One of the tasks that we've been working on in preparation for the upcoming season is the increase in height of our barriers in the right-lane. This has been a huge undertaking for the Motorplex, and we're thrilled to have completed the last pour on Tuesday, well ahead of schedule.
We'd like to send out a huge thank you to everyone who has given up their time, blood, sweat and tears to help make it happen, in particular Burt, Wayne, Willie, Garry, Aaron, Jim, Jackson and Jason, and of course, Bob.
So sad I was looking forward to seeing the 3 men in my life race each other in their street cars - next year 😪
Suprised it was advertised in the first place.every other event was cancelled.
Just out it on facebook or own site with all the racing
Just let it happen you can 100 ppl at a pub why not here
Just run it with a cap on 100 people in the pits and 100 spectators. Don’t mix between them.
You’ve already gone through all the effort of organising it. TWICE. May aswell get something back instead of nothing
Matthew Waterreus might want to let the bro Adam know too.
We won't have to worry soon the stupid Labour Greens government will ban V8s soon.
Call it black lines matter
Fuck this covid shit.....
Fuck the Covid
Well gota be stupid to not see that coming. Everyone is dropping dead in the streets right? Fucking idiots whoever cant see whats going on
Masterton Motorplex's new timing boards were planned to be installed during the later part of last season. But with almost every imaginable hurdle being thrown in our way including COVID-19, Grant & Dave made the last connections today, following a marathon two-day effort. A massive thanks has to go out to Grant and Dave for their efforts, and also to the team of volunteers and helpers at the working bee today and yesterday - roll on Fathers day! ... See MoreSee Less
Bob and his team have been busy at the track again this week, with more progress on the new timing boards. The panels are all installed - so just the electrickery to go. One step closer! ... See MoreSee Less
It's unfortunate to see that our mates across the ditch are in the unenviable position of having to cancel their biggest annual event, and that COVID-19 is once again hammering our favourite pass-time.The Board of Wllowbank Raceway has been constantly monitoring the current situation regarding restrictions imposed around the country as a result of the Covid-19 Virus.
With the current status of border closures between Victoria, NSW and Queensland, the board has been left with no option but to CANCEL the 2020 Gulf Western Oils Winternationals scheduled on the weekend of 17 -20 September 2020 due to a lack of ability for competitors to attend Willowbank Raceway.
The Board is very disappointed with having to make this decision, but in order to host the truly national event, all states should be represented and this is not achievable under the current circumstances.
The Board has determined that any competitor that has been entered in this year’s event, will be offered a transfer of their entry fee to next year’s event with no price increase applied for any competitors that accept this offer.
Spectators that have purchased tickets to this year’s event, will be offered a transfer to next year’s event with no additional price increase from this year’s event.
Importantly, both these offers will ensure that these ticket holders and competitors are locked into this year’s pricing.
Willowbank Raceway will be in contact with all competitors and ticket purchasers over the next three weeks, to provide updated information and full details of all the options available to them including transfer, credit or a refund if requested.
On a positive note, Willowbank is planning for an event, utilising our Queensland based competitors and if possible those from interstate, which will take place later this year.
Those ticket holders that retain their tickets for the 2021 Gulf Western Oils Winternationals will also have as an added bonus, the benefit of being granted exclusive access to purchase tickets to attend this new event being added to our calendar. This bonus will allow them to purchase tickets, prior to going on sale to the general public, under the limited capacity Covid-19 restrictions which remain in place.
