The CourierMail has a lot more about this than there is in that article so when I get a free second I will scan it in and post it.

Awesome if it gets off the ground !

Very very interesting indeed. I really hope it takes off. I also agree, this could be the saving grace for the Australian F1 GP

Also unfortunately talking about TIlke designing the circuit. Nothing he designs is exciting.

It sounds exciting - Hopefully if all the dollars stack up and an international grade circuit is built, Mr Tilke will put the one thing in that we all cry out for - ELEVATION CHANGES.
Being built on old cane fields I am concerned it'll be flat as a pancake (paperclip!!!!)

I'm sure they could put in a hill if they wanted.

In general tracks these days aren't as hilly, the punters apparently don't care for hills? Just look at Mt Panorama to see thats not true!

I guess I'd rather a Tilke-ring than another paper clip.

The brewery is close as well as the Morris complex the problem is residentual development closes race tracts and the Gold Coast Council must ensure no residentual is allowed. Some of the land in the area has a residentual zoning this needs to be changed before the development proceeds

To be honest, sounds like someone forgot that Sunday was the first of April.

If it does go ahead, best to make sure that any land around is re-zoned to reduce problems in the future.

I don't think they will be having trouble with NIMBYs from Yatala

However, they will have a fight on their hands to poach some high profile events like F1GP and Indy.

The Government is 100% against it as is the opposition , the premier was quite scathing about the idea .
Dick was on the local radio this morning trying to drum up some enthusiasm for the project , mostly fell on deaf ears from the local response , probably a few $$ in the project for Dick to stick his neck out in the media - across the highway from the "mooted project" is "Darlington park" , which is the multi , multi million $$$ circuit which the residential sprawl has caught up to (15 years ago it was that far into the bush you couldn't find the place ) - there are better areas for this type of project , not the area between Brisvegas and the Gold Coast.
