DRIVEIT is a combined Motorsport and Driver Education Facility which I strongly support.
In 2019, I was able to secure $5M to deliver critcal road infrastructure to access the DriveIT site.
Over many years, Thuringowa lost its Dragway and Speedway; and Karting has been restricted due to residential growth. Motorsport has a massive following with over 150,000 people attending the Townsville 400 annually.
As a former paramedic, I also see major benefits in the Driver Education aspect to enable driver training of our emergency services in Nth Qld and the opportunity for Defence are endless.
I wont stop fighting to see DriveIT come to fruition.
