More Information

Supercars newest race was a huge hit in 2017. Don’t miss a second as it comes back in 2018!

Newcastle’s inaugural 2017 Newcastle 500 was a huge hit with an amazing crowd attendance of over 190,000 fans for the 3-day event, a figure that’s on par with Bathurst’s 4-day attendance! Newcastle is 2 hours north of Sydney and is a laid-back coastal town where the foreshore area is turned into a Supercars festival with plenty to see and do for all. The coastal location is a calming back-drop to the bumpy and winding street circuit where the racing was thrilling as eventual winner Holden’s Jamie Whincup duelled Ford’s Scott McLaughlin to claim his seventh championship during the second 250km race. While accommodation is scarce in Newcastle, we have a fantastic option nearby at the Mercure Charlestown, a quality hotel not far from Newcastle which offers a relaxing atmosphere just outside town. Other options available on request. Our Official Travel Packages include accommodation, buffet breakfast and daily transfers from the hotel to Newcastle, so you can sit-back, relax and take it all in.

We look forward to welcoming you to Newcastle in 2018 for what will be another huge finale of the Supercars Championship!
