peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Phillip Island The Only Future Victorian VASC Venue?? (merged x3)

PI could be victorias only championship venue

Appears that Sandown and Winton are not locked in going forward

V8 Supercars would be stupid to drop Winton and Sandown rounds.

While Sandown is still active as a race circuit, wouldn't you use it?

Perhaps another street race in a third world country?

Maybe they could do a street race in Geelong...oh, wait....
Maybe they could make the GP a points paying round...oh, wait...

I feel for Winton, it seems like every two or three years the V8s give a list of reasons why they shouldn't go there instead of all the reasons they should be there.

I think thats whats the article said about Sandown. They expect to lock in another contract, but going forward Sandown will be gone due to its closure,

As for Winton, Well many people are on here are always on about government support for permanent tracks, Seems they have ally in Warburton. Rather than be critical, all motorsports fans should be behind him on this.

How about some Supercar support for Winton?

Maybe match dollar for dollar with the government?

Sandown To Close??

Story Here

The land around the circuit is clearly worth too much to stay as its current development level



Wonder if they could relocate the grandstand to Phillip Island?

It makes you think about all the money spent on temporary circuits and what will happen when that spending comes to an end.

Lack of investment in permanent facilities will haunt the sport we love over the next 30 to 50 years.

That'd be more than fair, surely, considering one of the only meetings the upgrades V8SC are seeking at Winton are for their annual visit there anyway.

But do V8SC have that kind of coin in their coffers....

Never ceases to amaze how an administration that is so big on trumpeting how successful it is, is perennially turning up with its hand out. The constant 'kick in or else' mantra is wearing a bit thin, the NSW government calling V8SC's bluff it by refusing to continue bankrolling Homebush. It's not as if prospective promoters are knocking the door down to stage events.

Sorry, whats wrong with asking the government to fund track improvements at Winton?

NSW government about to spend a bllion dollars on ball sports.

AFL in Vic looking for hundreds of millions as well

Every Motorsport fan should be behind this

Why are you so surprised at something as common as wind and rain? In the recent West Australian State budget Crown Cassino were given an $18m tax break designed to help attract high-roller gamblers. The treasurer then said "We did nothing more than match what they did at the casino in Melbourne and Sydney".

Well actually in Melbourne it was something like $250m and it was from a fricking caretaker government.
