Greyhound Racing SA Strategic Projects Manager, Scott Wuchatsch, has provided the Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club with a further update on current, impending and future projects for the club.
“I will be engaging with the club to confirm that the current project list is correct. In addition, I have thrown in some possible projects – some of them quite aspirational – for the benefit of future discussion and planning,” he said.
“Expansion of the wash bay area and improvements to the track CCTV network should be completed by the end of the year. And by the end of January, a sectional camera should be installed and the maintenance shed expansion completed.”
Interestingly, the installation of pre-meeting empty out yards at Tara Raceway, first mooted some years ago, are expected to be completed by the end of March.
Pre-meeting empty out yards are commonplace at many Victorian greyhound tracks.
Wuchatsch said high on the list of future projects were a Regupol flooring system in the kennel house, formalisation of a road link between car parks and a new lure rail (SafeChase lure requirement).
“And as a medium priority is a full track rebuild (modern design principles). I guess you could say that’s one of the aspirational projects,” he said.
“Other projects to be considered down the track include a track lighting system, new video wall/semaphore board and trainers’ car park shade sails.”
