The Canberra Times’ Megan Doherty has been having a dig and asking motorsport venues if they’ve been approaching Canberra’s Chic Henry for the chance to host his Summernats hoonfest.
Oddly enough she wasn’t able to find any despite Chic’s annual claims that they’re lining up for the chance to take it off our hands.
The Western Sydney International Dragway admitted they were interested after Chic approached them recently.
But they’d want to see an end to the booze and the boobs before they’d take it. Even worse: ‘It also wanted to avoid attracting ”the hoon mentality”.’
There goes that negotiating position.
