Due to the recent thoroughbred meeting on April 3 at Motukarara, a delegation consisting of Stipendiary Stewards, Harness Racing New Zealand Track Consultant John Denton and Motukarara Track Manager Scott Edmonds inspected the track last week and for safety reasons recommended to the club committee to install pylons for the meeting on Sunday the April 15.

The pylons will be in place from just past the winning post and ease out to three metres. They will carry on to the 800 metre mark.

From the 800 metres until the home straight the pylons will be out two metres.

This, in effect, will create a passing lane at the entrance of the home straight.
