We are fortunate that in the Territory, we have excellent relations with our Department of Sport and Recreation and importantly with our Territory Government who have demonstrated a commitment to Territory motor sport through a range of facility development activities and event funding across the NT. Of course, we are very keen to see this continue into the future regardless of the outcome of this year’s Territory Elections.
MotorSports NT continues to represent affiliated clubs to Government and will continue to actively lobby on behalf of our members but more importantly we are setting the highest standards in Governance. It has been a Board priority since inception to ensure that as Peak Body we provide the best possible advice and guidance on Risk Management, Good Governance practice, Committee Roles, Policy and planning activities.
MotorSports NT as an apolitical body will continue to make sure the elected Northern Territory Government continues to understand that we represent a huge proportion of Territory constituents across a broad range of our society.
Politicians of all persuasions need to understand that motor sport in the Territory generates and contributes significantly to our economy, this financial year alone some $80 million is estimated to be directly attributable to motor sport events. It is essential that ongoing funding for events and infrastructure is maintained to ensure this contribution continues to grow and that we assist in “driving the Territory economy”!
Motor Sports in the Northern Territory is extremely healthy and it is our aim to continue to actively promote motor sport, attract new volunteers and officials retain our existing ones and we will continue to strive for the best possible outcomes for our affiliated member clubs.
