Sandown International Raceway is a motor racing circuit in Melbourne, Victoria, approximately 25 km south east of the city.
When Sandown first opened in 1962 it held the Sandown International Cup, which featured world-famous drivers such as Stirling Moss and Bruce McLaren. Throughout the 1960s and 70s the race meetings continued to attract international stars along with the best of Australia's drivers.
Australia's traditional Holden/Ford rivalry really surfaced at the track in the late 1960s and through the 1970s until Peter Brock won seven meetings in a row, out of a total of nine.
1984 saw the introduction of Group A rules and an extension of the track to 3.9 km. It also saw the first 500 km race, named the Castrol 500. In 1989 the track reverted back to 3.1 km.
Apart from a break between 1999 and 2002, Sandown has been an important circuit in the V8 Supercar Championship Series.
