Initial concepts revealed for Rockhampton’s proposed Motorsport Precinct

Initial concepts revealed for Rockhampton’s proposed Motorsport Precinct
August 3, 2020

Rockhampton Regional Council has today unveiled initial concept plans for a proposed high level, multi-purpose motorsport precinct at Bouldercombe with the plans open for public consultation.

The 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

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.

Mayor Strelow advised “these plans combine years of experience by professional experts with detailed local knowledge and insights from our local motorsport and racing groups.

“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.”

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

Deputy Mayor Fisher notes “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.

“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.”

The community consultation period will run from Monday 3rd August 2020 to Monday 24th August 2020.
