    Melbourne indoor track

    I can't find information on any indoor track currently in Melbourne. (dirt/road)
    That being said, I'm looking for some input, from anyone that found themselves reading this

    Is there a reason this type of business has failed in the past?
    Is there enough interest to even consider setting one up? Popular scale? Location?

    With such a large outlay involved, I'm hoping to learn everything I can before setting things in motion.

    Thanks in advance for any time you give me.

    dunno, you being closer probably know more than me

    last time i was out there WOT is on the main road so no empty plot either side afaik.
    There's a sunken tarmac (rough/aged) area for loadingzone & carpark down behind
    but probably too gravelly for onroads.

    that day was bucketing down btw & the windows were steaming up so couldn't see much.

    There is a field/paddock/grassy bit behind the carpark, which I read a little while back was mentioned to be made into a track a while ago. Not sure if anythings happened as I haven't been in since then opening day. Sam any updates on this?

    I was there last week, it sure looks like an off road track going in behind the shop, there was a gravel track marked out, looking good!!!

    INteresting i've been meaning to get out there since it has opened, but as yet have failed to do so, must make a point of it considering the weather has been terrible for actually driving the cars...
