Calder Park Raceway is a motor racing circuit in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The complex includes a dragstrip, a road circuit with several possible configurations, and the “Thunderdome”, a high-speed banked oval equipped to race either clockwise (for right-hand-drive cars) or counter-clockwise (for left-hand-drive cars such as NASCAR).
Calder Park Raceway was founded in the farming community of Diggers Rest and began as a dirt track carved into a paddock by a group of motoring enthusiasts who wanted somewhere to race their FJ Holdens back in the 1960’s.
In the early 70s Bob Jane purchased Calder Park and from there it became a Victorian motorsport icon with international events.
The Thunder dome at Calder Park Raceway was built at the cost of $54 million, and as Australia’s only 24 degree banked superspeedway was opened on August 3, 1987.
