Rac­ing to re­turn to Barba­gallo?

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

The re­cent com­plete resur­fac­ing of Perth’s Barba­gallo Race­way may her­ald a re­turn of mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing to the cir­cuit. The en­tire 2.42km lap re­ceived a fresh coat­ing of a com­pound called Stone Mas­tic As­phalt, which uses a finer mix­ture than the usual Dense Graded As­phalt and is said to be kinder to tyres. In ad­di­tion to the resur­fac­ing, a ‘Bus Stop’ chi­cane has been added to the track be­fore Turn 3, specif­i­cally for mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing. This takes the di­rec­tion of rac­ing away from the no­to­ri­ous wall at Turn 3 be­fore re­join­ing the main track for the long sweep­ing left han­der up the hill. The track will be in­spected by Mo­tor­cy­cling WA be­fore a fi­nal de­ci­sion is made on the re­turn of mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing.
