Author: Garry Morrow

Posted:

The Barrabool motocross circuit, just outside of Geelong in Victoria, has undergone a major upgrade in preparation for the Yamaha Oceania Motocross Championship which will take place on the weekend of November 12-13. In keeping with a trend of a lot of landmark circuits of different disciplines Barrabool will now have many new features that have been named in an effort to give the circuit its own personality. The circuit will now have section names such as Horsepower Hill, Skyline straight and The Big Dipper. A couple of new features will include the Elevator Triple and the Sahara sand strip, the sand strip is a result of the track being dug to a depth 4 meters and filled with beach sand. Old favorites will be back, including the spectacular Fly Over tunnel. Lap times are expected to be just over two minutes. For fans the big news is that there will be plenty of in-field access, this will allow spectators to get up close and personal on many parts of the layout.
