I don't see a minor 4 million a year holding up a project and event of this magnitude. For example, Australia pays something like $50 mill a year for the Australian Grand Prix.
you'll be surprised...

$4million is a lot if the council are full of fiscal conservatives. I say the investors needs to start getting their checkbooks out, they're going to need to "bribe" some people to get this through. I don't doubt they can't, so I think this event will go on for 2012.
