Without him the race had few supporters in high places, and little funding. IIRC the local Govt said it was not going to be even a consideration for many years yet.

I daresay the $60million hosting fees per year said mayor had agreed to is a bit of a stumbling block in his absence.

It was never going to happen, especially after the pandemic. So we can forget about it. With one man behind it, no one was going to take over the project when he went down. It's consigned to the scrapheap. But it's no great loss either, I never felt it would be that good anyway
