The West Australian government is now formally working with Supercars on plans to construct a street circuit at Burswood Park in Perth’s CBD, with the hope it will join the calendar in 2026.

“Imagine the noise, atmosphere and crowds as V8s fly around a new and specially designed race track in Burswood Park, just a stone’s throw from the city. It’ll be incredible,” said WA Deputy Premier and Tourism Minister, Rita Saffioti.

“The Supercars SuperSprint at Wanneroo has been a much-loved event on the annual tourism calendar for many years now, and this will no doubt take it to the next level on a much bigger stage for more fans and visitors to enjoy.

“We know how passionate and enthusiastic motorsport fans are, and I know locally they’ve been wanting this to happen for some time, particularly when they’ve seen similar circuits built in other cities across the country.

“It’s really exciting to see this vision start to become a reality, and of course will have broader community benefits year-round with permanent grandstands and upgrades to the park.”

Supercars CEO, Shane Howard added: “Supercars is incredibly excited to receive news that a street circuit at Burswood Park is in the works for the future.

“The Perth street circuit event will be a spectacular addition to our championship calendar, showcasing Western Australia to a huge national and international audience.

“I want to thank Premier Roger Cook and the West Australian Government for their unwavering support in helping create what will undoubtedly be an unforgettable event for Perth and Supercars.”
