$290,000 for motor sports

WHITSUNDAY Moto Sports Club will receive more than $290,000 from the state government to build a motor sports track at Gunyarra.

Motor sports participants will benefit from the funding with a new track that will have areas for go-karting, motorcycle road racing, quad bike racing and supermotard.

Member for Whitsunday Jan Jarratt said that the motor sports track adds to the already high level of sporting facilities offered in the Whitsundays.

“Our local sporting clubs, just like the Whitsunday Moto Sports Club, are the lifeblood of the community,” she said.

“This infrastructure funding will provide a major boost to the area by creating jobs and giving people what they want and need.

“It will help increase their membership numbers and provide more opportunities for people to get involved and get active.”

Queensland Sports Minister Phil Reeves said these initiatives were designed to recruit volunteers and encourage individuals and communities to participate in sport and recreation.

“We want to help Queenslanders' become Australia's healthiest people by reducing obesity levels by one-third by 2020,” Mr Reeves said.

“Our investment helps Queenslanders with their fitness goals. We will continue to invest in the health and well-being of Queenslanders.”
