BUNBURY REPAIRS RESTORE RATING
The Bunbury Car Club have undertaken a massive amount of work in the last month that has seen the venue’s 3 Star rating restored, just in time for Sprintcar racing on January 1. A combination of a life member donations, a GoFund Me page and funding from the WA Government’s South West Development Commission made the upgrades possible, with the hard work then undertaken by Club President Kade Helms and his team.
The before and after photos show that additional poles have been installed, which have the prime purpose of supporting the wire ropes that contain cars within the arena. Many concrete panels have been replaced and a large amount of fill has been added behind the wall. Speedway Australia congratulates the club, who have joined the likes of other WA clubs at Shark Bay, Margaret River and Geraldton who’ve all made major improvements to their fences in the last 12 months.
Our national specifications are recognised by both the NSW and WA Governments as being the gold standard for speedway safety, and consequently both are injecting funds into the sport to assist venues achieve them. It goes without saying that we wish the Bunbury Car Club all the best for their New Years day event, and for the remainder of their season.
