I'm gonna take a stab at Werribee. But Victar bray has no credibility to the sport, I couldn't even find him in a google search.*

Was it your mate JBB, or just a post you copy&pasted from somewhere else? Cos if you did, I'd run it through a spell check.

As for the rumour, why would VB say somthing like it is confirmed when there doesn't seem to be any land put aside, no announcements from anyone saying they are going to set up another strip in Vic, and no council applications (that I can find) for any building out there?

Vic does need a track that we can see Group1 drags on, but the best bet is that ANDRA and B.Jane patch things up (when hell freezes over)

There is a drag strip being talked about being built next to the Avalon airport which is just down the road from Werribee.

As with 99.99% of things I hear in motorsport I'll believe it when they actually start building the thing and then 2 years down the track if it's still operating.

It's a shame that Avalon airport is being used by Jetstar cos that runway is 3.5km long and was used by Motor Mag for it's PCoTY high speed stuff for a couple of years until the planes landing got in the way.

I note that Heathcote is up for sale (anyone got a couple of mill to spare??).

there is lots of talk in VIC
problem is Gov wont put money into a "New" Track when there is 2 there already. neither run under ANDRA.

a lot or Private money would have to be pumped into a new track to get it off the ground.
but nothing anytime soon.
Victor may have some inside info, but nothing has leaked out thats positive at the moment

hahaha so very true

but i have a few people that know Dragracing very well. and Vic is a sorry State because of Mr Jane and ANDRA

Maybe if they got rid of the GP some money might be spent on a strip?

Bob Jane was the first to find out how bad the ANDRA Insurance was a few years ago and left him & the extended BJ companies exposed to some very serious legal action after a nasty accident at Calder.

ANDRA was and proably still is very like CAMS and didn't care so Bob pulled the pin on competition drag racing at Calder & AIR as a result. That's the whole story in a few sentences.

As a side story there will be bugger all going on at Calder in July & August as the work to move the race track away from the drag strip is programmed to occur at that time as well as move the concrete walls closer to the strip to make it safer by getting rid of the grass verge.

It's good thing the work waited until after the AMRC to move the drag strip walls, otherwise the radical that crossed the line backwards would have gone into the wall.
