Race Track Facts

Barbagallo Raceway is a 2.4km circuit and features 7 corners.

The Track

Barbagallo Raceway is the only full-length Championship Racetrack in Western Australia with long straights, thrilling undulations and challenging cornering.

The circuit hosts numerous events each year but their biggest is the Perth Superprint, a round of the Supercars Championship which is now one of biggest sporting events in WA and since the course’s track surface upgrade in 2004, from the old abrasive surface to the new smooth and grippy surface (which caused all lap records to be broken in the same year), its now the best its ever been.

Note: Do not take Wattle Ave from Wanneroo Road as it is a dead end.
