THE TRACK

Winding its way around the Sydney Olympic Park complex that hosted the 2000 Olympic Games, the Sydney venue is a real mixture of corners and track surfaces. Its designers, including the five time series champion Mark Skaife, have focused on creating a real challenge for the drivers, with a variety of bumps, camber changes and fast and slow corners making it difficult to complete the perfect lap.
