CrownBet Darwin Supercars kicks off this June

Darwin’s adrenaline-filled event of the year is back!

V8 fans, start your engines!

One of the top highlights on the V8 Supercars schedule, the Crownbet Darwin Triple Crown, is gearing up for 2018. The exciting weekend-long event is set to kick off on June 15-17 and V8 fans from all over Australia are heading to Darwin to witness the fast cars and Crown V8 action.

It’s been 21 years since the first Australian V8 Supercars event in Darwin and locals and tourists alike continue to gather every year to celebrate the popular Hidden Valley Raceway events.

Last year saw fan-favourite, Scott McLaughlin take out the win at Hidden Valley Raceway, with Jamie Whincup finishing close behind. Despite his strong finish, the young Kiwi narrowly missed out on the 2017 Championship title to Whincup.

Currently ranking strong as number one, Mclaughlin is back Hidden Valley to battle it out for the top spot. Going head-to-head with Shane Van Gisbergen and David Reynold’s, this year’s Crown Darwin Supercars race will sure be one to watch.

Aussie rock favourites to join the Rock & Race lineup

Popular Aussie rock band Jet are set to headline the Hidden Valley Raceway events at Rock & Race.

Bringing the action from the track and onto the stage for Saturday and Sunday, this two-day event will see the likes of The Rubens, Thundamentals, and Bliss n Eso rocking out for the best post-race party in town.

It’s not all music and fast cars. Throughout the day, the Hidden Valley Raceway will transform to a full festival experience, with some of Darwin’s tastiest food trucks and bars, as well as exciting merch and activities for the whole family.
