Townsville’s Reid Park Street Circuit will come alive on Friday with Supercars returning for the NTI Townsville 500 9-11 July.

This year’s NTI Townsville 500 will feature three days of on-track action including two 250km Repco Supercars Championship races on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

This weekend’s event will be “King of the North” Jamie Whincup’s final event as a Championship driver in Townsville and he wants to farewell local fans in style. Whincup has amassed 12 race victories in Townsville, more than any other driver in history.

For the first time there will be a Saturday night extravaganza to thrill fans of all ages with displays by some of Australia’s most-powerful drag cars along with the popular Hot Wheels Stunt Team, headed up by the legendary Matt Mingay and performances by the high-flying Airtime FMX Team.

Off track, Aussie rock star and Grinspoon front man Phil Jamieson will perform on the Saturday night, after The Money Shots, the winner of a brand-new Battle of the Bands competition takes to the stage to rock the track precinct at the Saturday Night Thrills concert, that will end in a fireworks display.

The event will also feature some of Supercars’ biggest support categories; the Dunlop Super2 Series, Toyota Gazoo Racing Australia 86 Series, Porsche Carrera Cup and the fan-favourite Stadium Super Trucks.

Construction of circuit is nearing completion for North Queensland’s largest annual sporting event, and the NTI Townsville 500 going ahead as planned.

Supercars’ NTI Townsville 500 Event Manager Sam Pearce said:

“We’re thrilled to be here and ready to roll out one of our favourite events on the calendar this weekend,” Pearce said.
