say the least.

If true, this shows Supercars to have a disgraceful and untenable attitude.

Guess they have been the main event except for the F1? Long time since Australi had a serious race series-I remember the days of Tasman series

Heads Up! Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation announced that the track and series have been sold to Roger Penske...he may be on a shopping spree...look out Bathurst, PI, The Bend and Eastern Crick!

It probably deserves its own thread. Ford flogs complain about Roland's money while Roger buys the entire Indycar series and Indianapolis motor speedway

What's the problem here, Mixup?

You should be endorsing this kind of thing, as per the thread discussing Roland and co buying the Supercar series:

Clearly he has quality procedures and an eye for talent, and there's no doubt if he had more involvement in the sport's administration, I don't see how anybody could see it as a negative.

Unless you believe he's the boogie man, which some people obviously do.
Penske is the same fit, if not better for IndyCars; but it seems you're the one now worried about the "boogie man".

Just wait till Major Events Victoria gets a sniff of this, they'll work out a way to build a third pit lane at Albert Park and host a Triple Header weekend...

As much as I love Indy Car, i wouldn't be jumping on a plate to Sydney to see them race around Eastern Creek. I honestly don't think it is the place for such an event. Yes, some points of the circuit may make it interesting for passing, but the whole location, isn't exactly going to sell the city. Under lights or not...

Many many moons ago, there was a push to host a street race around Cronulla.

Even if F1 wanted them there it wouldn’t look good for IndyCar to be on the same bill as F1.At COTA they were 17 seconds a lap slower than F1 and looking at comparative speeds they are significantly slower than F2.Also the quality of racing on road and street circuits this year hasn’t come close to what F1 has come up with at every race since France.
