SYDNEY MOTORSPORT PARK’S NEW MENU FOR SUCCESS WITH GEMA GROUP PARTNERSHIP.
The Australian Racing Drivers’ Club (ARDC) has partnered with leading hospitality and major event caterer (GEMA GROUP) on a new multi-year agreement covering all corporate hospitality and retail catering at Sydney Motorsport Park (SMSP).
The agreement, beginning July 2023, sees GEMA further expand their position as the premier provider of hospitality and catering across Australian motorsport, adding full-time SMSP operations to their coverage of the Formula 1, MotoGP, and Australia-wide Supercars Championships, as well as multiple services at national and international major events, other high-profile venues and leading sporting stadia across the country.
Together, GEMA and the ARDC, along with their other key stakeholders, aim to significantly raise the stakes on the range of foods available, as well as introducing some well-known brands to the circuit. Venue infrastructure will see a significant upgrade, and the integration with new technologies will help streamline the service offering from “plate to paddock”.
The Gema Group was founded in 1984 by the Valenti family and has grown into a sizable catering company with over 40 active catering contracts and sites. Gema Group has over 450 years of combined senior management catering experience and expertise at our fingertips. We pride ourselves on our committed and collaborative approach with our clients and partners in delivering some of Australia’s most memorable catering.

Sustainability at the Park
For composting, most of their packaging is bio-degradable or compostable and managed by Closed Loop as part of their waste management services, while organic waste is collected for compost, and waste oil is collected weekly and turned into biofuel.
Where possible, they will also be transitioning our packaging products to recyclable and upcycled Closed Loop products.
