The topography looks to be......modest. Not quite as flat as a tack, but unlikely to inspire imaginative cinematography. Still, I suppose you can only work with what you have.

I'm sure the concept is something like http://www.millermotorsportspark.com/ but i fear the reality may end up being something like....mallala.

Does beg the question though, does the organising body have any interest in ensuring the suitability of facilities by investing its own money?

Anything happening at Tailem Bend - it's been very quiet since the public funding announcement ?.

Even with the new press of the V8s coming, it's still a pain in the butt trying to sort out some of the basic track information. Layouts posted various places don't match up, and the video simulations just released indicate more link roads and configurations than even the track's website shows.

Here are a few tidbits.

Simulated onboard with basic article:
https://www.foxsports.com.au/motorsp...e9bd6983d317b7

Simulation from TV views:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIOC9lnDnxg

I wish the article had an integrated outline for the full slate of layouts, showing where that particular configuration fits in.

Also, the circuit with the main pits (West Circuit, I think), looks pretty dull on its own.

A tour around the course with Greg Rust:

Still haven't sen a good diagram of the layout the Supercars are actually supposed to use, and I'm a bit dubious as to whether some of those corners will really be as quick as they're claiming. We shall see.

Thanks for looking. Yeah, I've seen that basic outline. Thankfully, as I've checked again, the official track website has actually updated the track diagrams, so at least some of them show more of the link roads and roughly how it all fits together.

I just wish there was something less crude out there, for one, to give a better idea of the actual shape of some of the corners. The elevation changes and cambered corners are nice, but I'm not convinced about how it will translate to the actual racing.

I hope this place "pops" more than, say, the track formerly known as Miller Motorsport Park, but I'm really not sure that it will. (Please put in some trees, and make sure there are landmarks, other than the pit building.)
