Excitement is building at the Albany Motorcycle Club as progress continues towards the establishment of its new home at the in-development Albany Motorsport Park. Aerial shots of the Drome site show the first element of the park — a 2.4km motocross track — made headway since work was green-lit late last year. AMC president Matt Pearce said progress was very exciting as it had “been a long-time in the making” to get it to happen. “This will be a massive boost for the club because it hasn’t had a home for quite some time,” he said. “Numbers have definitely struggled and dwindled off in that time since we’ve had a home, so this will be a huge boost.” Mr Pearce, who has had numerous opportunities to visit the site as a member of the Great Southern Motorplex Group, said other members of the AMC were increasingly impressed every opportunity they had to see the track. “The committee members of the motorcycle club have only been out there a couple of times and they are 100 per cent blown away every time,” he said. “It’s actually even better than those aerial shots show now because it’s green in between the track and looks really good.” Construction of a track-side clubhouse has now also been put out for tender, with Mr Pearce hopeful AMC will be able to move into its new home in May 2024. “We’re really excited for everything to roll around and can’t wait to then host some decent events and get everything up and running again,” he said. Completing the track and clubhouse is part of the first stage of the Albany Motorsport Park project, which has been allocated funding from State and Federal Governments and local contributions. A race track precinct is part of the next stage of work planned for the site.
