SKB Racing - RidedaysWA Coach
Barbagallo Raceway Perspective

Update Return to Barbagallo Raceway
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.
Barbagallo Raceway Update
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.
