RIP China?

It looks like the China round won't happen this year according to TC.
Looks like Phillip Island is coming back.

Quote from www.ten-tenths.com

"TC opened his address to the launch of the V8 season this morning by assuring everyone that China really will happen ... then spent the next 5 minutes creating an escape for himself and AVESCO to announce at Eastern Creek that it won't go ahead.

He talked about the difficulties, and that "if" it can't be brought to fruition this year we'll definitely get it for next year ..."

Re: RIP China?

... and absolutely no loss.
Until the (so called) heartland is looked after rather than Tony Cockroach and his Sydney based chardonnay sipping, latte crowd then the whole overseas thing is a complete crock.

Mind you I'd have loved to see the little termite backpeddaling!

Re: RIP China?

Good.

Honestly who the hell wanted a Championship round there anyway? Other than the one obvious person...

Bring back Phillip Island, bring on the Auckland CBD Street race!!! (click below)

Re: RIP China?

I'd rather the V8's go to China than Auckland, you have a round, give someone else a go, An Auckland street race will benefit Auckland and thats it no one else, just like the America's Cup, maybe if u do get a street race then the money you get from it could go towards the roads only Aucklanders use but the whole country has to pay for it

A race in the South Island or Taupo is a much better idea, and Wellington, but i dont think it will happen in Wellington in a hurry

Re: RIP China?

What a good move. Why the hell go to China, doesnt interest me in watching it just because it's in china....arent V8's too big for their liking anyway? (and no pshh sounds)

As long as they fix up safety issues associated with PI, it's one of the best racing and viewing tracks in the country. Wonder if it has anything to do with Lindsay Fox buying it

Re: RIP China?

yeah but keep in mind the costs involved to get each team overseas, some teams are struggling to make ends meet... a race in China is a waste of time and a hell of a lot of money. Good riddance I say...
