The motorplex is 3 metres lower at the 402 metre mark. Is that normal? Does Calder Park do this too? Should get good times going downhill.

Motorplex

For all info visit www.motorplex.com.au tells you costs to enter your car and equipment you need.

As for being downhill you are right, but the strip is within all the guidlines. Tthis is why we had the jet cars out here last year trying to crack a record and a top door slammer setting a new record there last time they meet (dunno how they went last weekend tho).

reason for the downhil motion of the track at the end is to increase you qtr time, but at the same time it also helps you pull up at the end, notice how it dips down, and then starts to incline. You will slow down a lot quicker on an incline than you will on a flat surface.

Note i ran my Fairmont there, crossed the line at 150kph, and i had a nice time trying to pull up (i had shit brakes at that point) i crapped me pants (you have to slow down slowly, you cant plant ya foot at 150)...
