Steve Shelley, Owner of Pheasant Wood Circuit, announced the acquisition of Wakefield Park from Benalla Auto Club. The circuit was closed on 1st September 2022 after a long-running battle with noise restrictions. Steve Shelley is working closely with Goulburn Council and the community to ensure all the boxes are ticked as he navigates to secure the future of Wakefield Park Raceway. Recently on social media, Sheely wrote,” Recognising the vital role Wakefield Park plays in the motorsport and local Goulburn Mulwaree community we made the decision to invest in its future, guided by our shared love for the sport.”
“While there is work ahead of us, we are eagerly looking forward to commencing the necessary repairs and renovations, with the goal of reopening the circuit on a limited scale later this year.”
“Our vision extends beyond that, as we aspire to hoist substantive events in 2024, delivering exciting experiences for motorsport enthusiasts.”
‘We are dedicated to working hand in hand with our neighbours, in a spirit of unity, mutual respect and collaboration as we navigate the path ahead.”
Track Day Club is excited to return to our home track, Wakefield Park, with our members and our wider community, and we look to where we can support Team Shelley in all their endeavours as we work toward the reopening of Wakefield Park.
