This info is from the Adelaide Motorplex website.


28th March 2010 - The Consortium will be having a meeting tomorrow (Monday 29th) to see if Mr Rann "can help out with some land"

29th March 2010 - The message from the meeting today is extremely positive for Gillman. Whilst we have a lot of work to do now - at least it is going forward. We must now and have agreed to, undertake the relevant studies upon written assurances from the Government that the land will be made available should we meet all necessary criteria. I can't stress enough how positive this is for the Motorplex and must thank the Premier for taking the time out of his busy schedule to listen to the advantages of having a Motorplex here in Adelaide.

7th April 2010 - It has come to attention that a "Letter/Flyer" has or is being distributed via a Letter Box Drop around the Grange area. It talks about Environmental and Noise Pollution concerns from supposedly concerned residents within the area. Its entirety is based on ill informed and ignorant facts that is completely against the mantra of the Adelaide Motorplex!

I want everyone to know that under instruction, I have handed a copy of this document to the Police yesterday for investigation. Needless to say that this document is not signed, except for the guise that is it from Concerned Residents Against the Motorplex (C.R.A.M.S.). The concerns that I have is that the document contains not 1, but 2 commecial Logos - 1. Paint Supplies and
2. City Dismantlers.
Both used without permission and/or authority. This is totally illegal I assure you all, that if caught we will prosecute all parties involved!
I ask all of you living in particularly the Grange area to keep a vigilant look out and either report any information to either myself or the Police.

To the people concerned - GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT

16th May 2010 - The process is now at a stage where there is little news and there are few updates to make. The Consortium is ploughing through the "red-tape", Meetings, Paperwork, Tests etc, etc. Of course we wouldn't be in this position without the staunch supporters and helpers, so have faith and updates will be made when there is progress to report.

21st June 2010 - We all know that it taking a long time, but there is no recent news to report, red-tape is still being waded through and Anna will give an update when there is something tangible to report. All we can do is encourage you to watch the site or join the Facebook Group to show support and keep updated.

24th July 2010 - We know it is frustrating, but there is still nothing solid to report, no progress but no knockbacks either, keep an eye on the Facebook page or the "Messages of Support" page for any updates by Anna.

11th September 2010 - Hi Everyone, I know that it has been a while but I ask that everyone remain patient as things are still moving in a "favorable" (seems to be the word of the day) direction. Meetings/Negotiations are still continuing, all be it at a snails pace but, never the less in the right direction.
I would like to take this opportun...ity to thank everyone for your positive support on this site to date, and ask for your continued support and comments as it is still being "observed"! I apologize for not being able to elaborate further on any of the issues and hope that you understand that this stage we are operating "under a cone of silence". As soon as we can break the "code of silence", I promise you will be the first to know.
As a side note - we have a few things happening after this month so stay tuned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anna Micheel.

31st October 2010 - I have been restricted as to what I can make public. Minister Conlon considers comments made publicly by myself to be and I quote: "misleading and unhelpful in the context of current discussions". I won't go into the whys and wherefores as it really does not achieve anything, but will state that all I have said in the past is the TRUTH - something it would appear that the Government do not like to hear. The Government has subsequently banned me from attending any meetings, or should I say do not invite me to any meetings - obviously I asked the embarrassing questions!

Anyway - the good news is that on Thursday there was a meeting held which was to evaluate if the Adelaide Motorplex Project is eligible for a Case Manager to be appointed - we will be advised in the next few days by letter.
Do I think this is a positive move? I simply don't know! Unfortunately we have been lied to and strung along so much over the last 3 years - who knows.
Where do we go from here - we ramp up the fight!

Get you T-Shirts out of moth balls and start parading them proudly.

We have a few things in mind but need to work on them and plan them well.

I would like to thank everyone who stopped and enquired about the Motorplex at the Extreme Horsepower Show - it was great to catch up and see you all.

I will finish with this statement to the Government - I will not be intimidated/bullied by you in any way, shape or form. Adelaide needs a Motorplex and I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL WE GET ONE!

My question to you, the Government is - When will you wake up to this fact?

I will post another update in a few days.

Anna Micheel

1st December 2010 - Hi Guys,
Just a small update - yes there has been a case manager appointed - but don't get too excited just yet as we are still moving ever so slowly!
We are at present looking at contracting specialists whose expertise is in the handling of the Acid Sulphate in the soil, as that is now and will be, our biggest hurdle, b...eside the Government, that is!
I have suggested that the Consortium handles it in the same manner as the LMC and EPA handled the problem down at the Newport Quays Project!!!!!!!!

