TT race application withdrawn
  • Tuesday 16 August 2016

The organisers of the proposed Sunshine Coast International TT race have withdrawn their event sponsorship application to Sunshine Coast Council.

Council CEO Mike Whittaker said the decision meant the proposal was no longer being considered by the Sunshine Coast Events Board for recommendation to Sunshine Coast Council.

“In his correspondence, the proponent has acknowledged he was unable to provide the information required of him within the time requested,” Mr Whittaker said.

“We are always interested in attracting top-line events to our region as evidenced by this year’s outstanding World is Coming schedule, but events do need to meet certain criteria and supply information as requested by the Events Board.

“The Sunshine Coast has a full calendar of events contributing $100 million of economic benefits to our region this year.

“Council will continue to work with event organisers to bring exciting events to the region for the enjoyment of our community, competitors and their supporters.”
