Motor (Australia) - - THE NEWS -

ONE OF Aus­tralia’s largest mo­tor­sport fa­cil­i­ties is on track to open its doors in early 2018, with con­struc­tion of the main cir­cuit and pits to be largely com­pleted by Jan­uary, closely fol­lowed by a 4x4 track, ho­tel and small sta­dium track for drift­ing and other events.

In the fu­ture, a kart­ing cir­cuit, drag strip and airstrip are also planned for com­ple­tion with the en­tire fa­cil­ity re­ported to cost $100m to de­velop with state and fed­eral gov­ern­ments tip­ping in $7m.

The main cir­cuit is set to be the long­est in Aus­tralia at 7.7km in to­tal length, how­ever, a 4.9km cir­cuit is un­der con­sid­er­a­tion for a Su­per­cars round in 2018 as well as sev­eral lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional race se­ries.

Lo­cated an hour east of Ade­laide, Tailem’s pri­mary fo­cus will be track days, with a golf club-style mem­ber­ship sys­tem in place to al­low use of the fa­cil­i­ties.

Con­struc­tion is well pro­gressed for SA’s ex­cit­ing new mo­tor­sport fa­cil­ity
