Motorsport in Western Australia is set to go from strength to strength with Evolve Facility Management, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Australian National Drag Racing Association Ltd (ANDRA) appointed as the new operator for Perth Motorplex.

The appointment follows an extensive procurement process by venue owner VenuesWest.

Evolve Facility Management has signed a multi-year lease agreement with the State Government and will take over operations from current interim operator VenuesWest, assuming responsibility for management of all aspects of event delivery across drag racing, speedway, burnouts and special events.

Evolve’s parent company, ANDRA, is well known and respected within the motorsports community, sanctioning races at all levels across the country and serving as Australia’s official controlling body for drag racing.

This appointment will provide the assurance the WA motorsport community has sought since KMPL concluded as the venue operator in 2016, with the future of the operations of Perth Motorplex now secure.

Experienced motorsport administrator Paul Trengove has been appointed to the position of Commercial and Operations Manager and will lead the Perth Motorplex team.
