    Start hammering the local members of parliament would be my suggestion.

    It was obvious that was going to happen as soon as the report came in...

    Now we need to see the recommendations to improve the track...

    Hopefully WASCC will now see that they have to spend a dollar to earn a few.

    From what I understand that is approx $450K in lost revenue over a 12 month period, I challenge any business to be able to sacrifice more than half of their annual revenue and survive.

    They certainly won't loose the full $450k as I'm sure a number of the days will be picked up by other users. It will certainly be a significant portion of it though. I know I wouldn't like a pay cut even close to that percentage.

    Oh I don't know... businesses often cut their noses off to spite their faces.

    A few may be very pleased that the task of telling bikes to go fuck themselves has been taken up by another body.

    Whilst I agree its a significant percentage I don't know how you come to the conclusion that it's "more than half"

    glad they are banned. didn't comment on this before, but at my last times out i had a couple of sketchy ventures off track on the ripple strips with obstacles fast approaching.
    Only after reading some of Scott's material did I consider my mortality in context of how lucky it was to recover bike (or rather let the bike correct itself while unable to brake on the surface)
    haven't been there for almost 2 years but will be going to the new SA track when it opens

    Thanks Scott

    And ask for what?
    Build a new track? no. there is no fuckin money in case you have been living under a rock
    To allow someone to build a track? didn't they just put their toe in that pool, and found it got covered in shit?

    MC bodies are as fuckin retarded as WASCC, everything they spin is a total clusterfuck.
    There are ways to get the government to support you, and they might do well to hire someone who knows what the fuck they are doing

    absolutely nothing will happen before election anyhow - other than perhaps empty promises from those who seek election, but have no ability to execute
    caretaker mode starts formally in Jan, but director generals will not make any decisions of substance even from now.

    fuckin i had to get $100k out of one (in a large agency) last week and they were sweating

    Do nothing then?

    That's the spirit.

    From other threads it appears there is money set aside but it requires an independent body to manage it.

    Maybe with your obvious skills you could do something other than snipe?

    Email from the MCRCWA
    The Motorcycle Racing Club of WA has been notified today by Barbagallo Raceway that due to track requirements all events at the circuit have been postponed due to a report released by DSR.

    MA and MWA have welcomed the DSR commissioned report – the Wanneroo Safety Enhancement Assessment.

    Whilst they are assessing the contents of this report Barbagallo management have taken the appropriate precautionary approach of ceasing motorcycle racing activities on this track. They will announce shortly when racing activities will resume.

    As the MCRC currently has no further information on what is in the DSR report we can make no further comment, and we please ask that members and competitors respect the privacy of the families that have suffered this year.

    If you have booked for a RidedaysWA Coaching course in November and December, then you will receive a separate email shortly.

    Please be assured that your Club President and Executive Committee are working together with MWA to find a resolution.

    If you have any further questions regarding the postponement, then please contact Motorcycling WA.

    there aint no public money, go look at the publically available documents.
    find private funding, and I'll happily help. i don't work for free though

    but I'll comp. my fees if not successful in building the public case, strategic integration, cost modeling, playing the politics, and so forth

    PSB is always averse to reality, but consider that 99.9% of the people in this state don't give a fuck. Put yourselves in the shoes of a government, or DG - ask whether your limited efforts are best serviced on the playthings of 0.1% .. if that, of the population? Once you get your head around that problem (which is one of many) then you can start thinking about the solution.

    sorry

    Don't be sorry, it will happen in spite of the negativity and subservience of some.

    Being the 0.1% of population didn't prevent the drag racing community from getting fairly decent facilities....
