An ambitious R620-million redevelopment project for East London’s Grand Prix circuit leapt to a new level when Buffalo City Metro (BCM) voted for Border Motorsport Club to be given a 20-year lease, sending the plan to turn the track into an international motorsport, technology and tourism destination on an exciting warmup lap. The R302 000-a-year deal bucks the trend as BCM is whittling down its long leases for sport clubs, with West Bank Golf Club running on a month-to-month lease and others, such as the prestigious East London Golf Club, left with only a handful of years on the clock. This approval gives the multi-stakeholder East London Grand Prix Foundation the go-ahead to start raising investment.
