    We all want more motorsport and facilities.

    How do we achieve this?

    $Money$

    There was a time a TAB would operate at Claremont speedway.

    I think it is time we all started gambling on whatever the TAB has available motorsport wise and join PETA to get horse racing banned.

    See where I am going?

    After so many posts of Ďrumoursí that may have made me look like some sort of insane madman, it looks like It might actually live.

    I may actually wet my pants....

    Edit: CAMS. And MA get the mentions.

    Wonder if the GT series being there rumour might come to fruition as well. 💖

    So know that the public comment deadline has come and gone, it would be interesting to see how big the opposition is...

    there was a public comment meeting the other night, apparently 100 or so people attended and there's a lot of opposition.
    the roads leading to it leave a lot to be desired, the main access is a very rough single lane road, there's a few other roads in but all are gravel. there would be some serious issues with the ground conditions, as that area is fairly low and nasty clay...there'd be a lot of building up of land to be carried out before you'd even think about building a track. another issue is the runoff into the drain running across the southern boundary, then into the serpentine river. certain people are worried about runoff of petrochemicals and even rubber into the drain, so all runoff would need to be trapped and treated in some way. not to mention the 5 residences within 1km of the boundaries.....and a couple of those residents are the biggest whingers you're ever likely to experience!
    comment i had from the old boy was that they would've been better off buying the property 1k up the road, which is larger and all sand.
    personally, i see it going the same route as all the other proposed motorsports venues ie nowhere

    Have you read the proposal? The amount of research and work having gone into that is second to none. This track is exactly what the shire needs to bolster income and funding going into the future.

    Public comments open until the 22nd I believe.

    Second to none? Do proper background work on the proposal and stop looking at it from an engineering perspective. Look at it from a business perspective and I doubt you would be impressed.

    Chief wiggam's comments raise valid issues. How will they address site issues and build that track for the budget?

    Have you considered to long term value of future development after the usable life of the facility?

    A lot of people believe the Sahins are only really building Tailem Bend so they have their own private playground to crash their Lamborghiniís. Maybe whoever is behind this is thinking the same.

    Honestly who gives a shit weather the developers have their sums right or their reasons for doing it. If they are prepared to do this out of their own pocket support it. If you donít your yet one of the many why nothing ever happens in this state.

    No doubt there are some issues. Iíd be surprised is any proposal anywhere went through without some conditions or forced amendments.

    It isn't a business proposal that they are putting to the bank... If you asses the works proposal as a business proposition no wonder it doesn't look very good.

    Bullshit Nick. You show alarming ignorance of investment and finance. Doing engineering drawings is the easy part of this. That is why Scott's new track proposal was a joke. The big challenge is bringing a business proposal to life. The fact that you don't even recognise this speaks volumes. The MBA course was devised to address a lack of management and leadership skill among engineers.

    I've already raised with you privately some issues with this proposal and have offered to give you more detail, but you didn't take it up. I'm not going into the detail on public forum.

    Neil, your emails only addressed that the Stati group was new and little was known and that it doesn't fill you with confidence, you haven't sent me anything other than that regarding the new track.
    If you have so much more information, please, feel free to share it, educate us a little. I show alarming levels of ignorance about investment and finance because 1) I'm an engineer and finance/accounting wasn't my topic of study, 2) I'm relatively fresh out of uni and 3) I'm not exposed to it enough to actually learn about it. I have some awareness on the topics but forgive me if I don't have the life experience and exposure to the topic that you do.

    I'm not trying to attack you, but far out, you, Kev and Carlo seem take every comment so personally and as an attack. I'm not trying to fight you all with every word I say. Why can't we just have a civil discussion instead of a yelling match.

    Clearly no-one in Oil and Gas has done an MBA.

    Both valid points and so far my rumour factory has been quiet as a Mouse since word got out.

    What I was shown , and I wish I had suppressed my glee just that little bit more at the time in order to pay more attention, was the position advertised for some sort of full time planning and infrastructure officer , for the responsible Shire.

    Such a small Shire needing a position of this kind seems to indicate fairly serious intent. Whether this site or another is already penciled in somewhere I have no idea, but it would be exciting and hopefully a positive move for the advancement of the WA racing scene...

    Iím not far of flogging our place and moving way South, so if anything IS announced, it will no doubt be on the day of our settlement. 😩
