The facilities at the Marrangaroo-based Lithgow Combined Districts Kart Club are set to be enhanced thanks to the NSW Government.
Bathurst MP Paul Toole today announced the club would receive funding of $101,120 to undertake a series of projects to enable it to host larger meetings.
“The improvements will include the replacement of dilapidated race control and technical inspection buildings with demountables. Landscaping and electrics works will also be undertaken,” Mr Toole said.
“These works are needed so the club can host larger meetings by providing a higher standard of race facilities. It is expected the improvements will allow many more state and national level events to be held at the facility.”
Mr Toole said the Lithgow Combined Districts Kart Club is committed to the promotion of the sport and supporting the local community and has, as a priority, indicated it wants to host more high profile events and attract more people to the region.
“Kart racing is a sport which nearly every professional race driver has participated in as well as being a family sport that combines competition with sportsmanship,” he said.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro said the roll out of the second round projects takes Stronger Country Communities funding to $300 million.
“The $300 million Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $1.6 billion Regional Growth Fund that is employing local tradies, putting local suppliers to work and providing the right environment to operate regional businesses,” he said.
