Wakefield Park Seeking Feedback on Plans to Improve Facilities

The team at Wakefield Park are planning a series of improvements to the circuit facilities and would like our input on the plans so far, as well as our ideas for how to improve the circuit.

Community Information and Feedback Sessions are planned for Tuesday, the 1st of September, 2020, from 4-6pm and Saturday the 5th of September from 11am to 2pm. An online form is also available on the Wakefield Park website at the following link.

Wakefield Park is seeking approval for the following changes:

  • Construct a new 2-3 storey multi-purpose pit lane building to facilitate more corporate and industry events (and generally quieter) cars;
  • Demolish some buildings;
  • Relocate current service centres (including the café, medical centre, offices, control tower, ticket/sales office, media centre); 
  • Enhance our ability to host a greater variety of events;
  • Revitalise the camping area;
  • Formalise access and parking areas for large events;
  • Confirm certain existing site approvals; and 
  • Accurately reflect the site’s current uses in consideration of management measures under Council’s January 2020 Prevention Notice

We wholeheartedly support Wakefield Park’s efforts to upgrade the circuit, and hope you’ll take the opportunity to share your thoughts for the circuit’s future.

  1. A. Excellent addition to pit lane but suggest the parking area behind also be tar sealed for transporter and big trailer parking.
    B. Carports could be upgraded with benches, better lighting and waterproofing … maybe better drains in front and an apron like a veranda in front of each bay especially facing South .
    C. Track is rough and too narrow in places and could also be a little longer without adding tiny corners … another km would be excellent.
    Essentially it was designed as a Club circuit but has tried to act above its weight so with this massive improvement to the pit row … everything else above is essential.
