Broad­ford gets a facelift

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

The Road Race Cir­cuit at the State Mo­tor­cy­cle Com­plex at Broad­ford is to re­ceive a com­plete resur­fac­ing be­fore the end of the year, thanks to a to­tal of $473,000 pledged by the Vic­to­rian Gov­ern­ment. The an­nounce­ment was made by Mem­ber for North­ern Vic­to­ria, Jaclyn Symes dur­ing a visit to the com­plex for the Women’s Only Ride day on June 25th. As well as nu­mer­ous open and club race events, the track is used con­tin­u­ously for Ride days, Ju­nior pro­grammes and ve­hi­cle launches. How­ever af­ter be­ing in use since 1990, the 1.9km cir­cuit is now show­ing signs of wear and tear, so the up­grade will come as wel­come news.
