New 10 year lease on life for motor sport bodies

GLADSTONE District Dirt Riders Club and the Central Queensland Drag Racing Association were awarded new 10-year leases over amended lease areas on Wednesday.

Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers said the new leases would end a stalemate between the motor sport bodies.

"The new leases better reflect the boundaries of the respective sites and will help resolve ongoing disagreements between the two groups and allow for proposed car park, camping ground and extended pit area facilities to be developed," she said.

"This decision ensures both the Gladstone District Dirtriders Club and the Central Queensland Drag Racing Association can continue to develop their respective facilities over the lifetime of the new lease agreements."

Gladstone Dirtriders secretary Julie Maeyke said the boundary issues were only a problem on paper as the boundaries were not drawn up correctly when the area was mapped and did not affect the functioning of the two clubs.
