Queensland Raceway is 3.12 km long and 12 metres wide.
Racing will run clockwise. There are eight corners, with six gravel traps, at
least four overtaking areas under brakes and the circuit is flat except for a slight rise and fall on the back straight.
The circuit was designed with input from car and motorcycle racing authorities including CAMS
circuit expert Professor Rod Troutbeck.
Australian motorsport's two peak bodies, CAMS Limited and Motorcycling Australia, have approved the design.
The design was done to an FIA model, which shows a theoretical
top speed in a 1982 F1 car of 294 kmh at the end of the 750 m back straight.
Designers also considered data from a leading V8 Supercar team and expect the current tourers should see 260 kmh on the back straight and
160 kmh through the right-hand sweeper after pit straight
The track's north-south orientation means drivers will face the late-afternoon sun only on one short section between turns one and
The 50-car pits and public and corporate viewing mounds are all on the outside of the circuit. With no visual obstructions inside the track, spectators at any point will be able to follow cars for a full lap.
Noise won't be a problem. The rural setting is within a six-kilometre buffer zone and resident koalas and kangaroos have been long-used to the sounds of the neighboring Ebenezer open-cut coal mine and F-111 bombers from
Amberley air force base, not to say Australia's fastest top fuellers on the Willowbank drag strip.
