They article seems to downplay what most others seem to describe as "severe" subsidence on many parts of the bankings. I knew there were serious plans to bring back the main Calder circuit into the National level motorsport arena, and that would be fantastic, but the Thunderdome?

From most accounts the dome is stuffed. I have seen plenty of pics of the bumps with subsidence/

I know the roadcourse has been used for at least Supersprints in recent times and my info is that it is far from smooth but in serviceable condition. 

Biggest problem is the straight doubles as a drag strip and the glue, even if scraped will be a major issue,, especially if it rains. Which happens a lot in Keilor!! 

At AIR just the rubber coming off the bowl was super slippery. The line when raining was right up high on the bowl then cut down inside the drag area. 100% backwards to the dry line. I saw plenty of cars trashed if you did it wrong.
