“As far as a permanent circuit goes, this has got to be number one, this is our best circuit by a long shot. Just the quality of it, it’s an F1-style circuit.”
"The Bend is the best thing to have happened to motorsport in Australia in decades."
"It's incredibly challenging," Tander said. "Easily the hardest circuit I've ever had to learn."
“Very impressed at the fantastic facility. It’s good to see a circuit like that is so open and fast flowing and the undulation is just incredible.”

“I have driven many, many circuits around the world. Having extensively tested the Brabham BT62 at The Bend, I can tell you this circuit is right up there with the best race tracks in the world.”
“It was really great to ride on a new track and I can certainly give it the tick of approval. Riding on this circuit was quite a treat. I’ve been to a number a few different tracks around the world and this one stacks up against some of the best. It’s got a touch of everything and I enjoyed it a lot!”
Yesterday I drove our GT3RS on the International (5km) and the GT (7.7km) tracks on the brand new Shahin family-owned track 'The Bend’.
Until now my 2 favourite racetracks were Bathurst and Spa (F1 track in Belgium). I have raced on every Oz track (except Newcastle) and also driven/visited many ‘famous’ tracks US, UK, Europe & Asia. The Bend with elevation changes, 34 turns all different & challenging is now in my opinion easily THE BEST TRACK IN THE WORLD! Big call but after 23 years of racing, I’m making the call!!
"The Bend Motorsport Park is definitely a fantastic facility. It’s definitely on par with some of the best circuits around the world that I have raced on. The circuit is without a doubt an international standard, that’s for sure."
"The circuit is simply amazing, it feels a little surreal knowing a world-class venue is at our doorstep! It’s a long and technical lap but it’s a bucket load of fun."
“What a truly unbelievable experience. I am absolutely blown away by The Bend Motorsport Park. First impressions of the facility are world class, I feel very privileged to have this circuit in SA being a proud South Australian myself."
"I think the circuit is fantastic, the facility here and what they’ve built is world class. It’s very challenging, there’s lots of blind corners which you arrive at across crests."
