Australia advice needed.

Hi Australian dudes,
looks like I may have the possibility of a job opening in Perth.
Have got quite into the track day routine here in Europe over the last 10 years or so. Are there many track day options in the Perth area?

Also, I have 2 European R bikes. How hard is it importing vehicles from abroad and what would be the expected costs for all the bureaucracy?

Any info greatly appreciated.

They have Barbagallo race way I hear it's a good track but not too much more I don't think .
We don't get over there as its too far away from the rest of Australia . Perth is a great city .
It's not too hard to ship your bikes here I have some contacts if you decide to bring them with you .
Thanks from 990Glen

Hi,

we have 2 race tracks in perth Barbagallo race way and Collie Motorplex.

Barbagallo: 30 mins from CBD, Pretty short track i lap it around 65/66 seconds pro guys are into the high 50 seconds


Collie Motorple: 3 hour drive from perth, never gone down to do a track day their but my mates tell me it is an awesome little track


We also have RAC DTEC / Driving Centre, which is a short road course with 2 skid pads



There are afew compaines which run track days here, price vary. i do champions ride days they are great, well priced and you normally get some good time on the track over the day

Regarding importing your 2 bikes, Australia has something called Personal Import law, where you are allow to bring in one vehicle if you can prove you have live overseas for more than a year and also own the vehicle for more than a year

Here is all the information you will need to know about it: https://infrastructure.gov.au/vehicl...tions/pis.aspx


If you need any more information just let me know
Thanks from 990Glen

Can we ride at that RAC track?
Collie is too far to go and would be nice to have another alternative to Wanaroo .
I am just back on a bike after many years and keen to do as many track days as i can. Bike almost run in!

you sure can, however you need to do some advance safety course thing before they let you go on the road course. i see if i can find the link details somewhere
