18 December 2020: Events to resume with enhanced security measures at Perth Motorplex

Following a rigorous review of current security measures, VenuesWest in consultation with WA Police Force have determined events with an expected attendance of more than 100 people may resume from Sunday 20 December with the provision of increased police presence and enhanced security measures in place.

As such, the Custom Cars and Coffee event will run this Sunday.

Additional security measures will be in place for this event, including a significantly increased security and police presence at the venue assuming a checking and supervision role, enhanced active CCTV surveillance, as well as other enhanced security measures.

The safety of our patrons is our number one priority and we continue to liaise with the WA Police. These additional security measures have been implemented to ensure patrons feel confident and safe returning to the Motorplex.

16 December 2020: VenuesWest to significantly boost security at Perth Motorplex

Following a stringent review of current security measures after an incident on Saturday 12 December, VenuesWest on behalf of the State Government has determined all private bookings and bookings of under 100 people at Perth Motorplex may now resume. 

A significantly increased security presence will be in place, assuming a checking and supervision role for upcoming events at the Kwinana venue.

The venue had security checks in place on Saturday night and measures are not believed to have been breached. Instead it is understood that the perpetrator breached the perimeter by non-conventional means. 

As is usual practice, with last Saturday’s event, an event risk management plan was in place and security undertook standard access control and entry checks.

The decision to resume events of more than 100 people will be made pending the provision of further information and advice from WA Police expected sometime this week.

The matter is now the subject of investigation by the WA Police and anyone with any information or footage should be directed to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or www.crimestopperswa.com.au.

The safety of our patrons is our number one priority and as such we continue to liaise with the WA Police.
