Bunbury International Circuit-Western Australia

THE CIRCUIT
The plan is for the Circuit to host two international-standard motorsport events in 2005, with an increase to four major events per year over the next two or three years.

Circuit Infomation:
Location: 7km South East of Bunbury, Australia
Course Length: 4000m
Main Straight: 800m
Width: 15m
Direction: Clockwise
Turns: 13

The new multi-purpose International Racing Circuit at Bunbury will incorporate;
* An International Racing Circuit.
* A Racing Driver Academy with international accreditation.
* Corporate incentive days & hospitality facilities.
* Driver training and education facilities.
* Vehicle component testing.
* Conferences & exhibitions.
* Regional events & concerts.
* Community based activities.
* Motor sports officials' training academy.
* A Rally Circuit and off road facilities.


Does Anyone have any infomation about the events wich will be held there this year. Is there still the slightest cance of still having a round of the Formula Nippon Race and/or the JGTC (now Super GT) race??????

cavvy should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The chief Ross Roberts tried to be involved in making the WA V8 round a street event - first event April 2005 - pipe dream?

I don't think it has. I heard PIMM may be having difficulty finding finance for the project

The track looks good with a lot of passing opportunities. It should boast good racing whatever catergory races there

I am yet to see/hear anything that suggests otherwise

They did get council approval for the circuit around 6 months ago

Maybe they should take a leaf out of another circuit about to be built, and get the financials in place before winding up the PR machine.

JDI: it will be very interesting, but for exactly the opposite reasons that Bunbury feels the need to wave the banner those involved with the circuit are keeping it low key.

Last i heard Kilcoy looked like being a goer. I'm sure Crash would know more about it though.
