Calder Park Raceway
Calder Park Raceway was founded in the farming community of Diggers Rest and began as a dirt track carved into a paddock by a group of motoring enthusiasts who wanted somewhere to race their FJ Holdens.
The Australian Motor Sports Club hosted their first meeting on a bitumen track on January 14, 1962. The track design back then was very similar to the existing Club Circuit, which is still in use today.
National Circuit: Length 2.280 km / 1.417 miles
The National Circuit is 2.28km in length and also incorporates the shorter Club Circuit which is 1.609 km. There is plenty of seating on the North and East sides of the circuit giving spectators an excellent view of the whole track. The circuit is available for hire for a variety of events including Club circuit days, drifting, testing and large public events.
