2018 is set to be a massive year of firsts for The Bend Motorsport Park. Off the back of the first event in January, the Revolve24 endurance cycling event, the team is now preparing for launch in April with two major motorsport events and a third in August.
On the 13th of April, the Shannons Nationals will come to The Bend, marking the first motor racing to take place at the circuit. The Shannons Nationals features a range of racing categories including the Australia GT Endurance Championship who will battle it out on The Bend’s 7.77km GT Circuit (the second longest permanent circuit in the world). We can’t wait!
The following weekend (starting on the 19th of April) the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) and the Asia Road Racing Championship (ARRC) will take their two wheel machines to The Bend as the first motorcycles to race there. This also marks the first time that ASBK has raced in South Australia since 2009 and the first time that ARRC has ever visited Australia.
And finally, in August the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship will make its way to The Bend for the first time. Racing on The Bend’s 4.95km International Circuit it will be a spectacle not to be missed!
Tickets for these events are now available here
Among these major events The Bend will play host to track days, members days, the Sporting Car Club State Championships, Improved Production Nationals, the Rotax National Karting Championship plus many more club level events.
The Bend Membership is also now available. Launched in late 2017 The Bend Membership provides members with track time, event access and premium access to the facilities including the members lounge. More information about membership can be found here.
Preparations for the launch of the exclusive first stage of the trackside villas and premium garages are nearing completion.
Currently being built are 5 displays with the team finalising our roads, landscaping and secure entrances and expect these to be completed by April 2018
The trackside villas will stand unique on a global platform and provide a destination for those who love motorsport and want to indulge in a secure and private community development with immediate access to the main racing circuit.
In preparation for this year’s proceedings, construction of The Bend is now in its final stages. The track’s full length is now sealed with asphalt which looks spectacular and the pit building is currently having the interior fitted out.
We're very much looking forward to seeing you out here in 2018!
