Following on from the splendid story that filtered out last week about well-known property figure Anthony Spencer's drive (if you will excuse the lame pun) to bring an annual motor Grand Prix to the Olympic Park post Games I've been told about a similarly unlikely but exciting proposal.
According to the Standard Spencer approached the ODA with a £100m proposal for a "figure-of-eight course using roads built for the Games".
News reaches me now that the ODA and LDA at some stage in the not-too-distant past received an approach from hotel, leisure and gaming giant Las Vegas Sands and Think London about potentially creating a giant casino-based theme park at the site post-Games.
I'm awaiting confirmation of this from the parties involved but my source tells me that the idea was quickly booted into touch after the government's plans to introduce super casinos were terminated.
The source does point out though that thematically the park idea makes perfect sense.
"Bidding for the London Olympics has been one huge gamble after all," he says.
