Australian GP could move back to Adelaide

Australasian Motorsport News is reporting that Formula 1 could be on its way back to Adelaide if the current battle between Bernie Ecclestone's Formula One Management and the manufacturers results in a new series. Ron Walker's close links with Ecclestone have seen the Australian Grand Prix Corporation chairman come out strongly in favor of Bernie's cause over recent months, counseling other promoters to avoid a manufacturers' series.

South Australian Premier Mike Rann's current public stance is a simple "no comment", but reliable sources have told the magazine that preliminary conversations have taken place and that the South Australian government, which acted swiftly to secure the race in 1985, is looking favorably at the idea.
