The same news piece is suggesting that Phillip Island might be the only Vic venue, as Winton isn't supposedly up to the lofty standards that Supercars deserves.

EDIt: Sandown might have an unlikely white knight.

Chatting with a former board member of a club I worked at the other (who also has ties to Racing Victoria) he said that the sale will definitely go ahead and they are pushing for it sooner rather than later so horsepower of both the equine and mechanical kind will cease to be

I really do hope that it gets heritage listed and therefore can stay as a race track, but I honestly don't like the chances.

Is it possible we will know before the running of this years event?

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.
