A Gold Coast councillor says the cancellation of the A1 GP motor race at Surfers Paradise has raised questions about the route of the city's new light rail system.
Cr Susie Douglas represents Surfers Paradise and says the light rail route was designed to accommodate the race precinct.
She says the council should be consulted about the future of the city's motorsport festival.
"I see an opportunity here if the race is not going to come back," she said.
"We can realign the track to the eastern side of the Gold Coast Highway, thereby coming down through the Broadwater Parklands across and going through Surfers Boulevard form the top of Surfers Boulevard rather than crossing across Ferny Avenue.
"Councillors have discussed this in the past. They say, 'look we are modelling the track around an event that may not even last'."
