One of the most challenging motor racing circuits in the world gains a fittingly ambitious design in its new Pit and Spectator Facilities Building.
Collaboration, engagement To redevelop the famous home of the Bathurst 1000, AJ+C studied the world’s best racetracks and interviewed over 200 people. Speaking to drivers, re-fuellers, mechanics, sponsors, spectators, television crews and the local community, we gained a deep insight into what a world-class racing facility should be.
Complex and ambitious The development provides facilities for racing fleets, B-double transporters, 2000 corporate guests and 50,000 spectators. It also provides a hotel, medical centre, parking for 15 helicopters and sky lanes for jets and aeronautical acrobats.
The main event The Pit and Spectator Facilities Building lines the track in a bold, glazed form 400 metres long. Cantilevered high above the racetrack is the control tower, with the building’s middle level extending out over the pit apron to give a direct view of the high-octane activity below.
