SYDNEY MOTORSPORT PARK
EASTERN CREEK
Description Circuit inaugurated in Autumn 1990. From 1991 to 1997 it hosted motorbike world championship Australian GP, and it should have hosted also 1990 edition. My map is updated at the end of 1989, when the circuit was still under construction: the only difference with final layout is the lack of short circuit and southern loop.
