Rac­ing back to Barba­gallo

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

Af­ter a hia­tus of 28 months, mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing has re­turned to Barba­gallo Race­way in Perth.

The ad­di­tion of a ‘Bus Stop’ chi­cane lay­out and the in­stal­la­tion of Air­fence safety barriers at key points, which have been ap­proved by Mo­tor­cy­cling Aus­tralia (MA), has per­mit­ted the cir­cuit to once again be li­cenced for com­pe­ti­tion, ef­fec­tive March 1, 2019.

Mo­tor­cy­cling WA CEO Joe McCarthy was pleased to an­nounce mo­tor­cy­cling’s re­turn to the cir­cuit at Wan­neroo. “This is great news for mo­tor­cy­clists and mo­tor­cy­cle fans in Western Aus­tralia, who now have the op­por­tu­nity to en­joy mo­tor­cy­cling at Barba­gallo once again,” McCarthy said. “We would like to thank all those who helped to fa­cil­i­tate mo­tor­cy­cling’s re­turn to Barba­gallo, in­clud­ing track op­er­a­tors the WA Sport­ing Car Club and MA. We would also like to ac­knowl­edge Min­is­ter for Sport and Recre­ation, The Hon. Mick Mur­ray MLA and the Gov­ern­ment of Western Aus­tralia for sup­port­ing our de­sire to bring mo­tor­cy­cling back to this fan­tas­tic fa­cil­ity.”

MA CEO Pe­ter Doyle was pleased to con­firm that Barba­gallo had re­ceived ap­proval for mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing to re­sume at the track. “It has been a long process, but we are happy to see a pos­i­tive re­sult” he said. “There have been a num­ber of im­prove­ments made to the cir­cuit re­cently and it will be great to see rac­ing re­turn to Barba­gallo.”
