Safe Streets 1000 - A cruise for dedicated motorsport facilities around Brisbane

Dear Motorsport Enthusiast,

As you know, our sport has been under attack from short sighted local Councils for years. Recently they've closed Lakeside Raceway and Darlington Park to racing and literally kicked our sport out into the streets. Then, they hypocritically complain about the mysterious increase in 'hooning' on public streets and refuse to take any responsibility when anyone mentions the rising road toll.

With the exception of the over-booked facilities at Ipswich, there are no dedicated circuits or drag-strips available for regular motorsport on either the south or northside of Brisbane, Sunshine Coast or Gold Coast. There are less facilities in Queensland now than there were 30 years ago. This situation is irresponsible considering a motoring population the size of south east Queensland. Meanwhile, motoring legislation has become more restrictive and revenue raising efforts increasingly efficient.

The lack of safe, professionally operated motorsport facilities in our state is not because the finances can't be found. Local councils control whether a property can be zoned for motorsport use and none of them are giving permission. They're all devoted followers of the NIMBY (Not-in-my-backyard) decision making system.

We are asking for separate space, away from residential communities, where we can be left to enjoy our sport in a safe and responsible manner. We don't want the politicians to pay for facilities, however, we do want them to stop blocking our efforts to do the right thing.

The opportunity to voice your concern has finally been organised, but we need your participation to get the message across. We are going to support the Safe Streets 1000 and encourage you to join us.

Lakeside Motor Racing Enthusiasts - President

....well since it hadn't been posted in since OCTOBER it most likely wouldn't have been showing up for anyone anyway. I'm sure it wasn't necessary for you to reply six months after the last post...
