Mal­lala’s new own­ers

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

Fol­low­ing the death of cir­cuit owner Clem Smith in Fe­bru­ary (see OBA 65), Mal­lala Mo­tor­sport Park has been sold to the Pere­grine Cor­po­ra­tion, which is cur­rently en­gaged in the con­struc­tion of the new Bend Mo­tor­sport Park at Tailem Bend, South Aus­tralia. Pere­grine boss Sam Shahin says Mal­lala’s in­fra­struc­ture will be up­dated, but wants to see the cir­cuit fo­cus on “grass­roots motor sport”. He also said he wanted to at­tract na­tional cham­pi­onship meet­ings, in­clud­ing a round of the Aus­tralian Su­per­bike Cham­pi­onships. “We want Mal­lala to be part of the re­nais­sance of mo­tor­sport in SA,” he told the Ade­laide Ad­ver­tiser news­pa­per.
