The first steps in Barbagallo Raceway’s multimillion dollar government funded redevelopment has begun.
Barbagallo’s iconic infield tower has been demolished, making way for a new pit lane that has been established to create room for new modern garages and paddock facilities.
Stage 1 of the redevelopment has been instigated to secure the return of the V8 Supercars Championship for the next four years.
The new structure will also provide better facilities for West Australian motorsport competitors and organisations.
The new facility will be complete before the 2012 V8 event.
