Newcastle Motor Racing Complex owned and run by Newcastle MG Car Club, is a 290 acre motorsport complex, they are currently have a 500m bitumen sealed hillclimb course and an unsealed Khanacross circuit.

Newcastle MG Car Club is future plans of extending their hillclimb track and the Club is engaged in discussions with a Racing Promoter to develop an international standard dragstrip, and a sealed racing circuit of approximately 2.5 km.

Now this is where they need "your support", the Port Stephens Council has put up more hurdles and other groups are against it, so the Newcastle MG Car Club needs people to write or email their support for the Motorsport complex.

This is a great cause to get behind, it has taken many years to get this up an going, and we always seem to get a stone throw away and then some twits put another wall in the way.

Posted up all the details a week or so ago, so i'll post it up again.

http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=39845

Hopefully an email or a letter could be sent by you to the council stating your support for
the project. (Information to assist you to do this has been attached).

Before you type out your submission, click on “Forward”, delete old addresses at the top of
this email message, change my name at the bottom to yours and forward this on from you, to
all in your address book & ask them to do the same and so on.

We need this to be an overwhelming response to the council.

This needs to be done before the 20th April 2008.







Facts that may be mentioned, preferably in your own words:

 The revised plans seem to be designed to minimise the affects on all the threatened species populations, their habitats and the ecological communities. The proposed planting of additional flora and trees will significantly enhance the quality of all the Endangered Ecological Community areas.
 Venue for safe Senior & Junior driver development.
 Venue for awareness & defensive driving training.
• Police, Fire, Ambulance & Australia Post.
• High School driver education programs.
• Corrective Services (from the court system).
 Increased tourism, revenue and employment for the Raymond Terrace and surrounding areas.
 Venue for drivers from Central Coast, Newcastle, Upper & lower Hunter Mid North Coast as well as Port Stephens to compete in club level motorsport in a safe & controlled environment.
 Venue for Hunter region bicycle road race training & events (safe & off the roads).
 The land is already council approved and used for motorsport (including the drag strip in 1989)
 It would seem that Military Noise is more of a concern in the proposed Kings Hill development than any perceived noise problem from upgrading the Ringwood Park facility.

This may be your last chance to give your opinion to the council. Don’t let all our effort of the past seven years be in vain.

This effort has already cost over three quarters of a million dollars let alone the half million dollars plus, cost to the PSC. Much of this could have been used to upgrade the facility.

Also tell the council that you like to address the court about your concerns. (objectors, such as the C.R.A.B.S., group will be doing so). We must not be outnumbered.

Written letters or emails (submissions) must contain your name, address and phone number & have to be received by the council before the 20 April 2008.

Post letters to Emails send to

DA NO: 16-2002-42-1 council@portstephens .nsw.gov.au
Scott Anson Attention Scott Anson
P.O. BOX 42
Raymond Terrace NSW 2324 also cc to
Ringwood-park-submissions@hotmail.com
(this will allow us to monitor the submissions the
council receives)

All the help we can get on this is greatly needed.

Yeah I noticed that after it was posted, but the thing is the council seems to find a few more hurdles to put up, so if the support keeps flooding in it will help.
