Built in the early 60’s, Sandown's Motor Circuit has long stood as the premium car racing circuit in Melbourne. Names such as Fangio, Moss, Brabham, Brock, Skaife and Richards all having competing round the fast and famous circuit.
Now the official 'Heritage Round' of the V8 Supercar Championship, the circuit is currently half way through a significant safety upgrade.
Sandown is one of the very few permanent circuits left anywhere in the world, located right in the middle of a metropolitan city. Due to its close proximity to local residents, Sandown is restricted to running five major Motorsport weekends. Currently these include a V8 Supercars Sandown 500 event (mid September), Historic Sandown (early November), State Race Series rounds (May & July), and Shannons Nationals (Sept).

Diwali is certainly the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It's the festival of lights that's marked by four days of celebration, which literally illumines the country with its brilliance, and dazzles all with its joy. Each of the four days in the festival of Diwali is separated by a different tradition, but what remains true and constant is the celebration of life, its enjoyment and goodness.
