Location

  • This circuit is located at Littlehampton in the heart of the picturesque Adelaide Hills, about half an hour’s drive from Adelaide City. Situated on the side of a hill, the circuit provides elevation changes, an unusual characteristic for a race track.

The facilities

  • A driver’s rostrum which can comfortably accommodate fourteen competitors and is well elevated, providing an excellent view of the circuit.
  • Unisex toilets.
  • A fully serviced canteen.
  • A lap counting shed incorporating the latest AMBrc lap counting system.
  • A very comfortable pit shelter with steel workbenches for 50 competitors, 240V power and brick-paved flooring.
  • As required, we will provide additional trestles and marquees to accommodate extra entries.
  • Parking is available on site. Adjacent to our facility is a children’s playground with seating and electric barbeques.

The Circuit

  • The track was completed in March 1985 and was 220 metres long.
  • In January 1994, the track was extended to 240 metres, a cut-through add on the pit straight and fully resurfaced.
  • In October 1997, the track was again fully hot mixed.
  • In February 2004, the circuit was extended to 300 metres, with two cut-throughs added for track variations and a full hot mix.
  • We do not lay any additives on the track surface at any time.
  • We have lawned run-off areas to minimise car damage as much as possible.
  • The track consists of a combination of some tight hairpin corners, some very fast-flowing corners and several off-camber corners. The centre “esses” are an essential part of the circuit’s character as they have a substantial elevation change and tend to throw a car offline if it is not correctly set up.
  • In 2019, the track resurfaced with a new hot mix used by some of the top ways in Australia.
