Sandown to host the 2012 public test day
SANDOWN racecourse will host the launch of the 2012 V8 Supercar season in February.

The promotional test day is expected to attract up to 15,000 people and international media attention to the Springvale track on February 11.

It won't feature actual racing, but will involve up to 28 V8 Supercars on the track at once for testing. The day will be free to the public.

Greater Dandenong Council granted consent to the Melbourne Racing Club, which is the owner and operator of the site, last Monday to use Sandown for the V8 Supercar launch.

But mayor Roz Blades, who voted against the motion along with Cr Youhorn Chea, said she was unhappy nearby residents weren't consulted about the event.

She said instead of asking them what they wanted, the council was telling them what would happen.

"I understand there's going to be some engagement but I think that needed to happen first," she said. "There's been a number of issues [with Sandown noise levels] over the years. You can't solve that problem unless there's consultation at the coalface."

Cr Blades said while the launch was a one-day event, the noise would still disturb nearby residents.

"People are saying 'it's only one day' but it's still a weekend day where in your own garden you can't hear anything," she said. "If you want to get married on February 11, don't even think about it."

But Cr Peter Brown, who has been a Melbourne Racing Club member since 1994, said cars had been racing there for more than 50 years, so people who bought homes nearby should expect noise every now and then.

"Here, we have to be mindful of the fact it is an event of great significance," he said. "This event is one all residents should take with pride."

Good that they're giving other places a chance to watch their tests, hopefully it's as successful as last year's was.

Hopefully the rest of the calendar will be out sometime this week

This is what I think the calendar will be: :)

Test Day Sandown Test Day, Melbourne
Rd 1 Clipsal 500, Adelaide - March 1-4 (2012 Clipsal 500 date announced)
Non Championship Rd Australian Grand Prix, Melbourne - Late March
Rd 2 Singapore (NEW EVENT) - Early April
Rd 3 ITM Hamilton 400, New Zealand (Last race at Hamilton, Whenuapai Airbase for 2013) - Late April
Rd 4 Trading Post Perth Challenge, Wanneroo - Early May
Rd 5 Winton Motor Raceway, Benalla - Late May
Rd 6 Skycity Triple Crown, Darwin - Early June
Rd 7 Sucrogen Townsville 400, Townsville - Early July
Rd 8 Coates Hire Ipswich 300, Ipswich - Late August
Rd 9 Sandown 500, Melbourne (endurance event) - Late September
Rd 10 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, Bathurst Mt Panorama (endurance event) - Early October
Rd 11 Armor All Gold Coast 600, Surfers Paradise (endurance event) - Late October
Rd 12 Yas V8 400, Abu Dhabi - Early November
Rd 13 L&H 300, Philip Island - Late November
Rd 14 Sydney Telstra 500, Homebush - Early December

Singapore is included at the expense of Tassie. PI and Sandown swap races, Sandown gets the 500 while PI moves to November.

I wish they'd keep the test day at Eastern Creek :(. Was good having a local Sydney event to go to that wasn't Homebush.

That's interesting. The Singapore F1 event is usually held in September. The Middle East and India have both been labelled as 'unlikely'...

man this is killing me . i want to book tickets flights .

Im going to abu dhabi for the f1/v8s and want to do the tba on return to oz .

Ive heard that Indonesia might be a go with the italian cars . so look at it logically

Singapore need to build a street circuit and highly doubtful for 2012 maybe 2013 ?
India maybe
hong kong 2013
china probably not
Indonesia , quick to get home , easy for aussies/kiwis to travel , with Italian super cars as a sub category .
where else could host them ?

i dont know any other ideas or comments . im guessing theyll tell us all at sandown maybe


thanks guys :)
