Motorsport Australia has advised that it will permanently close all non-Victorian offices in a bid to save costs, with many jobs to be lost.
In an email sent to MA members today, CEO Eugene Arocca said:
"Motorsport Australia is moving to centralise its administration operations at its Melbourne head office to reduce unnecessary costs and further improve our services to members. As such, our non-Victorian offices will now be permanently closed to the public.
"However, I can assure you that Motorsport Australia will continue to have a presence in each state and territory, with highly skilled staff dedicated to growing the sport and working with government and our affiliated clubs to increase participation at all levels.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has hit many sporting bodies hard and motorsport is not immune. Unfortunately, as a result of these necessary changes, a small number of positions will be made redundant.
"These decisions have been extremely difficult, however those individuals, whose roles are unfortunately redundant, will be well supported and also provided with professional assistance as they transition to new employment."
Arocca also announced that MA would simplify its administration processes by utilising latest technology.
