Share post:

THE ROAD has finally been cleared for motor sport’s return to Vaucluse, St Thomas.

It’s just a matter of getting the green light.

A racing permit is all that’s needed now to stage competitive racing at the central venue following a Supreme Court ruling in favour of Friends of Motor Sport Inc. that quashed enforcement and stop notices issued by the office of the Chief Town Planner 14 years ago.

Justice Dr Sonia Richards handed down the 44-page judgement last week after the Town and Country Development Planning Office had initially deemed certain engineering works at Vaucluse in 2000 “unauthorised development” while determining that lands reserved for agriculture had been converted to use for motor sport.
