MEDIA RELEASE/Rockhampton City Council – Rockhampton Council FB

Rockhampton Regional Council has today unveiled the first concept plans for a proposed Motorsport Precinct at Bouldercombe with the plans open for public consultation.

Mayor Margaret Strelow said the first draft of what the future precinct could look like had been designed by industry experts in conjunction with local motorsporting clubs.

“These plans combine years of experience by professional experts with detailed local knowledge and insights from our local motorsport and racing groups,” Mayor Strelow said.

“This design incorporates tracks for a range of sports including  a 3.1km circuit, incorporating rallycross, drifting and 1/8 mile drag strip, road safety driving area, 1.3km kart circuit, a Gymkhana area, dual Mudsports figure 8 tracks and BMX tracks just to name a few along with grandstands, clubhouses, storage and pit buildings.

 “I want to thank all the clubs that have taken part in this early design process and given us their feedback to help shape this first draft of what could be possible.

 “While there’s still a large body of work to be done to ensure this site is the right location, this is an excellent first step and shows the potential facility our region could have in the coming years,” Mayor Strelow said.

Deputy Mayor Neil Fisher said the plans were now open for feedback and invited all residents to view them and give Council their thoughts.

“It’s really important that we get the community feedback now so that we can take that through to the next stage and do a more detailed design which will feed into a Masterplan to be revealed in September and October,” Deputy Mayor Fisher said.

“The consultation period is open from today until August 24th so I’d encourage everyone to hop on to Council’s engagement website Engage Rockhampton Region, view the plans and give us your feedback.

“While this consultation is going on, we will continue to carry out the technical assessments needed to deliver that Masterplan and I look forward to the community giving us more feedback at the next stage as well,” Deputy Mayor Fisher said.

A conditional contract has been entered into for a preferred site at 53199 Burnett Highway, Bouldercombe.
