OPERATOR ANNOUNCEMENT

Perth Motorplex Management

15 June 2016

VenuesWest will take over interim management of Perth Motorplex from 1 July 2016 following the decision of the current operator, Kwinana Motorplex Pty Ltd to withdraw from management of the venue.

VenuesWest has owned the venue on behalf of the State Government since 2000 and has a long history of venue management across other well-known Perth sport and entertainment venues such as HBF Stadium, HBF Arena, Midvale SpeedDome, WA Athletics Stadium, Bendat Basketball Centre and nib Stadium.

VenuesWest CEO, David Etherton said that a VenuesWest management solution provided the best short term solution available to ensure the continued success and viability of Perth Motorplex.

“VenuesWest will take over management of Perth Motorplex from 1 July 2016 for a period of up to two years, allowing the Perth motorsports community to continue to compete in and enjoy their racing.” Mr Etherton said.

“When the venue reopens, following the usual winter closure, I have every confidence, that with the assistance of the motorsport community, we will deliver a safe and operational venue.”

VenuesWest will immediately seek to engage a long term management solution by way of open-market tender.

Mr Etherton went on to explain, “This is a great venue and we want the best possible operator to run the venue, so a competitive process will be run. The negotiation of any major long term contract takes time and is a detailed process, hence the interim management period by VenuesWest.”

Perth Motorplex receives around 235,000 visitors annually to compete in 80 regular drag racing and speedway events and to experience several major entertainment events throughout the year.

Over the coming weeks VenuesWest will actively engage with existing staff, relevant stakeholders, sanctioning bodies and venue suppliers to ensure that Perth Motorplex continues to be at the forefront of racing.

VenuesWest is Western Australia’s provider of premier sports, recreation and entertainment venues and its portfolio includes the world class Perth Arena and the redeveloped nib Stadium as well as Perth Stadium to be completed in 2018.

These are in addition to HBF Stadium, HBF Arena, WA Athletics Stadium, Bendat Basketball Centre, Midvale SpeedDome, Perth Motorplex, Champion Lakes Regatta Centre, WA Rugby Centre, State Netball Centre and the Western Australian Institute of Sport High Performance Service Centre.
