RACE teams look poised to enjoy vastly improved pit lane facilities at Queensland Raceway amid planned upgrades to the circuit in 2022.
Circuit management has shared the first images of what the planned new pit building will look like, replacing the existing carports and race control building that have been in place since the circuit was opened in 1999.
“Those that have attended the venue in the last six weeks will have already seen things changing, between the toilets getting a much-needed renovation to the sandstone blocks for seating in the shade to the new paths and the generally cleaner space we now have,” Queensland Raceway’s general manager Neil Lewis said in a letter sent to the circuit’s customers and patrons.
“But I am pleased to say this is nowhere near the end of what’s to come, the pictures attached to this post, which you no doubt looked at before reading this, is a look into the next 6-8 months.
“Facilities that we can all be proud of and that will establish Queensland Raceway as the premier motorsport venue in Queensland. I can’t share a whole lot more but let me just say this isn’t the end of it.
“Track upgrades are in discussion, better lighting and many, many other things are all on the table.
“We can’t wait to welcome you to a Queensland Raceway you can be proud of. We are also very excited for what is to come and what Queensland Raceway can provide to the greater motorsport communities in Australia.”
The circuit will host rounds of the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championship and Australian Superbike Championship in 2022.
