Re: new track planned for perth! yay!

they tried to build it at the airport but that didnt work so they're trying it in oakford. oakford is around where nicholson road meets thomas road, and its not far from where anketell road meets thomas either.

its several kays up the road(heading east) from the motorplex. at least i wont have to drive all the way up to wanneroo!

its not specifically for the V8s but it's inevitable that they'll come since they visit every other(suitable) raceway in the country.

Unfortunately, its gonna mean a massve trek for me to get to the V8's now, if they build this circuit.

Ill prefer it tho, if its better accomodated than Barbagello, and theres easier access to get in. It's the only reason why i wont goto the V8's on a sunday, cos its so jammed up with traffic.

Re: new track planned for perth! yay!

It has been discussed in our local rag a few times. People already complaining about noise, etc.
The answer was, wait till a proposal has been put up and get the facts first.

As JMartion says, fur us in the southern area it will be fairly close. Wanneroo is miles away from us, so it would be a nice change to have one a bit closer. Bearing in mind with all these new freeways being built or old ones being extended, travelling times and ease of access gets better all the time

Re: new track planned for perth! yay!

Yeah but for us North people the Motorplex is a bit of a hike, Wanneroo as much as its a pain in the ass on Supercar weekend, its close.

Still think we should have a Street race.
