Celebrating 6 years to the day since this topic was created without any posts since.

So does that mean all is well with eligibility on race tracks??

I guess it is self evident.
The tracks that are not eligible are no longer used.
I would love to see Calder in use again but I fear it is not going to happen.

What are the issues with Calder? Any news on the possible track at Avalon?

The main issue with Calder is that the drag cars have soaked the track with their tyre lubricant (which I think is kero based) from Gloweave onwards for about 100 metres of the front straight. With the slightest bit of rain it becomes a skating rink, far too dangerous for bikes and decidedly hazardous for cars.
Bob did have plans for creating a new front straight running parallel to the existing straight but I fear that the cost of domestic bliss coupled with Rodney's concern for his father's well being curtailed the plan.

Avalon is. as far as I know, still an option, but is dependent on financial contributions to get it happening.
This is unlikely to occur unless Albert Park gets scrapped as a venue for F1.

I heard recently that Calder has CAMS approval again (????). What about Sandown, or Haunted Hills/Bryant Park in Gippsland?
Cheers, Tony.
