Perth raceway safety audit handling probed

AAP logoAAP 15/11/2016

WA's Public Sector Commissioner has been asked to look into the handling of a safety audit that found there were "extreme risks" at Perth's Barbagallo Raceway where another competitor recently died.

The findings were handed to the Department of Sport and Recreation on November 4, one day before 21-year-old motorcyclist Chris Adley died after falling onto the track into the path of his competitor - the sixth fatality at the Wanneroo track in 16 years.

Last week, motorcycle racing at the venue was suspended indefinitely after the department wrote to the owners, the WA Sporting Car Club.

Sport and Recreation Minister Mia Davies told parliament on Tuesday she was concerned about the handling of the draft report, saying she only became aware of it through the media and had referred the matter to the Public Sector Commissioner.
