SPRING rac­ing is here and it kicks off at As­cot Race­course on Oc­to­ber 17 with Crown Perth Open­ing Day.

Rac­ing isn’t the only thing be­ing launched that day; As­cot will of­fi­cially open its new fa­cil­i­ties to pa­trons, which in­cludes re­fur­bished mem­bers ar­eas, public view­ing ar­eas and open spa­ces.

The public and mem­ber floors have un­der­gone a $2.5 mil­lion re­vamp and boast sev­eral bars, restau­rants and pri­vate func­tion ar­eas.

Booths and art­work were de­signed specif­i­cally for Perth Rac­ing.

It also in­cludes the re­moval of grand­stand seat­ing to al­low a deck­ing area for mem­bers in the out­door area.

A new ad­di­tion in­cludes a cham­pagne bar for mem­bers when they ar­rive.

The 2000m track will also look dif­fer­ent to reg­u­lar pa­trons with a new mount­ing en­clo­sure and fin­ish­ing post.
