Volunteering

The 2022 Merlin Darwin Triple Crown looks set to be another amazing year as we celebrate 25 years of Supercars in Darwin.

We are also excited to welcome you to the new volunteer registration system.

The new platform will make registering as a volunteer a more concise, secure and user-friendly experience.

If you have any questions regarding the event or the new system, please don't hesitate to contact us at volunteers.ntmec@nt.gov.au
