Premier of Queensland and Trade Minister, Annastacia Palaszczuk says she hopes the IndyCar Series returns to the Gold Coast in Australia following positive meetings with Hulman and Company president Mark Miles and Stephen Starks, VP of Promoter Relations with IndyCar.
Palaszczuk tweeted on Friday:
Sun, sea, surf and, hopefully Indy. Welcome to the Gold Coast. Let’s see if we can bring back @IndyCar. https://t.co/t5AhTD1SAZ
Paddock Eye understands that if a deal is completed it would mean that Australia would return to the calendar for 2020 as not just as an exhibition race, it would count towards the championship.
