Calder Park
Description Track under construction near Melbourne. It should have hosted a future Australian F.1 GP, maybe in November 1984. According to my magazin, direction should be anticlockwise, but pit lane suggests me it should be clockwise, as I drawn in my map. According to Atlas F.1 - The Nostalgia Forum thread, it should be a proposal not developed for Calder, before Thunderdome was built.
