Floods delay track work
RECENT floods have prevented resurfacing at Queensland Raceway, but the V8 Supercar round in August will still go ahead. Resurfacing was a condition for the return of the V8 series to Ipswich. However, V8 Supercar spokesman Cole Hitchcock said the delay on the work was ‘‘totally understandable’’. QR owner John Tetley said work had been delayed four times because of weather and the priority need for bitumen to fix flood-damaged roads. ‘‘With the track booked for 90 per cent of the year, resurfacing has been rescheduled for December 18,’’ Tetley said.
