Awesome, but why tear out Oran park to build a raceway 10mins away

A housing estate development can make a motza.

Starting off 10 mins away (on rural land), may attract another development later on > earn another motza

Ummm, looking at the plans looks like a 600m track and a 1000m track.

At that length good for carts /drift. Too short for a real circuit.

I believe when mr parish sold Oran park the deal was that the track must be relocated at that time it was supposed to be Wilton but never happened so I agree something is better than nothing as Oran park was used 364 days a year I'm told.

Guys are happy to race at Marulan. I would be excited to race there and only travel 1/3 of the distance. Seen it on facebook a few times asking for suggestions and comments. A skid pan/peanut for drifts was suggested a lot.

Bit short at the moment....I can see the track has also been inspired by Tsukuba (albeit 795 metres shorter)...but definitely too short so not sure it will really get the adrenalin rushing as probably wont hit very high speeds.

Could probs see the track being extended in the future due to people complaining about it being to short.

havnt been to marulan, but have heard you cant get alot of speed up around that course, and its pretty popular.

maybe going for a smaller circuit to cut high speed incidents?

Any track is a good track in my mind.

And, you will surely learn more about car control at a short, tight track like Marulan than you will at a quick, open track like Phillip Island or Eastern Creek. You can go fast on those big tracks but it doesn't even really feel that fast on a wide track with big run offs.

You need to go to MDTC, and then tell me how it won't get your adrenalin going.
