Lakeside’s Future Looking Grim Queensland Raceways has issued a statement which states that due to the ongoing noise issue they have been left with no option but to cancel the highly popular Lakeside Classic race meeting. Quoting from the statement - “In October last year we were forced to stop racing at Lakeside because of the ~$40,000 in fines QR is still facing. On 1st November Minister Cameron Dick sent a letter to the Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC) making it clear that the State government has defined Lakeside as a special place that needs to be able to continue bringing recreational activities to thousands of people every year. What’s happened since then? Since then QR has met with and put a series of proposals to the MBRC as to how the situation could be resolved. One of those proposals was to ask for the re-instatement of the moratorium granted by MBRC so we could enjoy special events like the Lakeside Classic. The MBRC cancelled that moratorium without any discussion with QR. Now, the MBRC have refused to grant even that temporary relief for this year’s Classic and brought in yet more consultants to tell them what to do. No dates for completion of the “investigation” have been published. Everyone who deals with government knows this is a bureaucratic delaying tactic - hoping that QR, and you, will give up on Lakeside.” The rest of the document makes for interesting reading……..
