    State Government seeking operator for Perth Motorplex

    8/03/2019 2:00 PM
    • Expressions of interest open for lease or sale of the Perth Motorplex 
    • The motorplex facility can accommodate popular motorsports and other events
    • Average attendances at speedway and drag racing events up substantially over the last 12 months 

    The State Government has announced the opportunity to acquire and operate the Perth Motorplex.


    Located less than 40 minutes from Perth's city centre, the Perth Motorplex is a 63-hectare site in Kwinana Beach which hosts a range of popular motorsports including drag racing, speedway, car shows, stunt shows and motocross events.


    Perth Motorplex has seen a substantial uplift in attendances this season, with average attendances at speedway events up 22 per cent, and drag racing 10 per cent. This weekend's Monster Trucks Unleashed has almost sold out and will bring the biggest single crowd to the motorplex since 2015.


    Acquisition of the site, via either lease or sale, will be conditional upon the selected proponent continuing to deliver speedway and drag racing events, which are of strategic importance to the sport of motor racing.


    Expressions of interest will open shortly and interested parties should contact the State's appointed agent, Jones Lang LaSalle on 0417 884 888.


    Comments attributed to Lands Minister Ben Wyatt:


    "The Perth Motorplex is a popular local facility offering family friendly entertainment.


    "Opened in December 2000, the multimillion dollar facility is the heart of motor racing in WA.


    "I encourage interested parties to apply to lease or purchase this iconic venue which offers quality facilities to host motorsports and events for the benefit of the Western Australian community."


    Comments attributed to Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray:


    "Perth Motorplex is Western Australia's largest motorsports venue and is well supported by the community.


    "Perth Motorplex has enjoyed very strong attendances this season, and will welcome its largest crowd for four years this weekend."
