SORRY, SOME DATA ARE NOT TRANSLATED YET
Description Street circuit built in 1985 and used without any change for Australia GP up to 1995 (included). This map show a chicane with a layout different than usual, but after having checked some videos dated 1992 this seems me the right one. Then the circuit was abandoned for some years, then a new short layout (not shown on my map) was opened: it uses Bartels Road rather than Rundle Road.

Adelaide
Description At the end of 1983 a F.1 GP at Adelaide was proposed. It should have been raced in 1986, during 150th city anniversary. It should have been a 4400 m track, with 10 corners (8 right angle corners) and a 1.6 km - 1 mi straight, broken in the middle by a chicane. Jacques Laffite, who was there for F.Pacific Australia GP, saw the proposal and he unofficially approved it. I have no more info, but I think it’s a longer version of the same circuit used in 1985-1995.

Adelaide
Description F.1 promoting committee, guided by Bill O’Gorman, was present at Dijon during 1984 France GP (May 20th) in order to go on being into touch for organizing a F.1 GP at Adelaide. According to latest news, circuit should be 4540 m long and it should have a 900 m straight, a hairpin, two chicanes, some 90° corners both left and right, two 180° ’S’ and a large oblique bend just before main straight. Likely the first GP should be on March or April 1986, combined with Japan GP, another new GP under discussion in that period.
