A statment on the Frankston City Council's web site has confirmed that the Frankston Motorcycle Park is on track to re-open this October.
The venue was closed indefinatley earlier this year after two major accidents that included the passing of 20 year old Danny Edlington over the Easter Long in April this year and another separate serious crash that left 21 year old Bodie Tattam paralysed.
After the venue was closed a transition committee was formed as the local council looked at the best way to move forward with the popular riding park.
The Transition Committee for the Frankston Motorcycle Park - which includes members of Council and Frankston City Motor Cycle Park Incorporated (the club) ‰ÛÒ is on schedule to re-open the park in mid-October according to the post on the councils web site.
Council has approved a new management model for the park, while the club is this weekend hosting a meeting of its members to discuss the details. Once the club is ready to commit, the agreement will be officially signed and a specific re-opening date announced.
Under the management model, Council will lease the facility to the club, who will operate the facility under an affiliation with Motorcycling Victoria (MV), which will see club members covered by MV‰Ûªs insurance policy. The lease will be for 11 months, reviewed monthly.
‰ÛÏThe club will manage the fees and memberships at the motorcycle park and we look forward to them announcing further detail on this in the coming weeks,‰Û
