Symmons Plains International Raceway opened in 1960 and after the closure of the Longford road circuit, quickly established its own reputation as Tasmania's home of touring car and championship motor racing.
From 1969, the very first year that the Australian Touring Car Championship was held over a series of rounds, until 1999, Symmons Plains hosted a round of the Championship, and while the cars and drivers in that championship changed, the importance of the event never diminished.
The 2.4km track requires the competitor to have a vehicle that is both fast, handles well and has good brakes as the track is designed to test all three.
The track is known for several interesting features including its very long back straight with a kink, its extremely tight hairpin bend at the end of the front straight and the unusual placement of the original start/finish line, on a curve.
