An Aus­tralian TT?

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

A Syd­ney-based com­pany, In­side Line Events In­ter­na­tional, has an­nounced an am­bi­tious plan to stage the Sun­shine Coast In­ter­na­tional TT – an Isle of Man style race over a 47km course link­ing the Queens­land towns of Maleny, Bald Knob, Cro­hamhurst, Beer­wah, Peach­ester and Wootha. The TT is the brain­child of au­thor and for­mer ad­ver­tis­ing agency owner David Rollins, who spent his early years work­ing as a jour­nal­ist for the long-gone Revs Mo­tor­cy­cle News mag­a­zine. An on-line video pro­duced to gauge in­ter­est has at­tracted more than 500,000 views, and a series of pub­lic meet­ings will be held where Rollins and lo­cal coun­cil­lors will pro­vide de­tails of the event to res­i­dents. It’s an ex­cit­ing con­cept which has so far re­ceived cau­tious sup­port from res­i­dents, busi­nesses and lo­cal gov­ern­ment, and a date of De­cem­ber 2017 is pro­posed for the stag­ing of the race. Rollins hopes the event will at­tract TT spe­cial­ists from UK, Ire­land, New Zealand as well as Aus­tralia. Watch this space!
