Floods de­lay track work

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Motorsport -

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.
