A proposed motorsport facility at Bushells Ridge on the Central Coast of New South Wales is one step closer to reality, thanks to new support from local businesses.

Organisers for the proposed Community Automotive Sport And Recreation (CASAR) Park hope to offer driver training and track-day experiences along with promotion for local tourism and jobs.

North Constructions and Virtual Motorsport Design have both thrown support behind the venture, offering valuable resources and design expertise to the not-for-profit organisation.

"The economic and social significance of this project for the Central Coast is clear,” North Constructions Managing Director, Tim Cornish, said. “At North Constructions, we have the resources to support it and we're proud to make them available to the CASAR Park team."

Further support for the facility has come from Virtual Motorsport Design proprietor, Neil Faichney, who has prepared a track simulation video (seen at the top of this page).

Mr Faichney said that the chosen site for CASAR Park has provided some unique challenges.

"The Bushells Ridge site is very interesting topographically and provides some good rise and fall, which is really at the heart of any great motor racing circuit. In that regard we believe the track is going to prove very popular when it is built." Mr Faichney said.

Park co-founder, Brad Wilson, praised the generosity of the two businesses, saying their support was “worth tens of thousands of dollars” to the project.

The motoring complex will form Stage One of the CASAR Park project, with Stage Two to provide further infrastructure for tourism, training and recreation, at a total investment of over $25 million.

CASAR Park estimates it can generate $17 million annually in benefits to the local economy, with approximately 200 jobs and 200 training positions onsite once the facility is fully operational, plus a further 150 indirect jobs.

The project received support from the local council (Wyong) in August last year.

CASAR Park is still seeking further support and financial backing, but with the donations and sponsorship already in place, the team hopes to begin development application studies in the next few months.

Meanwhile, the proposed establishment of a $15 million Motorcycling NSW owned and operated motorsport facility at Yerriyong, near Nowra in the Shoalhaven district, is also progressing.
