I have been approached by Ross Nielsen, proprietor of Focus Prestige Motor Body Works, to assess interest in supporting a proposal for a new road race circuit on the Central Coast. Ross tells me that he was initially approached by the Deputy (?) Mayor of Gosford, and he is in the process of gathering support from the local motor industry, including bikes, to run up a combined front of support for the proposal. At this stage I havenâ€™t quizzed Ross too deeply on this with regards to approvals and financing. He did reinforce to me that there is encouragement from both Wyong and Gosford Councils. Ross has asked that I distribute this throughout the motorcycle community, to garner support from industry players. He asks that interested parties write to him via email email@example.com indicating what you perceive the benefits of such a proposal would be to you, the community, and the coast in general. One benefit I see straight up that plays into the police and politicians hands, is getting road racers off the Old Road and onto a controlled environment. Other obvious benefits would be to rider/driver training efforts, general industry development that would go hand in hand with racing, as well as the boost to our local economy. I am confident that others could add myriads of other uses that donâ€™t quite come to mind at the moment! Ross is arranging a photo shoot with some interested parties for 29 January. We at Image have committed to supplying 3 bikes for the shoot along with myself and other staff dressed in corporate garb. He indicated that he would welcome as many in the industry to this shoot as we can organise. Anyone interested, please send me a PM, or contact me on 0410 741066. This would be great to make happen, and the fact that the local pollies kicked this off shows that this may go further than previous abortive efforts such as the proposal for the Newcastle Speedway site!
