Media release

Perth Motorplex at dusk
  • Perth Motorplex will reopen in August for track hire and in October for the drag racing and speedway season following a five-month closure due to COVID-19
  • Current venue operator VenuesWest is planning to transition to a new venue operator later in this financial year
  • Planning for the 2020-21 motorsports season is underway

COVID-19 caused an early end to the 2019-20 season followed by a complete venue closure over the winter months.

VenuesWest will now finalise the process to secure a suitable venue operator. It is planned for a new operator to take over part way through the 2020-21 season.

The season will be prepared under current COVID-19 restrictions, with the flexibility to adapt closer to the commencement of the season should restrictions change.

An extensive transition plan will be implemented to ensure a smooth handover to the new operator, so motorsports competitors and fans can be assured that the return to racing will be as seamless as possible.

Perth Motorplex achieved great results across drag racing, speedway, burnouts and special events last season and VenuesWest, looks forward to building on that success in the coming season.
