Homebush street circuit for V8's?

Hi guys, I heard that V8 Supercars will be attempting to organise a street race in Homebush to replace the Oran Park round, as Oran has been sold and is going to be turned into townhouses. The other rumour is that Oran park is going to be replicated a few km's away from it's current site, although I'd say this is less likely.. I'm hangin on some more info.. Anyone know anything?

Found this on an F1 website. Looks like a few tracks might be doomed!!

OUT: Oran Park (demolished), Albert Park (non-champ F1 support race on a rival network to channel 7), Pukehoe (too small, safety concerns), Winton (word is that a long-term future there is questionable).

IN: Townsville (street circuit), Homebush (street circuit), Hamilton NZ (street circuit), Eastern Creek (despite the small crowds, I expect it to be back in future).

Oran Park is a family owned business, I have read somewhere that the Manager has stated where to the track is being re-located to, it is going a little further south. He did post this info somewhere, I will try to track it down.

As far as Winton is concerned, never believe what you hear, it has some of the best paddock facilites for the V8's of any permanent circuit in Australia, unfortunatley the gate numbers don't dictate to V8SCA where they should go, Winton has some of the best spectator numbers of any permanent track going.

I have also heard that the article where the Homebush thing was talked about was a bit of a beat-up by the Journo concerned, the NSW Gvmt hasn't decided on anything is what I have heard.

Yea id love it to be at Homebush, just round the corner.

And street circuits have always been popular in different forms of motorsport. If it does go ahead, will be a great boost for Sydney

Definitely, they reckon it'd be worth 10 million tourism dollars over 3 years!
And it would mean F1 would prob look at it as a street race option as well..

Piss-poor attendance.. If more people had gone to the 8's at the Creek, they would have continued racing there. They might return if Oran is closed though..
Hope so...
