Racing back to Barbagallo
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.”
