Project summary

The Eastern Creek Speedway (Speedway) designed by Cox Architecture is a world-class Speedway within Western Sydney Parklands’ Eastern Creek Motor Sports Precinct. The project is purpose-built for the growing demands of the sport, its participants, spectators, and local stakeholders. It is a Motorplex destination for international, national and local racing events.Constructed from prefabricated modules, the building provides new food and beverage outlets, amenities, and corporate boxes. The dynamic slanted roof form is inspired by the wings of sprint cars, while colour is used to highlight building componentry as an homage to the automotive tradition of the red brake calliper and yellow shock absorber. The building supports a new world-class clay-based racetrack for both speedway cars and motorcycles including sprint, wingless sprint, street stockers, V8 dirt modified and Formula 500 cars.

New South Wales Jury Presentation

The former speedway site, located on Government-owned land at Clyde, was required to house a stabling and maintenance facility for the Sydney Metro West project. Sydney Metro was tasked with the responsibility to build a new world-class venue to support the continuation of this vital part of Sydney’s sporting economy.

World leaders in motorsport design informed the project from inception, ensuring delivery resulted in an integrated five-star speedway and infrastructure benchmarked to national and international best practice.

The new speedway is compliant with Speedway Australia 5-Star Track Standards (the highest rating) and FIM (Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme).
