Indycar in Sydney?

AA reporting that the NSW Government is going to fund a double header race in Sydney with Supercars & Indycars...

Doesn't say where?

https://autoaction.com.au/2019/10/30...6563E8PTxp7OFI

Apparently deal with QLD Govt has fallen over.

Puhleeze not SMP.

If there was a race to have a double-header like this please let it be Philip Island (I know I am dreaming).

If an Indycar race ran under lights at SMP it mightn't be so bad. I'd go.

It would be nice to see Indycars in Australia, like it used to back in the day when it went to Surfers Paradise

If not SMP, it'd have to be a street circuit.

That's what I was thinking.

Who would want to spend money to get on TV in the US?

Can't really have the Katoomba Street race can we?

Catalina Park goes mostly left, almost like an oval

The front wings will scoop up the weeds and growth in opening practice nicely too

Oran Park?

I couldn't care less for anyone who bought land there, so I think a street race would be cool...

NSW has the best racetrack in the country, but it's unavailable for ~ 50 weeks of the year.

Given the Vodafone F1 car got around there okay a few years back, surely it could be a possibility?

F3 will be the fastest open wheelers that visit the Mountain "regularly" ie more than once.

Anyway either of these circuits are not remotely suitable for Indycars even allowing for some of the goat track street circuits IndyCar have raced on.Bathurst has no run off at most points.
I would be surprised if Supercars quit Eastern Creek within months of convincing the same government to install permanent lighting there to lock in a Supercar round long term.
Will probably all come to nothing.

I'm not sure if this Indycar rumour comes to fruition that it can be at SMP either. Not enough pit facilities for both categories...
