We've got some exciting news to share Supercars fans! Our program just got that much better with some awesome new additions:

On Friday, 18th June gates will open at 9.30am with practice sessions for Supercars, Stadium Super Trucks, and Superbikes now open to the public! The practice day is added value for three-day Hot Pass or Friday General Admission Nitro Up North ticket holders, who can use the ticket they already have to attend.

Another exciting addition to the program is the Improved Productions, HQ Holdens and Commodore Cup categories. They will race on Saturday and Sunday, and take part in Friday’s practice rounds.

But the excitement doesn’t end there! @mattmingay is bringing his acclaimed Hotwheels Stuntz Team to Darwin for the event after a hiatus last year. The jaw-dropping crew carries out seemingly impossible feats on two and four wheels, and will perform on Saturday and Sunday.
