ROCKINGHAM – RD 9: 18/3/17

Rockingham Riders Guide

The Aluminia Circuit in East Rockingham is a new edition for the 2017/2018 Ring Summer Criterium Series. Like the previous Rockingham course riders know and loved in Smeaton Way the circuit is an open course with wide sweeping corners, similar to the Gnangara circuit.

All up the 1.9 km’s has little undulation, with a perfectly fast hot-mix surface which will see some scorching times set.

The long 300 meter finishing straight provides ample spectator points for the thrilling final kick for racers and they vie for the top step on the podium.
