Motorsports Industry Research – Discussion Paper

Locale Consulting was engaged by Goulburn Mulwaree Council’s Economic Development Unit to prepare a discussion paper on the current and future opportunities presented by the motorsports industry. Goulburn and surrounding areas have a number of important and emerging motorsport facilities – including the Wakefield Park racing circuit, which is one of only two full sized road racing circuits in NSW.

The project sought to assist Council and the industry more generally in recognising the opportunities that may be available, and what needs to be done to achieve them. As the industry is both highly valuable to the regional economy, as well as being of potentially high impact to other land uses, there are certainly many issues to balance.

The project highlighted both short and long-term opportunities, including for both on and off-road activities, as well as building on existing facilities to establish a more cohesive and co-ordinated industry cluster.