I'll give you a tip. Untill you guys get serious with the whole fleet of drag cars in S.A on trailers parked out the front of parliament house, the pollies aren't even going to bat an eyelid. Govt has no time for boy racer hoons demanding a safe place to run a muck but they'll consider bending over backwards for multi million dollar group 1 teams.

I'll also give you another. Approval for these things is a long and drawn out process. Progress doesn't happen on a day to day basis. If I was on the negotiating party I'd have the s**t with your level of coverage as one bad day in the boardroom can do more harm than good if it is incorrectly reported.

Sorry to say but attention wise its not even a drop in the pond. Its not newsworthy until the commercial stations take it on board and I read about it in the Herald from the other side of the country. Looks like it only got a bit of local coverage. I bet half of Adelaide don't even know about this issue.
Its good that you guys had one of the ANDRA directors turn up but I did not see any of the big hitters in Australian drag racing in attendance. A couple of group 3 runners amongst the ranks but none of the guys with the real influence. When the push was on for WSID to be built all of the key pitched in. Bray, Reed, Sainty, Cowin. When these guys protest. National coverage is guaranteed, and so is an army of followers. When you have machinery parked out the front of parliament house that has a combined total worth greater than the state budget people will finally take notice of the enormity of the situation. Having said that you guys already have clipsal so its a bit hard to top that.

How long till the SA govt election? Since Raan won't make it an election issue now is the time for you guys to force his hand and make it an election issue for him. The only problem is that it might backfire. I read the comments in that article and it seems that Adelaide is overpopulated by green hippies with single digit IQ's and a life membership to the motorsport = hoon mantra. these people will vote against motorsport till the day they die, regardless of who is in power.

You guys have an uphill battle and I wish you all the best of luck.

15th February 2011 -
Hi Everyone,
Here is an update - the Adelaide Motorplex Proposal continues to have EVERY hurdle known to mankind placed in front of it by the Government. Whilst the Consortium have had several meetings with Government Representatives/Officials - most have just been lip service, including with the newly appointed Case Manager. At the same time, the Consortium have also had meetings with Specialist Consultants dealing in Noise, Flooding, Acid Sulphate etc which have all been extremely productive, positive and helpful.

In saying this - have we ever been officially requested by the Government for the results of/or for studies to be undertaken - NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! So if you hear of our Premier/Ministers stating in the Media, as has been said, that the Government is waiting on results from studies - you know that this is a blatant untruth!!!!!!!!!!

By the way - I have now been excluded from a lot of these Government meetings as apparently my comments are considered unhelpful to the cause. I want everyone to know that I have ever only stated the truth and asked the blatant obvious!!!!! I will not cease to ask the obvious, nor will I be intimidated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway back to the Motorplex - Watch out for an article in the Portside Messenger this week. There is apparently an interview with the newly appointed Motorsport Minister, Mr Foley, where he states that there are too many noise issues with the Motorplex to proceed. I find this comment perplexing if accurate, as Mr Foley has not met with the Consortium since his appointment, nor spoken with the Consortium on not only the noise issue, but on any issue!!!!!!!!!!! He obviously is more informed than any of the experts who all say that the Motorplex is "doable"!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where to from here - organizing a Rally that will not only involve Competitors and Motorsport Fans from South Australia, but Interstate as well. I intend to also invite other disenchanted groups such as the Public Service sectors, Loggers etc - the bigger the better! The intent will be to block/slow every entrance into Adelaide and bring the city to a standstill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"We have played nicely for tooooooo long.

For this to be successful though it is up to you - ARE YOU WITH ME?????????????????????

WE CAN WIN THIS BATTLE - REMEMBER THE GOVERNMENT WORKS FOR YOU - THE VOTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anna Micheel

Time Friday, March 18 · 4:00pm - 7:00pm

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Location Parliament House, North Terrace, Adelaide

Created By Adelaide Motorplex, Glenn Stankevicius

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

More Info Time to make some noise, block the streets and show what a force Labor is dealing with.
Got work? Try to get an hour or two off.
Got Kids? Get someone to mind them.
Interstate? Buy a plane ticket :D

Motorsports is big part of SA, we even have a new Minister specifically for it, but the Government won't listen and are IGNORING YOU, so we need to speak louder.
If your REALLY want a Motorplex you will go out of your way to spend a couple of hours at this Rally.

Please forward and invite as many people as possible, time to stop being the silent majority and get out there in force.

Matt when the article in the portside messenger is available can you post up a link or scan it and upload or something like that?


Nothing pisses me off more than pollies and other servants who hide from their moral obligations and responsibilities. I've been chastised for less.
