A new track in Queensland?

There are reports in Australia of plans for a new racing circuit to be built in Queensland, between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The stories suggest that the facility would be floodlit. Information is somewhat limited at the moment but the location is said to be at Nowell. The plan is being fronted by Ron Brown. It is not clear if his company has got the money to fund such a construction nor whether it is the same Ron Brown who is involved in organising Rally Australia in the same region. The rally organisation has spoken of a "permanent infrastructure" not far from Brisbane as part of its dealings with the FIA.

It remains to be seen if this is a serious threat to Melbourne.
