New racing complex set for Australia

A $200 million (Aus.) motorsports complex has been given the official okay to be built in Pakenham, Victoria, Australia.


The Cardinia Motor Recreation and Education Park will be home to a 3.6km (2.2 miles) race track, a drag strip, pit facilities, a 1.4km (.869 miles) rallycross circuit, 900-meter (about a half-mile) go-kart circuit, driver education and experience center, 50,000 square meters of spectator viewing and grandstands, a sport shooting range, and vehicle storage buildings.


In addition, a trackside hotel will be built to enable guests to view the racing circuit. The motorsports complex is set to be completed within the next two years.


The venue is about 1300 meters (about 8/10s of a mile) away from residential properties and, of course, already noise concerns have been raised by some neighbors before work has even begun. 

DeJoria, Leong receive honors


NHRA Funny Car racer Alexis DeJoria was one of three inductees enshrined into the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame recently in Rosemont, IL.


DeJoria, a seven-time NHRA national event winner, joined an elite group of Italian-American athletes when she is recognized as a member of The Hall’s Class of 2019. Joining DeJoria were NFL star Glen Carano and the late Ralph ‘Babe’ Serpico. DeJoria also shared the stage with auto racing legend Mario Andretti as he was presented with The Hall’s first Lifetime Achievement Award.


DeJoria will return to NHRA Funny Car competition next season.

Longtime NHRA nitro team owner and tuner Roland Leong was honored last month at the Hawaii State Capitol to salute 55 years of being an ambassador for the state through his work in motorsports. Nicknamed “The Hawaiian,” Leong, 75, has been promoting the state throughout his driving and tuning career.
