Barbagallo omitted from 2010 calendar
The V8 Supercar Championship will be without Barbagallo Raceway this year, after it was omitted from the 2010 Calendar.

V8 Supercars Australia confirmed the 2010 calendar today, dropping the Perth event which was provisionally scheduled for June 4th to 6th this year.

Shane Howard, acting CEO of V8 Supercars Australia said that a resolution between the Western Australian Sporting Car Club (WASCC) and V8 Supercars Australia (V8SC) could not be met, flagging basic OH&S issues as the main course.

"It is great news that we have been able to secure the City of Ipswich 300 but disappointing we have been unable to find a workable solution to the similar issues we have at Barbagallo Raceway," Howard said.

"We are extremely disappointed for all of our fans in WA. As a group we have worked overtime in trying to get this third world facility re-vamped so that both the Paddock and the pit lane meet basic OH&S legislation.

"Despite a reduced sanction fee of around 25 percent of the actual cost for us to race in Perth, committing to a long-term five-year deal and offering the services of Mark Skaife and our engineers to design the new circuit at our cost, we still get a lip service response.

"The situation is best summed up by a recent seven page letter and subsequent letters that have received just a one paragraph response at best. Our WA fans will at least have the extensive free to view live coverage on the 7 Network.

"Hopefully this opens the door for other regions of Western Australia to approach us with a view to bringing one of the world's greatest Touring Car Championships to a new destination in the future."

Talks between the WASCC, Western Australian Government and V8SA, were to everyone's acknowledge, going well. The WASCC have plans to extend the current circuit in stages along with facility refurbishments.

WASCC were forced to resurface sections of the circuit, costing in excess of $14,000, following the use of the Dunlop sprint tyre at last years V8 event. At this stage we are uncertain whether this has played a contributing factor to the omitting of Barbagallo Raceway.
