What I think about The Bend Circuit

Everyone with it only being just over 50 days to the V8 Supercars hit the new circuit The Bend Motorsport Park in SA I would give you my thought on it.

You can see a picture of what the track layout will be when the V8 Supercar drivers will be driving around it in just a little under two months time. It’s the first time there is going to be two Supercars events in South Australia in the same year.

the orange outline is the track they will be racing on, it is 4.95 km making it the second longest track behind Bathurst. This is going to be a hard track for the drivers as its a new track and most of them wouldn’t have driven it before. The drivers will do a walk around like they do at every track but they will be looking at the apexes on all the corners where they think the best driving line is and where the best overtaking spots are. I reckon probably one of the best overtaking spots are is the corner into a chicane after the long straight and also the corner coming onto the straight as well.

The Bend Motorsport Park are also trying to win the hosting rights to hold the Australian MotoGP round there if they can, if the Australian MotoGP were to go somewhere else I believe it will go here as it is a very new circuit and I like the GP in Melbourne but I would like to see it at a different track. If it was to host the Australian MotoGP it will give the riders and new track to race on that they haven’t before and give them a different type of race all together.

Do you think this is going to be a good circuit for the drivers and the teams and will it stay for a long time in the supercars series. Also what would be your favourite corner on the track

Until next time

  1. I don’t think they should take the the Moto GP away from Phillip Island, if anything I would love to see them host the F1 or maybe a Formula 3 race or something like that
