Looks like wanners will be around for a while longer if this gets the nod. lets hop a part of the $27mil will go to a "driftland"!!!! :pinchme:


The Department of Sport and Recreation is promoting a $27 million upgrade of Barbagallo Raceway that will not only retain the annual V8 Supercars meeting but allow the circuit to stage international events.

This has been talked about before on driftwa. There is a pic of the track design on there if you can find it, although it was many MANY months ago.

I hope it goes ahead, but I wont hold my breath

i spoke to big dave about this at wanners. he said to me that there is pretty much all lights go on this except for the issue of council property and what barbs is aloud to have.
he said pretty much the government doesnt really wanna give them any land

hrrm i can see the dilemma , tourism/race day dollars vs bit of land that guys motorbike on illegally.

Really a no brainer.

Hopefully they will also pool the funds that were to go into that new track they proposed for Dowerin. Coz man collie is far enough damn it, we dont need to be driving another 40 mins for a track day if this falls through!
