WA Government gives green light to motorsport in Kalgoorlie

WA Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray announced the formation of a Project Steering Group to help upgrade Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s existing motorsport infrastructure and plan future infrastructure needs.

Mr Murray met with elected representatives from several Goldfields motorsport clubs to discuss their priorities and vision for the future of motorsport in the region, kick-starting planning for the $2 million WA Government election commitment for motorsport infrastructure in Kalgoorlie.

The steering group will include representatives from the clubs, as well as a representative from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and other relevant organisations.

The 2019-20 State Budget provided $50,000 to undertake planning with local clubs and stakeholders to determine the priorities for upgrade as part of the $2 million election commitment and for future investment.

It is anticipated planning will be undertaken over the next six to eight months to help determine priorities for investment, which will then be considered as part of the 2020-21 State Budget process.
