The event is titled the “Triple Crown” as it is the name of the trophy that is awarded to the driver that can achieve the remarkable feat of qualifying fastest in the Top 10 Shootout and winning both races over the weekend. So remarkable is the feat in fact, that in almost 20 years of the event being held that no driver has been able to achieve it! Aside from the fast and frenetic racing that the Hidden Valley Raceway never fails to produce, The Darwin Triple Crown is also renowned for it’s outstanding off-track entertainment – at the 2017 edition of the event, the lineup included Hilltop Hoods, Illy, Russell Morris and Hot Dub Time Machine.

    All eyes will be on Hidden Valley Raceway, Darwin as the Supercars roar in & take over the town for an action packed, ground shaking, adrenaline pumping 3 days! However, our packages are more than just a ticket to Hidden Valley Raceway and accommodation! We offer you the ultimate Darwin Triple Crown experience including the most fierce and competitive racing in any category; rock concerts with some of Australia’s best known performers; hotels in highly sought after locations and the best sunsets in Australia!
