They would want to emphasize the "sydney" nature of the track, so maybe "Sydney International Circuit". it still holds FIA Level 2 approval doesn't it?

That was sort of my guess, or "Sydney International Raceway"

Everyone will still call it Eastern Creek though...

Why change it? Everybody already knows where it is, and what it's for.

Possibly to market it for International events?

Sydney International Raceway would have more International appeal than Eastern Creek Raceway.

Agree, bit like many still refer to the venue for the last round as Wanneroo Park 20 years after it was renamed. Don't care how much money Alf Barbagallo tipped in, think it was crass to rename the circuit after him.

Might be renaming it to save face for Cochrane. He said he'd never return to Eastern Creek, if it's not called Eastern Creek he won't have to eat his words

wholeheartedly agree. If I bought/renovated Lakeside, I wouldn't rename it Paterson Raceway. What an ego trip!
