    Almost all of my posts are tongue in cheek and aimed to raise a few peoples heart rates.

    However, having lived in W.A. for over 30 years, and having witnessed the loss of Rally, Redbull Air Race, Claremont Speedway, RAC/AHG, Atlantis, ASBK (twice, so there is some hope), Supercars, Street races on bikes and Cars in country towns (feel free to add more of your own) I consider my viewpoint not defeatist, but bone chillingly on point.

    Perth is a comical (or should that be criminal?) waste of land and time. It remains what it always has been as one of the most expensive retirement villages on the planet, where people simply look forward to dying because it'll give them something to fucking do.

    IMHO I reckon ...(they) MA/MWA WASCC are waiting ...too.

    Waiting on the privately funded new track/training/race craft complex to appear , as if by magic... so they can attempt to subvert that as well... my 2c.

    Someone out there knows something.....everyone out there is staying tight lipped... in the hope that a "slip of the tongue" won't cost them millions in compo claims....

    I choose my words very carefully.....at least I use my option to have an opinion ....on here...(which is less of a public arena that some other forms of comm.)

    Do you still live in WA? I for one like Perth, no it's not perfect but tell me where is and I'm sure I could point out some negatives about wherever as well, it pisses me off when people whinge about something with no realism, in case you hadn't noticed Perth is the one of themost geographically isolated cities in the world and we happened to have a small state debt problem at the moment

    so ...you have a job..?

    Own a house..?

    Help out at the local refuge on weekends..?

    Sponsor a youth sport/improvement program.?

    Love life...and get involved..?

    stating facts isn't "Whingeing"

    Did you consider some people might just see their lives in WA different to you.?

    I don't support--- or sabotage ... I just comment...is all.. "hugs n kisses" as well we should all do.

    It's this bit that annoyed me, I get Turbo is annoyed at something but this bit isn't "facts"

    Did a ride day with them (hence on their mailing list) but a golf buggy crossing the track less than 100m in front of me (while the session was green) and a rider left buried in the Basin sand trap has tainted my view on the organisational capabilities of that particular vendor.

    You're right though, I should unsubscribe to that list.

    I have seen shit with each provider that, on their own, would leave you feeling the same way.
    I have had many more positive outings with camps (and the others) than bad days.
    All I've got and more for #294...RIP Chris Adley
