Sydney International Speedway

The NSW Government is delivering a world class speedway within Western Sydney Parklands’ Precinct 5: Eastern Creek Motor Sports which will be an exciting addition to the existing motorsport precinct and create a Motorplex destination for international, national and local racing events. 

The project will boost investment in Western Sydney and support the local economy by creating about 150 construction jobs.

The new speedway would be a key contributor to the NSW economy and support tourism in Western Sydney, bringing in interstate and overseas competitors, crews and spectators.

The current speedway site, located on Government-owned land at Clyde, is required to house a future stabling and maintenance facility for the Sydney Metro West project, a State significant project for New South Wales.

Sydney Metro has worked closely with the NSW Office of Sport and Western Sydney Parklands Trust in planning for the new speedway and consulted with motorsport operators, including Sydney Dragway.

The new speedway is proposed to be built on land owned and managed by Western Sydney Parklands Trust. Subject to planning approvals, construction is planned to commence in the second half of 2020 and is expected to be completed by the start of the speedway racing season in 2021.

Key features:  

•    A new world-class clay-based racetrack for both speedway cars and motorcycles including sprint, wingless sprint, street stockers, V8 dirt modified and Formula 500 cars
•    A new grandstand and terraced seating to accommodate up to 7000 spectators
•    Public amenities, corporate boxes, food, beverage and merchandise outlets
•    Dedicated parking for speedway competitors and spectators
•    Additional overflow parking with flexibility to be used for dragway events
•    Dual access to the precinct by creating new vehicle access to the speedway pit area via a new intersection built off Ferrers Road
•    A dedicated competitor pit area to service the speedway
•    Workshops, garages and trackside support services.

The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Sydney International Speedway was open for community feedback from 19 August to 16 September 2020. Submissions have now closed.

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment will provide Sydney Metro with a copy of all submissions received during the exhibition period. Sydney Metro will review all the submissions and prepare a Submissions Report to respond to any issues raised.
