RELEASE OF MARK M ALDRIDGE INDEPENDENT Candidate for the Upper
WHERE IS OUR DEDICATED MOTOR SPORTS
As part of my many ideals for change, and in the lead up
to the Clipsal 500, Lets Once and for all finalize the debate about a dedicated
drag strip/Motorplex in South Australia.
Upper House candidate Mark M Aldridge, for whom cars and
motorbikes have always been a passion, says South Australians deserve a similar
facility to those in other states.
Having quite a few classic and collectable vehicles built
with my own hands, I have always enjoyed those few spare times when I can make a
drag meeting or burn out comp, says Mark
Having just finished a big horsepower hot rod of my own,
I would love the opportunity to do a little showing of myself, so having a safe
environment to do so is imperative.
“There is an overwhelming demand for a dedicated
motorsports facility to provide a legal venue to get hoons off the street and
into a controlled area, and it would have the added value of tourism for our
state, oh and of course my own self interest, laughs Mark
The huge popularity of television programs like ‘Top
Gear’ show the huge following for extreme sports and cars.South Australia has a huge pool of talent in the area of
modified specialty car and bike building and some bloody good drivers, says
Mark, yet we have no way to showcase it, and it creates a lot of frustration for
There is a lot of money and
employment through out the industry, yet with all the support and money on offer
to fund the ideal, we are stuck with a Labor government that seem to have their
“The South Australian government sends a mixed message by
promoting the Clipsal 500 with its emphasis on speed and driving skill, yet
refusing to consider a track where young people can try out their own skills in
a safe environment.“They simply can’t have it both ways.
They say they want
to stop young people hooning around the streets, yet they reject a dedicated
facility which is part of the solution,” said Mark.
I could understand Mike Rann’s position if the project
had to be funded from the public purse, but that is not the case, commonsense
seems to be out the window when the Rann government goes as far as stifling
private enterprise from doing what could be considered his own job, says
If elected to the upper house, I will fight hard to
ensure common sense prevails, says Mark even though I might attract a hoon label
for doing so…..lol
Even my running Mate and wife Helen is a huge motor sports fan, having several rather nice machines herself, does that make us the Hoon Independents?
