The $12 million, six-day course, named Racehouse, is scheduled to open on Wednesday and will feature a full circuit, an indoor track and an outdoor track.
It is the first of its kind in the country and has the support of the Hobart City Council.
“The track has been developed in partnership with Racehouse,” Mayor Andrew Hill said.
“This will allow us to have the most modern, high-tech track in the world.”
Racehouse will give Hobart the best in racing technology, and we will have the world’s fastest road cars.
“Hobart is set to host the first race of the year on Friday, June 28.
Hobart is the only Australian city to have hosted a Formula One race.
A spokesman for Racehouse said the city had been working with Hobart since last year and was pleased to see the track now open.”
We are very excited about this first-ever track in Australia, which will provide an incredible experience for drivers, spectators and the community,” he said.
Hobstons Racehouse has been designed by the Australian Institute of Race Engineers.
It will be open to the public for two days and will be the second-highest speed track in Hobarty.
The track will also feature an indoor and outdoor track that will be accessible to spectators.”
I think it’s great to see Hobart coming to the racecourse, it’s really exciting and we’re really excited to see how it all works out,” Hobart racecourse manager Matt Gage said.
The Hobart council said the track would have a total of about 5,000 spectators, with an average of about 6,000 people attending the opening races.”
