calder park

greetings all
sorry if this has been posted before but i just found it on the engine room web site

Australian National Drag Racing Association (ANDRA) CEO, Tony Thornton, and Bob Jane, owner of Melbourne's Calder Park Race Track and Adelaide International Raceway (AIR), have jointly announced that positive, useful discussions are taking place to resolve a range of difficult issues between the parties.

This possible resolution has been brought about mainly by two recent developments. The first was the resolution of a multi-million dollar public liability claim, which could have wiped out both ANDRA and Bob Jane.

The second issue is the major sponsorship interest generated by the imminent opening of the new Western Sydney International Dragway (WSID) in 2004. This will bring ANDRA Championship Drag Racing back to Sydney after a period of 6 years. In addition to Sydney, Calder Park and AIR have been out of drag racing for 3 years.

Tony Thornton said today that the focus on national competition was essential. "Corporate support of teams, events and venues is vital to the continued development of drag racing in Australia." he said. Melbourne and Adelaide are important factors in that and ANDRA is anxious to maximise opportunities."

Final decisions are expected by late January.

For further information, contact:
Tony Thornton - ANDRA CEO (08) 8271 5355
Bob Jane - owner of Calder Park Raceway and Adelaide International Raceway (03) 8329 0700


regards
rod

ROD the news is good $25 to $30million is on the cards for Calder and Adelaide raceways.

Re: calder park

Thats good news. I think it's important for the govt to get behind it too, with all this talk of hoons, speeding, illegal street racing etc the implementation of a 1st class site for people to race their cars legally is a good idea. Perhaps even a smaller but similar track on the eastern side of the city for street racers on that side?

good point..maybe they can limit it to street cars to limit noise for the surrounding suburbs if each week

Just on the subject of the drags being on telly today, it's great to see motorsport coming out into the fray moreso these days. When i was younger i was always out at Calder watching the top fuellers and it was always good and non-stop racing all afternoon & night, till the track went downhill. Now drag racing and V8 supercars are becoming very popular and it's good seeing the media taking advantage of it
