Forum announcement - 2 March 2018 - it has now been a month since AusRotary relaunched and things are going great. In that time, we have had over 800 registered users access the site (on top of tens of thousands of guests), which just goes to demonstrate that this community still means a lot to so many people even if they don't post here regularly. The positive reception and feedback you have given regarding the improved layout and new functionality has been much appreciated. With your help, we have further fine tuned a few things and improved website speed & performance. But we're not done yet, with plans to continue introducing new features to make this place better and better. An example is our new post like system (link) which we encourage you all to use generally (especially if you are a forum lurker!). There are more ideas in the pipeline too, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, the best way to keep this community going is by posting new content and sharing photos/videos/articles/events you come across. If you were going to put it on social media, post it here too - many of our members don't use popular social media platforms whatsoever. Sharing content directly to and from AusRotary is now easy, so don't be shy.

Thanks again for all your loyal support and the great build logs, tech advice and knowledge you contribute.

Sydney Motorsport Park – ARDC Membership Forum Special

#1 Post by motorculture » Tue Jun 10, 2014 8:39 pm


Hi guys and girls,

Most of you may be familiar with the original 3.93km Eastern Creek Raceway circuit - you may have had your most memorable moments at the circuit at ATCC or V8 Supercar rounds, or maybe you were lucky enough to have the chance to race on the circuit. What you may not know is that in 2011, the circuit underwent a $12 million dollar upgrade which enabled the original 3.93km GP circuit to be split into four different configurations, creating a motorsport megaplex now known as Sydney Motorsport Park (SMSP). The new facility is just about utilised every day of the year, from car and bike track days and grass-roots racing through to massive motorsport and entertainment events. Whether you’re a car enthusiast, avid motorsport supporter or even an amateur competitor there will definitely be something on the cards that sparks your interest.


The original 3.93 kilometre Grand Prix circuit is now renamed the Gardner GP Circuit.



The new 4.5km Brabham Circuit combines the classic Grand Prix layout with an additional 830m of track that branches out from the southern end of the circuit.


GP North was the first new circuit for Sydney Motorsport Park, created via the addition of a link road between turns four and fifteen, utilising the northern half of the Grand Prix circuit.


Running around the famous Corporate Hill, GP South incorporates the 830m extension from turn 6 through to turn 14. For more detailed information on new circuit configurations visit:

A Supersprint is a speed event where cars are sent out onto the circuit in pairs to set their fastest single lap. The pairings are sent out at 10-second intervals, with the fastest at the front to minimise overtaking. It is not a race - in fact, anyone found to be “racing” is sent straight to the stewards. It’s a race against the clock!
