Tour Description

The Bend Racetrack Development

Come and see the new world-class facilities.

Cost: $94

Have you seen the amazing new development just east of Tailem Bend? What was once the Mitsubishi Motors proving ground is now SA’s newest motorsport complex.

After Mitsubishi ceased manufacturing in Adelaide the Peregrine Corporation bought the land and have created an amazing new, world-class complex for all kinds of motorsport. The Bend is unique in having all motorsport disciplines ‘through the one gate’. There are facilities for cars, motorcycles, go-karts, rallycross, driver training facilities, a 4WD adventure park, a rally/off-road facility and a drag strip under construction.

It’s served by a central Welcome Centre, a 100-room hotel located in the pit building, a caravan and camping tourist park,with an airstrip for light aircraft and helipads to come.

We visit the Welcome Centre and SkyDeck, and have lunch in the onsite restaurant. Unfortunately our coaches aren’t quite quick enough to mix it with the racecars, though there are views of the track area available. This will be a fascinating trip to see the work here, funded by SA’s largest private company.
