The Ipswich Turf Club welcomes the step towards members, owners and the general public returning to the track as part of the Racing Queensland Covid-19 Safe Plan by Queensland Health, however, has concerns given the Club’s current accessibility.
Chairman Wayne Patch said it was currently impractical under remaining restrictions and a partial construction zone to open to 20 patrons and that the Club will delay opening further until stage three.
“It’s unmanageable to have any patrons other than essential participants and staff at the track,” Mr Patch said.
“Our stalls and surrounding areas are under construction resulting in limited accessibility.
“We are working towards welcoming more patrons back on the 18th July which should be the first meeting in line with the current stage three Road Map.”Back to list
