    Wagga is an easy as piss drive from Sydney or Melb, major highways all the way and almost all of it dual carriageway. Make a weekend of it, easy.

      The eventual succes of this is going to depend on the circuit itself, if it is a ripper then people will come. Let's hope it it is fast and flowing with some tricky bits thrown in, like an Eau Rouge

      Wakefield reminds me of Morgan Park although the new extension to MP is more like how a proper race circuit should be. MP is also owned and run by a club with govmint subsidies, I doubt very much if it would be 'commercially viable' if privately owned.

        The attitude of the owner in the firs 12 months will make or break it really

          For any tight arse ADF people, I reckon you could swindle a cheap (<$20) room at the raaf base if you say you're on defence travel, would make it a very cheap weekend.

            I really don't think that the drive from sydney is going to be top of the agenda for them. From what i have heard, NRMA and AAMI are really trying to push their driver training. If you take out a policy with them, they offer you a free driver training course which takes place in canberra. Word getting around is that the government is going to make driver training courses mandatory for all new drivers, and they are looking for a venue to host such courses. This wagga track is going to be the high priority for this scheme. Thats why they are trying to push the track as a driver training facility. Also, the guy behind the v8 supercar experience has offered to sign a 10 year lease for the track to run his cars on it. Also the amount of companies and organizations who have come out of the woodwork and showed interest is surprising. Auspost, for instance has, has showed interest for a training facility for all their bike posties, as currently they dont have any kind of training facility... stuff like this is what they are aiming for.

              this circuit will never be viable without more swedes.

              who gives a fuck if Sydney doesn't want to turn up?? it is probably doing everyone a favour.

                I don't really see every new driver getting sent to Wagga for a driving course tho.. How bout the govco make changes to the driving test procedure instead...

                  Mallala is only an hour away from Adelaide, and a stones throw from the Barossa. It's also the only racetrack available for regular circuit racing in SA.... that makes it very fucking viable even if some of the facilities are past their use by date (they are a step up from Morgan Paark though).

                        Just signed petition, it closes in 8 days, i was number 114 to sign.
                        I think they are going to need a shitload more to sign their approval.
                        Pf community get behind this.
                        For us Qlders lets face it, Wagga via the Newell hwy is just a little bit further driving time than Brisbane to Eastern creek

                        I travel interstate five times a year to race, Wagga is quite do-able.
                        Carnts need to sign!
                        if you get this far after reading the above, good on you!
                        If i make spelling mistakes, syntax errors, or just mss letters in words, it is because i am lw vision/vision impaired.
                        Dont drive or race no more. Bit of a cunt of a thing.
                        I cant see what keys my fingers hit when i type.
                        Its called Cone and Rod Dystrophy, un fixable, i get worse, its a hereditary cunt f a thing.

                                Build something on the central coast IMO. A track at wagga is just a stones throw from all the Victorian tracks, only it's harder to get to. If they build a good facility then it will of course be great but there is a huge black hole north of Sydney where there is nothing at all. There has to be better opportunity there than at wagga.

                                Any track is a good thing but if I had the money to invest in a race track then I would throw all of it at the central coast/Newcastle or look at upgrading one of the 3546655643 tracks that Vic already has.
