04 - 06 July · From $998 View the brochure
The Sucrogen Townsville 500 takes place annually on the first weekend of July, at the Townsville Street Circuit. The street circuit is a temporary circuit that winds through Reid Park and the center or Townsville. Paul Dumbrell commented on the circuit saying “it is a high grip circuit” while Mark Winterbottom described the first corner as a clone to turn eight in the Adelaide Street Circuit. Which he usually takes at a high speed, as it’s a great passing opportunity. The circuit is 2.85km long, and the final race sees drivers complete two 70 lap races on the Saturday and Sunday.
The Townsville 400 in 2013 was a fantastic race, Garth Tander broke his two year winning drought in Race 2, to stop Jamie Wincup from defending his 2012 title. The racing was superb and the whole weekend was a huge success.
+ there’s always great rock concerts and extra entertainment for adults and kids. A truly well-rounded weekend of racing.
We can get you to the Sucrogen Townsville 500 in 2014 with our great value Travel Package that you can customize to your exact needs.
Don’t miss the excitement and adrenalin pumping V8 Action!
