This is probably one of a few race tracks in the world that you can actually drive on.
For most of the year, the track is a public road that leads to scenic lookouts. There is 2 way traffic and the speed limit is 60kph. There are approx. 40 private residences located in and around the circuit, as well as Business's like Accommodation, Winery, Restaurant and fruit orchards, as well as other Sporting associations and Kangaroo's to watch out for!
Go for a drive around the track, but do not speed, as the Police are often around to catch the “Rev Heads.”
Imagine being at the start, the roar of motors as you head up the Mountain around “Hell Corner” and up “Mountain straight”, through “the Cutting” and the “Esses” , getting around the tight “Forrests’s Elbow” and then hitting 300+kmsp/h down the 1.9km “Conrad Straight” before slowing for the “Chase tunnel,” “The Chase,” and “Murray’s corner” and then receiving the checkered flag at the end of the “great race.”
Think of the fastest man, "Greg Murphy" who has the record of doing it in the time of 2.06.89.
And of Peter Brock, who won this race 9 times out of 30 starts.
It makes you understand how good the driver’s of these cars are!
