Brisbane Is Copping A Race Track For The Public Where The Speed Limit Is 240km/h

Brisbane Is Copping A Race Track For The Public Where The Speed Limit Is 240km/h

Australia is home to some absolutely beautiful race tracks, some of which are open to the public.

If you're a fan of the Bathurst 1000, you're able to drive your car onto the track any day of the year (obviously not during the competition) and pretend you're going to win it for Holden or Ford.

But Queensland will soon have a race track that will rival all others.

Mount Panorama in Bathurst has a 60km/h speed limit for regular folk, however the track planned for Brisbane's BNE Automall project will have a maximum limit of 240km/h - that's faster than some planes during takeoff.

Imagine buying a brand new car (or rocking up in your old one) and testing just how hard that engine can go.

According to the Courier Mail, it's been designed by supercar champion Mark Skaife; and if there's anyone who will know what people will want it's Skaifey.

A spokesperson for the Brisbane Airport Corporation has told the newspaper: "Brisbane Airport's BNE Property division is currently running an expression of interest campaign to procure a track operator.

"The track has been designed and simulated to a maximum vehicle speed of 240 km/h. Track usage will be coordinated by the appointed track operator."

But it won't just be a place to rev your engine; it will also reportedly have a 4WD track and wet/dry skid pads as well.

So you could actually imitate all those four-wheel-drive ads that show the car tackling some tough terrain.

Details about the cost or the rules at the park are scant at the moment, but people can expect it to open some time in 2021 - which, granted, is a while away but it just gives you plenty of time to work out which car you want to take out first.
