But what do you think of the change? After a five-year hiatus from Eastern Creek, and a successful Sydney street race now three years old, can ‘Sin City’ sustain two V8 Supercars events?

“Awesome I will be there with my son – I can’t wait,” said Robert Chandler.

“Eastern Creek will be have a busy three weekends in August with World Time Attack, V8s then Muscle Car Masters. Guess where I’ll be for three weeks solid!” said Dave Oliver.
