KELLY RACING BREAKS GROUND ON FACILITY EXTENSION

Kelly Racing has broken ground on the significant expansion of its Braeside headquarters in Melbourne, Victoria.

The team announced in February that the workshop would be extended, increasing the size of Kelly Racing's facility to over 4000 square metres.

With the design of the extension now finalised, earthmoving equipment has moved in to begin the initial stages of construction on the new wing of Kelly Racing.

Upon completion in 2011, the new area of the workshop will house brand-new engine, paint, composite, machining, CNC and fabrication departments, allowing Kelly Racing to operate entirely under one roof in the same facility.

Todd Kelly said that it was another exciting milestone for he and brother Rick's race team, which was only officially launched in March last year.

"It's great to have things coming along with the new workshop," said Todd Kelly.

"We have taken our time with the design phase of the redevelopment as we wanted to give all our team members a lot of input in terms of what they wanted the new place to look like and how it will be laid out.

"Now we have the earthmoving equipment rolling in and the dirt is starting to move around. Every single person in our team is really excited to see construction kick off and we can't wait until it's ready to open."
