Speedway fans have received some great news recently with final planning approval received for the new Sydney International Speedway. This means that full construction began on January 4 as planned, with the venue set to open at the start of the 2021/22 season.

Key benefits of the project were identified as: -

• The creation of a Motorplex for the NSW motorsport racing community

• A new world class speedway to cater for local, regional, national, and international racing events to grow speedway racing in NSW

• Allowing for speedway racing to relocate before removal of the current speedway facility at Clyde is resumed for Sydney Metro West construction (if approved)

• Supporting the operation of existing commercial facilities within the Western Sydney Parklands Precinct 5: Eastern Creek Motor Sports. The last new two speedway builds in the Southern Hemisphere took 5 and 6 years respectively to get through the planning process, so for Sydney Metro to achieve this in 12 months is a fantastic achievement.
