Announcement on Indy future due
THE Queensland government remains locked in negotiations to secure the future of the Gold Coast Indy race from next year.
Queensland Premier Anna Bligh said the government had continued negotiations with Indy bosses in the US over the weekend.
She expected to make an announcement in the coming days about whether the iconic event would go ahead after next year.
"I don't want to speculate on negotiations that are still occurring, obviously these involve negotiations with proponents in the United States," she told reporters in Brisbane on Sunday.
"There were discussions happening over the weekend, we will make an announcement as soon as we have confirmation."
The race has been held on the Gold Coast since 1991 and the V8 Supercars series has already committed to next year's rally.
