Collie Motorcycle Festival
The WA Sporting Car Club has appointed Principal Engineer Steve Brake from Calibre Consulting to assist in the implementation of the outline plan agreed at the stakeholders meeting of 25 May. Steve is currently working on similar projects including the upgrade of Collie Raceway.
A working group of eminent motorcycle trainers and riders has been established to assist Steve as the first phase of the plan is implemented – the return of training and restricted ride activity. To this end, the working group met on 4 July and laid positive foundations for the implementation of measures that will see an expeditious return of these activities. Testing of the layout modifications as well as production of materials is envisaged for early August. Pending successful testing, invitations will be forwarded to observe a public display of the proposed measures

How we plan to return Motorcycle activity to Barbagallo Raceway
Outline Plan for Return of Motorcycle Activity Agreed in Principle
In 2016, the Department of Sport & Recreation (DSR) commissioned Mr Chris Hall to conduct a safety audit on Barbagallo Raceway. In his report, Mr Hall identified areas of risk concluding that motorcycle race activity at the Raceway presented an unacceptable risk.
Wandi Road Racer Callum O’Brien has earned the opportunity of a lifetime as a result of his efforts at the 2017 Motorcycling Western Australia’s JET Camp.
Callum already competes nationally as part of the Australian Superbike Championship in the Supersport 300 category.

In light of the situation that your club has with the cancellation of motorcycle related activity at Barbagallo, the Motorcycle Sportsmen would like to offer free entry to MCRCWA members, who are domiciled in, and travel from WA, at any of our club rounds, This does not include ASBK at Morgan Park.
The Masters of Morgan Park meeting provided the event and the venue for the second round of the Australian F1 and F2 Sidecar Championship. With fantastic support from local Queensland teams, the number of riders were significantly higher than that of Round 1, despite the departure of two teams to compete at the Isle of Man.
Featuring as part of the Yamaha Motor Finance Australian Superbike Championship presented by Motul Pirelli (ASBK) in select rounds this year, the Australian F1 and F2 Sidecar Championship provided exceptional racing and plenty of thrills for the local spectators.

Barbagallo Raceway Perspective
"Having a dedicated facility where motorcyclists can expand their knowledge and experience in a controlled environment is an essential aid to reducing the road toll…
The public roads are now less safe than they were when the track was open and operating and I see no sense in that situation continuing."
The Australian Sidecar Championship will again heat up at Morgan Park Raceway in Queensland, as competitors start to make their way from all corners of the country to compete for vital points this weekend. Motorcycling Australia (MA) recently caught up with rider Jero Joyce and passenger Corey Blackman F1 Sidecar Competitors.
UPDATED INFORMATION AS OF 9th MARCH 2017, RE BARBAGALLO RACEWAY
MCRCWA would like to inform our members and partners on the actual up-to-date position of the return to Barbagallo Raceway for bikes.
Just a quick update, the MA inspection was carried out on Tuesday. This was the regular annual inspection. The inspection report will go to MA Monday as all the run-offs require calculation. We would expect MA to forward the licence and a report to WASCC sometime next week. A consultant will be on site early next week to conduct an independent risk analysis. The independent report will provide a more balanced view on risks at the venue outside of the MA licensing process. MWA are not involved with the consultancy but we understand that it will take into account the DSR report.
