The missed opportunity reborn?

Several years ago, A man tried to get interest in AUSCAR, NASCAR, Sportsman, HQ Holden etc going again by having a day at the Thunderdome.

There was interest, lots and lots of interest but unfortunately Calder Park wanted a certain amount of cash up front and the amount was out of reach and the event had to cancelled.

People unaware of the cancellation actually turned up to the track on the proposed date because they were excited about the prospect of getting to see the cars because it is rare to see the cars in large numbers.

Can you imagine getting to see about 40 of the race cars on the infield followed by the cars doing some laps at safe speeds on the oval itself? It would be a true spectacle seeing cars in formation on the track after so long.

There is many cars still out there, there is even Sprint Cup (from previous eras as well) cars and Truck Series vehicles etc in Australia too, there are still people interested in making a day happen but would somebody take the punt and organise an event?

It’s not impossible, If a couple of car owners say yes that would get attention, if big names say yes that will get more attention, if there is a donation option that would interest fans especially ones that want the event to happen badly, If motorsport publications talk about it then that would get more interest.

Of course, there is no requirement it has to happen at the Thunderdome but it is the home of the sport in Australia so keep talking about the possibilities fans because somebody may read the comments and thoughts and think let’s do it.
