    The grading doesn’t just account for safety, it includes facilities and such too. I wonder if the location and road infrastructure plays a part too.

    Some place like Spa, up in the mountains. It has run off, but it's a woodland area. I guess with Phillip Island being where it is and as you mentioned about facilities, but I haven't hung around the towns on the way to the circuit.

    I wish you all the very best in getting F5000 properly revived.

    In 1973, I was privileged to witness an F5000 race at my home circuit, Pacific Raceways (which was then one of the most dangerous circuits on the continent if not the whole world) in which 33 drivers started, including no fewer than 14 past, present or future F1 runners, and several Aussies including Graham McRae, Frank Matich, Johnnie Walker and Max Stewart.

    Jody Scheckter fought spectacularly with Mark Donohue and David Hobbs for the win, but Brian Redman won a memorable race.
