    The pertinent comments are:

    "Major safety issues need to be fixed so we get back on track."

    and
    "- The track re-inspection process, independent track audit and decision making process must run their course. We cannot rush them."

    Other than that, a lot of emotionally charged comment but no elucidation of the why and when.

    I'm not saying it is a feasible option in reality, but would the extensions / upgrades for Collie take it to a level where it could host an Aus super bike round? (The track, not saying the facilities are up to that level)
    I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people, I'm just saying lets remove all the warning lables and let the problem sort itself out...

    Not unless they make it about 2 meters wider...

    Length is not the issue. Width is. Much like when women talk about cocks.

    Conversely motorcycling is killing motorcyclists, and that is why the track is now unavailable to motorcycles.

    The roads are still open to go crane our necks there if you choose.
    And maybe research why the track is closed.
    Be absolutely sure of your claim as to why its closed.

    The reason bikes are banned is WASCC banned them , and I would bet that came about from legal advise , unless the new independent safety report counters the Hall report and even then it will take some convincing to change the legal advise without major works at the track

    I really think people should get behind the track mods instead of attacking the people trying to improve the track

    3 months since the track closure and fuckall has been done by the so called bodies that look after motorcycles at barbagallo. Just like typical politicians, enquiry after enquiry because they don't like what they hear. There is to much contradiction in the useless words on Facebook (I'm not on Facebook only on here).


    All the people that have voluntarily gone and helped with the temp upgrades are champions

    I hope Scott52 gets the other track off the ground. He is man enough to let anyone ride there. Not like the post where somebody will remind certain people of having an opinion.

    The one question I would like to know is how can MA license the track for racing yet WASSC won't let any motorcycle on the track, racing or advanced rider training?

    Dry your eyes this was about sponsorship deadlines.

    Of course you don't read facts on Facebook you just bleat on about the fucker who closed the track.

    "Do you want a safer track?"

    "Well yes, but it's been 100 days whaaa, whaaa, whaaa..."

    That seems to be the way it's going...

    The "we want our track back" group can not deny they would like a safer better track...

    But they don't want to wait for it...

    What a lot of us actually want is access to the track AND some sort of structured plan to actually address safety issues, nothing has changed in the past few years, it is just as dangerous as it was then as it is now. It is just now we have Trakdayz and MCRC loosing their major revenue stream along with every other affected business getting hit, its a small local industry and it doesn't take much to kill it. If you think waiting for track access is bad, try having to wait for the industry to recover.

    This needs to be re-quoted every other comment so it can seep into their heads.

    Apparently its all the DSR's fault

    .

    Kevin McWilliams

    Hi All,
    I wrote this earlier in response to a question in this forum.
    The feedback I received was that this simplified explanation did help people get their heads around the current situation.
    It may be simple - and the issues obviously aren't - but here goes...
    Ok - simple terms, although apparently not this simple...
    DSR have given direction to circuit managers (WASCC) that motorcycle racing is not to continue until it is SAFE to do so.
    MA and MWA rightly say that you cannot achieve SAFE as a standard.
    WASCC have complied with DSR directive and, until it is SAFE, will not let motorcycle racing happen.
    GREY AREA... what about motorcycle training? MA position is 'the track is licensed by MA (the peak body) for full activity - racing included. WASCC between a rock and hard place ATM.
    WHO IS RESPONSIBLE? Where does the responsibility lay if someone gets hurt etc?
    DSR? Gave directive - poorly phrased as they simply do not understand risk and motorsport. Now standing back saying 'wasn't us' etc... election coming and no one wants to address this.
    SOLUTION?
    Get DSR to take responsibility for their poorly phrased directive, amend it to something like - 'as safe as possible' or similar and we move on.
    FUTURE? Ensure that there is a 'user group' or similar with reps from motorcycle and car worlds and ensure there is consultation regarding future works at the track. Get funding - private or government, whoever will stump up the dollars...
    EASY...
    As an observation - personal only - this whole process would work better if there was clear and effective communication all round. Oh, and some flexibility - we cannot continue with the 'Business as usual' approach.
    Why have we got past day 100? Ummmm... another good question.
    This is your life and it's ending one minute at a time

    Pfft, he'd just say "yes" to everything then get told a big fat no by his superiors for speaking out of turn. Then the back-pedalling would begin
    yes, i am ignorant
    yes, i am a prick
    no, i don't care
