Allow motorsport to continue at the Hobart Queens Domain
This petition made change with 1,929 supporters!
Motorsport at the Hobart Queens Domain has been enjoyed by generations of Tasmanians, starting with the Australian Hillclimb Championship events of the 50s-70s, followed by Targa Tasmania in the 90s and 2000s.
Since 2003, Club Motori Italia (CMI) has continued the tradition of motorsport on the Domain. The event sees cars compete on a closed road against the clock one at a time, over a short (900m) section of the Upper Domain Rd under controlled conditions. The event is fully insured and run under strict conditions set down by the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport, the Hobart City Council and Tasmania Police. The ready access to the venue means that competitors' families and friends and other motorsport enthusiasts can easily attend for short periods throughout the day, or enjoy multiple viewing areas if they choose to stay for longer. Being a grass roots motorsport event means that the competitors in these events are people you know - a small business owner, a colleague, a friend, or a family member.
We ask the Hobart City Council to reinstate the proposed amendments to the Domain Summit Plan as put forward by Council staff to the Parks and Recreation Committee on 9/8/2018, specifically to:
- Install removable (rather than fixed) speed humps on the Upper Domain Road (from the crossroads to the summit)
- Allow for the opening of the boom gates on the summit loop for events
- Allow for approval of motorsport events at the Domain, as they have been a part of the history of the domain for 70 years
