Sandown International Raceway
The fast and flowing circuit laid around a horse racing track is a permanent fixture in the city. Racing the Sandown circuit is about having good power for the long runs up and down the two long straights.
The fast ‘esses’ section at the end of the back straight leading into Dandenong Road Corner is one of the best sequences of corners in the Championship.

Sandown has hosted more ATCC/V8 Supercars Championship events than any other circuit – 43. The first was held in 1965 and was a single 40-lap race won by Norm Beechey in a Ford Mustang. He lapped the entire field.
