GP North was the first new circuit for Sydney Motorsport Park, created via the addition of a link road between turns 4 and 15 utilising the northern half of the Grand Prix circuit.

The link road offers a unique challenge, as racers turn left from the entry to turn four, followed by a banked right-hander over a blind crest with a downhill entry into the exit of turn 14.

This link has produced a fast, flowing 2.8km layout that is serviced by the Grand Prix pit lane on the main straight.
