it is “an outrage” that the race is held in Victoria while the state is “buffeted by climate change, dwindling oil reserves, water shortages and the global financial crisis”.

“Why should they have to suffer all that for a car race whose public price tag blew out to $41.3 million last year?”

Great – we’ll have it in Sydney, then. Sign here.
