    Sydney dropped, Perth night race added in Supercars 2019 shake up

    From a tourism point of view lets hope the AFL fixture a complementary game, offering fans of both sports an extra reason to spend a long weekend in Perth.

    .... an all-new format for the visit to Perth’s Barbagallo Raceway in the first weekend of May.

    The track will host a meeting from Thursday to Saturday with racing under lights for Supercars on the Saturday night.

    Can I suggest Jeff Browne be appointed Ambassador for the event - well connected in both the V8 Supercar world and the AFL & capable of getting things to happen. Lets hope local egos dont ruin a great chance for a big weekend in Perth.

    Top op for Freo for a home game v the Pies, Browne & Eddie are close mates, seen here seated in front of Ed sharing the GF loss:

    The AFL is not going to give a shit. You're trying to discourage fans form NSW/Qld to go? I don't think supercars is that big a deal for people to want to go to Perth for.

    The AFL at the highest level will listen IF Jeff Browne & Eddie plus Freo apply some pressure (not just mid level management types), it'll get a fair hearing - you across what Tourism WA said recently dodge?

    Leverage Tourism WA funding to advertise the weekend leading up to it on the East Coast on both AFL & Supercar telecasts on FTA & Fox.

    With the Supercar corporate ride day on the following Monday it should meet most Tourism WAs criteria.

    Unfortunately it seems the Eagles have their eye on round 2 for a GF rematch, & I cant see the Pies buying 2 x trips to Perth in 6 weeks.

    Oh right. Since you put it in context, I can see the point of your OP.

    Tbh, none of those factors are enough to get me over to WA. I remember as a younger guy working in nightclubs and bars. In particular random nights I remember you'd meet a particularly hot chick, and she was from Perth.
