    Their whole argument against the supercars is that it will harm the heritage of the east end and yet it seems that it’s fine for them to vandalise heritage buildings in Newcastle. Seems a little mindless doesn’t it ?

    it was probably done by some V8 fan to inflame tensions. Supercars, being people e that they are will milk it for all its worth.

    Has there been a proper environmental assessment into the construction and implementation of the new track as well as the race?

    If so, can someone please send me a link to it?
