Motocross fanatic plans $1m complex

Nelson | Thursday, 20 November 2008

A British immigrant and motocross fan is spending $1 million of his own money to build an off-road motorcycle park near Murchison where bikers can ride without the noise annoying neighbours.

Richard Collins has bought a 404-hectare farm in the Tutaki Valley to build the park, which will have two race tracks and a series of off-road trails.

The park will also have clubrooms, a bar and a visitor accommodation block.

Mr Collins, who moved to New Zealand more than three years ago, said some people would probably think he was a "nutter" because he didn't expect to recoup the large amount of money he was putting into the project.

However, he said it was not about the money.

He was passionate about the sport and wanted to build a park where riders, especially young riders, could develop their skills and race.

He had ridden professionally in the United Kingdom until he had a serious accident when he was 19.

His father had also ridden professionally and now his son was heavily involved in the sport, he said.

Mr Collins said he had decided to build the track as it was getting harder to find areas to ride where noise complaints from neighbours were not an issue.

It was also getting harder to get access to forestry tracks.

"I just felt everywhere we rode in the Tasman district there was always an issue with noise."

He had heard people talking about starting a track for the three years he was in New Zealand, and had decided he needed to take action on his own, or nothing would be done.

"If no one's going to get off their backside and build a facility for these youngsters, when is it ever going to get done?"

The park would be open from 7am to 9pm from Monday to Sunday and was expected to be used by up to 100 riders a week.

Mr Collins said money gained from those using the track would be reinvested in the park.

He did not expect that gaining resource consent would be a major hurdle.

The park was 2.5km away from the nearest house and he didn't think noise would be an issue.

The site was largely surrounded by Department of Conservation land and forestry.

The resource consent application says DOC does not object to the proposal.

He did not think his park would conflict with a motorsport park planned near Kohatu, as that was largely for on-road motorsports. Submissions on the application close on Friday, December 12.
