    it's a while since I checked (more than a year) but easy to take a tape measure, some chalk, and mark it out.
    happy to donate some chalk :D

    you can sort of see the markings here, in the third parking bay thing Google Maps
    it is not as long as the range at Unanderra RMS, but long enough to get up to speed for the braking test.

    edit: if you want to mark it out yourself, here are the dimensions of the Unanderra MOST test area (from google satellite images :) ) (green circle is ZZR250 turning circle = 5.6m diameter)

  11. Welcome another gong rider. I'm from Shellharbour region might see u out and about :)
