Calder Park and Winton circuits are used mostly for club
events and Phillip Island is usually used for state and
national championship events.
Calder Park is located on the Calder Freeway, 25 km north-west of
The complex includes a 1.83 km NASCAR circuit, 400m drag strip,
1.45 km club race circuit and a 2.28 National race circuit.
Direction of racing on the race circuits is clockwise.
Sadly, due to
reasons beyond control, Calder Park has lost its
circuit racing license from CAMS. However,
racing continues on under the permits of the AAA
which is a controlling body alternative and in
competition with CAMS
Another fairly flat, turn in and squirt type of circuit that rewards a
well set up chassis and good brakes.
The circuit was recently extended and the main straights are
divided by a rather tricky flip-flop. The circuit is 2.03 km in
length and direction of racing is clockwise
Located about an hour north of Melbourne, 10 km north of
Benalla on the Old Hume Hwy.
A very fast and exciting circuit for superkarts,
particularly the big inch 250cc classes with the
second half of the long main straight being down hill followed by a
very fast right hand sweeper. Like Eastern Creek in N.S.W., this
track has it all with fast corners, slow corners, high speed
direction changes, up hill and down dale! There is something for
everybody at "The Island". 250cc F/E class
superkarts can reach speeds of around 240 kph here.
Like Eastern Creek, the track surface is fairly smooth
Some say this is as good a big kart track as any
in the world!
It is a very old circuit that has been resurrected after many
years of disuse into a world class Grand Prix circuit. The
Australian Motorcycle GP's are currently held at the Island and it
is a highly regarded race circuit by the GP bike fraternity.
It has a
mainstraight that seems to go on forever then
goes further on downhill into the most fearsome
flat out right hand sweeper. The following 180
Deg. left hand sweeper rises and then falls and
the track canber runs from positive to level and
then negative camber about half way around and
is a particularly difficult corner to set up
altitude changes and some blind apex corners
make this track a real challenge.
Phillip Island is 4.45 km in length, direction of racing is
anti-clockwise and the circuit is located 128 km south east of
Melbourne on Phillip Island.
