V8 BID LIVES

Townsville Bulletin - - Front Page -

TOWNSVILLE’S V8 Su­per­car bid is back on the ta­ble. Sports Min­is­ter Andrew Fraser made an un­sched­uled visit to the city yes­ter­day to speak with lo­cal busi­ness­men and Mayor Tony Mooney about the bid, which had ear­lier been scut­tled. He told the group the bid was still alive, but that it would take a private con­sor­tium or the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment to come up with the $10 mil­lion short­fall be­fore the much-pub­li­cised event had a hope of get­ting off the ground.
