Never raced at the Bend but been to Mallala a LOT.
Great and under rated track. Very technical. Has history
The “Facilities” ... how those “grandstands” have not been condemned is beyond me. The most hardened rigger would give it the “fark that” if you asked them to climb up ... And yet we do.
And the pits. Yes they are. Tin sheds that you wouldn’t think about putting your lawn mower in.
My local Karting track has more modern scutineering sheds.
The dummy grid is a challenge as any car with serious lock stops won’t make the left hand turn to enter the track
Shelter and shade - that’s for (insert preferred designation as I’m not game to just in case I try to run for PM and someone checks these posts out and I have to abort the run for Canberra)
And because of all that, it’s one of my favourite ever tracks.
