What future for the racing dinosaurs

You have to wonder what today's announcement in the Sunday Mail means for the viability of the dinosaur racing in Townsville. The announcement that there are plans to make the Gold Coast SuperGP part of $2m V8's Grand Slam should send shivers up the spines of all tax-payers.

If the plan goes ahead, you have to wonder whether interstate and regional Queensland punters are going to come to the Townsville warm-up race or spend their hard-earned on the main game at the Gold Coast. Tourist inflows were of course the singular justification for the taxpayer 'investment' in dinosaur racing in our little town.
