The Gold Coast Motor Racing Track is created each year by closing roads on Main Beach Parade and is one of Australia’s leading and toughest motor racing events. It attracts 200,000 spectators each year.The current Gold Coast 600 event of the V8 Supercars championship continues a motor racing tradition which began on the streets of Southport in 1954 with the Australian Grand Prix. A forerunner of the current circuit was first used for the Gold Coast Indy 300 in 1991, with the current layout introduced in 2009. The 4.47 kilometre track has several fast sections and four chicanes. For a typical event seven pedestrian bridges, 2,500 concrete barriers, 11,500 grandstand seats, 140 corporate suites and 16 kilometres of fencing is installed, along with many temporary buildings and significant power and telecommunications systems.
