Dubbo’s Morris Park Motorsport precinct users and spectators will benefit from funding from the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants Program.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders announced the Dubbo City Speedway Club has received $57,577 for new infrastructure from the latest round of ClubGrants funding.
“This funding will be used by the club to install 5 grandstands with shade at the Morris Park Motorsports complex, with each grandstand having the capacity to seat 40 adults,” Mr Saunders said.
“The club has previously been successful in receiving funding from the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnerships Program for the construction of a control tower, office and clubroom.
“This new infrastructure will increase the club’s opportunities to host high quality meetings, which in turn brings visitors to Dubbo, providing a welcome boost to the economy.”
Dubbo City Speedway Club Secretary Tiana Spears said the club was delighted to receive the funding.
“This grant will allow us to provide elevated seating for patrons to use as we continue to grow our events and provide a more user friendly venue.”
The Infrastructure Grants program is made possible by ClubGrants Category 3, a fund which re-invests profits from registered clubs’ gaming machines into community projects.
Since 2015, the NSW Government has funded more than 520 community projects worth more than $81 million under the Infrastructure Grants program.
