Hi Alana: To give us the number of cars entered …

Comment on NATS: Petrol heads rule by Erwin Chlanda.

Hi Alana: To give us the number of cars entered would have been a computer click for the organisers versus hours of searching for us to find the car with the highest number. Why the secrecy?
We still don’t know how many cars were from Alice and how many from outside.
We still don’t know how many tickets were sold. Again, why the secrecy?
That’s the kind of research a diligent journalist undertakes when $1.3m – best guess – of taxpayers’ money is spent on a weekend of entertainment.
If it brings money into the town then let’s have the facts to substantiate and quantify that.
Let it grow? Absolutely. Many of our 19,000 plus readers are spread across the nation and the world. We cover most of the great events in The Centre. We report on a myriad of economic opportunities. Many of our 18,000 plus comment writers (so far) contribute to that vital discussion.
But our readers want us to tell the whole story, and they know we will.

Hi Hal: Because of the absurd secrecy that surrounds this process we can only guess that it was triggered by a comment Cr Cocking made about a report headed “Let’s have an Australia Day when we are ready for it” which we published on January 31 this year.
