- INFO: also known as Adelaide International or AIR is a permanent circuit owned by Australian Motorsport Club Limited under the auspices of the Bob Jane Corporation. The circuit is located 26 km (16 mi) north of Adelaide in South Australia on Port Wakefield Road at Virginia, and is adjacent to Adelaide's premier car racing Dirt track racing venue, Speedway City. AIR is owned by the Bob Jane Corporation and run by the Australian Motorsport Club Ltd. The oval course and road circuits, while still very much in existence, have now ceased to hold any form of aces. Instead it is drag racing and drifting now the order of the day. Like most Australian circuits at its time of construction, AIR raced and still races clockwise, though the Super Bowl, with speedway meetings and NASCAR races in the 1990s, is the only part of the circuit to run state or national championship races anti-clockwise.

Other INFOs
AIR was built by Surfers Paradise businessman Keith Williams in 1972. Williams also owned the Mallala Race Circuit and Surfers Paradise International Raceway. Williams owned the track, which remained in an almost 'raw state' until purchased in 1982 by the Bob Jane Corporation.

- GP -
From 1972 to 1988 the Adelaide International Raceway was South Australia's major motor racing circuit, due to a covenant placed on Mallala preventing any motor sport activities there (the covenant had been done away with by 1982). AIR regularly hosted rounds of the Australian Touring Car Championship and endurance races of the Australian Manufacturers' Championship. With six of the full circuits nine turns being right handers, those being turn 1, which was also the hardest braking point of the track after the fastest cars such as Formula 5000's regularly reached speeds of over 270 km/h (170 mph) on the long straight (by 1988 the turbocharged Ford Sierra RS500 touring cars run by Dick Johnson Racing were reaching 258 km/h (160 mph)), and the sweeping turns 2 and 3, plus the high speed bowl section, gave Adelaide International a reputation for being hard on tyres, specifically the outside (left hand) tyres which generally took a hammering through the long turn 1, 2 & 3 right hand sweeper and also on the turn 9 bowl. This was due to the longer periods of high speed cornering with the cars and suspensions loaded to the outside.

- OVAL -
In the early 1970s, and following the American NASCAR influence which at the time was drawing record crowds, paved short track speedway was becoming popular in Australiaand with the Speedway Super Bowl, Adelaide a ready made track. The Super Bowl was a ½ mile (805m) track and supremely fast with room on the almost 200m long straights for cars to reach higher speeds, while the Super Bowl's longer than 200m turns are banked slightly at approximately 7°, making cornering faster, with the exception of turn 1 for running clockwise on the Bowl which is generally flat - necessary due to the front straight also being the drag strip, the main straight of the road course and the usual exit of pit lane. The turns of the bowl being banked made turn 7 of the full circuit (turn 5 on the short course) slightly off-camber as cars entered the Bowl.

- DRAG -
With its 920 m (1,010 yd) long front straight, it was always intended that Adelaide International Raceway would host top level drag racing

- Other Infos
The Scots name of the road is the "Lang Whang", a whang in the Scots tongue being a narrow strip of leather, usually a long leather bootlace. Much of the road is over elevated, desolate moorland; it ascends several times on its course to heights over 1000 feet above sea level. Because the wind enjoys an easy and uninterrupted passage over its length, in winter the road is frequently closed by snow, even by modest snowfalls. The road passes elevated farmland and grouse moor and presents extensive views over central Scotland to the north.

More INFO (by http://www.rallycross-photo.com)
Abreschviller is located in the north eastern tip of France in the Lorraine department. Abreschviller governs a rather land large area, but almost 90% is forested mountains. The nature can be best discovered in the old steam train that starts from the town. This train takes a 12km tour into forests and the valley of the Sarre Rouge River.
The Hillclimb travels in the southwest direction towards Saint Quirin. This town is easily recognized by the 11th Century Haute-Chappelle. This small church is build on a hilltop above the town center. The same concept can also be seen some 15 kilometres to the northeast of Abreschviller. Here at Dabo at the end of the 19th Century a Chapel was build at the highest point (664m). From the top you will get a panoramic view of the Vosges Mountains. From a large distance it looks like the base of the Chapel is bizarrely oversized. But on closer inspection it turns out the chapel is build on an exposed Sandstone Rock Formation. Contrary to the southern and central Vosges Mountains, the Northern Vosges are covered by a sandstone layer. This sandstone erodes faster than the Granite and Gneiss of the southern Vosges, exposing oddly shaped rock formations and large cliffs. Around Dabo quite a few can be discovered. Although saying the Northern Vosges is technically not correct as they start some 30km further north of Abreschviller at Saverne and are protected in a nature reserve.
Abreschviller lies halfway between Nancy in the west and Strasbourg in the east, both 85 kilometres by car.

Other INFOs
Aintree is well known as the venue for the world famous Grand National. But it also has a long and proud history as a motor sport venue. The 3-mile track, opened in 1954 by Earl Howe and Raymond Mays, remains Britain’s only purpose-built Grand Prix circuit and it still exists in its entirety. Aintree staged the British Grand Prix in 1955, 1957, 1959, 1961 and 1962. Stirling Moss scored his first World Championship Grand Prix victory in the 1955 event at Aintree. This also marked the first occasion on which a British driver had won his home Grand Prix. The first British driver / British car victory in a British Grand Prix was at Aintree in 1957 when Moss and Tony Brooks shared a Vanwall in an event which was also honoured with the title “Grand Prix d’Europe”. Aintree also staged a further eleven non-Championship Aintree “200” Formula One events.
