Following an invitation by the State Government through the Minister for Police the hon. Lisa Harvey, Motorcycling Australia (MA) and Motorcycling Western Australia (MWA) have held a number of successful discussions with both Minister for Police, and Dept. Sport and Recreation (DSR) senior staff which is about to lead to positive action at Barbagallo Raceway, Wanneroo.
MA President Tania Lawrence, together with MWA President Peter Clarke and MWA CEO Rick Gill held meetings with the Western Australia Minister for Police and Road Safety’s Office on 20 May and the Department of Sport and Recreation, 2 June to explore options for additional safety enhancements at Barbagallo Raceway.
“The meetings were highly constructive with a clear pathway forward to identify and implement positive changes to ensure that all Western Australians can continue to enjoy motorcycle racing at Barbagallo”. MA’s President Lawrence shared.
DSR have agreed to commission an independent assessment of the venue to determine options to ensure an informed decision is made to the extent and effectiveness of any enhancements.

“While it is still early in the process, we expect DSR to make an appointment of a suitably qualified person very soon, and the review to provide some independent guidance for MWA, MA and the WA Sporting Car Club (WASCC)”.
It is expected that DSR will make an appointment in the next few weeks, and for the review to be available soon after.
