Road Closures

Racewars in conjunction with the Street Car Racing Association of WA will be hosting the inaugural “Racewars Sprint” event between Middleton Beach and Mount Adelaide on Monday, March 4, 2019.

The vision for the “Racewars Sprint” is to build on the success of the runway racing event at Albany Airport and create a new high-quality addition to not just the Racewars weekend, but to Albany’s appeal to motoring enthusiasts.

To hold the event and complete preparation work to meet best-practice motorsport safety standards, Racewars will need to close a number of roads within the Middleton Beach and Mount Adelaide areas. 

The following roads are expected to be closed from midnight, Sunday, March 3 until 

midnight, Monday, March 4:

    

Flinders Parade from Middleton Road to Adelaide Crescent

Adelaide Crescent from Golf Links Road to Flinders Parade

Marine Terrace from Middleton Road to Adelaide Crescent

Marine Drive from Flinders Parade to Burgoyne Road

Burgoyne Road from Brunswick Road to Marine Drive

Forts Road

   

Every effort will be made to reopen Forts Road, Burgoyne Road and Marine Drive west of Forts Road by 6pm on Monday, March 4 to allow public access to the Field of Light.

   

Boardwalk Closure

Middleton Beach Boardwalk will also be closed from 6am to 6pm on March 4 for the safety of the public.

It is important for public safety that all road closures and barricades are respected, however there will be event marshals on hand to help with access where necessary.

  

Noise

Motorsport and associated activities generate considerable noise. To manage this, racing will be confined to between 9am and 5.30pm, however there will be vehicle movements and some temporary increased traffic associated with the event before and after the racing time.

  

National Anzac Centre Access

Residents and visitors wanting to access The Forts and National Anzac Centre will be able to catch a free shuttle bus approximately every 30 minutes in between races, from 9.30am to 5.30pm. These buses will be running from Middleton Beach and Albany Visitor Centre.

Any residents or staff within The Forts precinct who need to move to or from the area during the road closure times will be able to do so under the escort of the Clerk of the Course during scheduled racing breaks.

    

For further detailed information about this event please contact the Clerk of Course: Dieter Von Mollendorf via email (Dieter@racewars.com.au), follow Racewars on social media, or visit the Racewars webpage at https://www.racewars.com.au/event .

Racewars organisers appreciate the community’s support and patience during the running of this event and will make every effort to minimise disruption to the area.
