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.
The unfortunate loss of ASBK was a commercial decision made by ASBK organisers to allow adequate time for teams and riders to prepare for the season.
With the current track license and permits being held up by our main governing bodies waiting for the two reports on track improvements and safety recommendations, ASBK waited for an extended period to allow our SCB and MA adequate time to assess these reports. Unfortunately, due to time restraints and logistical requirements, they had to make the decision- once again a commercial decision, to go to the NT.
Both MCRCWA along with the WASCC were strongly in favour of having the event here but without the recommendations of the two reports finalised, could not confirm the return to track this soon.
We are now awaiting the review and subsequent report from MA to formulate a return to track plan with the WASCC and get us moving forward.
It must be said that both MCRCWA and the WASCC are in a holding pattern and extremely positive and anxious, waiting on the two governing bodies MA and MWA in re licensing the track and issuing the permits for normal activity to resume at Barbagallo .
The Executive of the MCRCWA would like to apologise to its members for the perceived lack of information presented and involvement, but now having facts can look forward to working with all stakeholders to get us racing again

Barbagallo Raceway Update
Rick Gill Executive Director MWA
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.
TYRE WALL CONSTRUCTION
THE “NO WALL AT T4”.
To allay the fears once and for all – THERE WILL BE NO WALL ON THE OUTSIDE OF T4.
The construction of the wall on the south side of the “Basin” access road began today and I took some photos to try and put to bed the notion that there is going to be a wall on the outside of T4 (Left-Hander).

BULLETIN - MWA
B U L L E T I N
TO: ALL ROAD RACE CLUBS/PROMOTERS/RIDERS
FROM: Rick Gill, CEO
DATE: 18 November 2016
SUBJECT: Competition Licences for Road Race
With the closure of Barbagallo for racing at least in the short term MWA would like to assure members that no rider will be disadvantaged where the issue of licences is concerned.
For members who compete in the road race discipline and have RENEWED or been issued a NEW licence dated after November 7, we will refund in full your licence costs upon request.
For existing licence holders issued with a licence prior to November 7, MWA will reassess the situation closer to the race season and will work out an arrangement at that time to credit the
balance of any remaining licence until its expiry, should the track remain close.
All rider numbers will be quarantined to ensure riders who do not renew prior to Barbagallo re-opening will not be disadvantaged by losing their allocated race number.
In the mean time we are doIng our utmost to have the circuit re-open.
I support the swift and safe return of motorcycle rider training, coaching and competition to Barbagallo Raceway.
In order for this petition to be fully recognised in WA parliament, it is required that the petition is printed and signed. Please follow the below link to find a PDF ready to print. Collect as many signatures of supporters as possible, family, friends, neighbors and coworkers.
Please use the link to the pdf, print the petition and get as many signatures as you can. The on line petition is an indication of support but can not be presented to a government department like the DSR hence the importance of the printed and signed petition.
Volunteer Officials - Accreditation Courses
Motorcycling, like most sports, relies heavily on the input of volunteers to ensure that race meetings and events continue to run efficiently.
One of the best ways to get up close to the action is to get involved as a volunteer official.
Motorcycling WA hold regular Accreditation courses for any interested volunteer officials.
Level 1 is a 3 hour course held mostly weeknights but also some weekends.
All info can be found at www.motorcyclingwa.org.au register on line
