This is the curcuit used for the Australian Road Racing Championships in 2007 and 2008. The 10.2 km circuit goes through picturesque and historic Buninyong, up the highway and then turns toward Mt Buninyong itself. This is the real lung-buster part of the course! On around to Yankee Flat Rd and left into Gear Avenue toward the University of Ballarat, then down through the winding Fisken Avenue to Geelong Rd and back down to the township of Buninyong. This course will test your stamina on the hill climbs and your ability to descend at speed.
But remember to be cautious as the circuit is not marshalled except when gazetted races are conducted. -Watch out for cars and other road hazards.
In the Australian Championships, Women compete over 10 laps (102 km), Men U/23 12 laps (122.4 km) and Open Men 16 laps (163.2 km).
