The Calder Park Raceway is a motor racing circuit, situated in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The circuit was opened on 14th January 1962. It is owned by Rodney Jane and operated by Australian Motorsport Club Limited. The Calder Park Raceway consists of the thunderdome, a dragstrip and a road circuit with multiple configurations. The construction was started turning a dirt track into a paddock by a group of motoring enthusiasts. They wanted to race their FJ Holdens. In 1984, the circuit was known as the Melbourne International Raceway. Following that year, it was named as Keilor International Raceway.
