The $300 million BNE Auto Mall development is located next to the International Terminal and will be delivered in three major stages between 2021 and 2022. Once complete, the BNE Auto Mall will be Australia’s only automotive precinct that will operate with next to no noise restrictions. 

The development will cover 51.3 hectares and will bring together in one place automotive dealerships, 2.3-kilometre Mark Skaife designed performance track, wet/dry skid pan, 4WD track, brand exclusive and multi-use experience centres, exhibition and conference facilities, commercial offices, dining, and hotel.

Anchoring the development is the  world-class 2.3-kilometre performance track  envisaged to serve a range of purposes such as manufacturer launch events, media driving events, driver training, vehicle engineering and development, corporate events and general test driving.

Features of the track, designed by motor racing champ Mark Skaife in partnership with  iEDM, include a skid pan, manoeuvring course, dedicated slalom area, 4WD demo course, kick platek, and low-friction handling circuit.

“The test track will be located within the development of an automotive precinct and offers a safe environment for driver training, education programs, car club activities and most significantly for the Brands that will occupy these facilities, access to a circuit direct from the showroom,” iEDM said.

“Having the ability to test drive a new vehicle around a performance track is such a unique concept and will be an asset to any dealership at Auto Mall,” said Head of Property Development at BNE Property, George Delibaltas.

“This will be the benchmark in Australia for a safe test drive experience and will truly cater for a first drive P-plater through to a CAMS licence holder in a Ferrari or Porsche.”
