Plans for new Motor Sports Hub at Fiskville
Plans to convert the old Country Fire Authority (CFA) training site in Fiskville into a multipurpose motor sports venue have gained momentum with the State Government chipping in $150,000 towards a business case assessing the viability of the project.
Establishing a Regional Motocross Facility that provides a contained, safe and controlled facility for local rider education, activities and events is a G21 Priority project.
The City of Greater Geelong undertook an analysis of available sites suitable for the establishment of a motocross facility in our region, and identified the Fiskville site as a potential option for consideration.
When the Moorabool Shire presented to the Sport & Recreation Pillar earlier this year, G21 provided an in principle letter of support to their proposal.
The State Government is partnering with Moorabool Shire Council and the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) to develop a business case that investigates the potential of the Fiskville site as a motor sport hub.
Opportunities for grassroots participation, driver education and training, industry development and vehicle testing will all be explored through the business case.
The project will assess the infrastructure requirements for a range of motor sport disciplines along with the capability of the site to host major motor sporting events.
