NEW CARDINIA CIRCUIT

There is a planned new race track called Cardinia near Pakenham south east of Melbourne.

It apparently is intended to take over from Sandown when that track closes

As usual it sees full of wide eyed optimism, catering for everthing below F1.

Does anyone know more about it?

Apex Circuit Design is behind the planned circuit layout, a 3.7km track with apparent elevation for an overpass across a service road.

Apex’s resume includes Sydney Motorsport Park and the Seppang International Circuit, as well as some Rallycross tracks and street cicuits. It’s also behind a long-running proposal for a motorsport park at Avalon, Victoria.

“Our track layout design will be finalised by our automotive design consultants Apex Circuit Design, so the final track layout will be put through their simulation programs, designed to FIA Grade 2 and FIM Grade B and have multiple configurations available,” the Cardinia proposal spokesperson tells MOTOR.

As the name suggests, the complex is intended as both a motorsport precinct and a driver training centre, with the split expected to be about 50:50.
The NIMBY's are already putting in concerns regarding the potential for noise complaints.... to end or limit the track’s development.

While it's located on about 1.5 Km from the Freeway, it's also only another maybe 200 metres to the existing housing estates in that area, I'd be surprised if it ever goes ahead.

I thought that. Even the straights aren't straight. Probably fun for driving and lousy for racing.

Here's some history: FROM August 2010

Quote:
By Jade Lawton LOCAL P-platers could undertake defensive driver training for as little as $50 when Pakenham gets its long-awaited motorsports facility. Speaking at a community meeting on Monday night, Pakenham Lions Club member Graham Cockerall urged the council to take action and start work on the centre, which was announced in 2006.
