SkyCity Triple Crown V8 Supercars
Come June the Australian V8 Supercar Championship heads to Australia’s most northerly racetrack, Hidden Valley in Darwin for the SkyCity Triple Crown V8 Supercar race.
This 3 day carnival event running in mid June pitches itself as more than just about what happens on the track, the off-track entertainment aims to live up to the same level excitement with international acts.
Hidden Valley raceway lies just 10kms from central Darwin and offers one of Australia’s picturesque and yet fastest race circuits. With a 2.9km track, 14 corners and 1km long straight stretch the SkyCity Triple Crown has produced some of the fastest racing across the championship.
Off the track there’s plenty to keep the kids occupied with the Disney Fun Zone and stunt demonstrations to entertain both old and young alike. After race concerts take central stage on both the Saturday and Sunday nights. On Saturday night as Aussie Hip Hop royalty Hilltop Hoods take to the stage supported by Illy. Whilst Sunday night with RACE & ROCK is a dress-up party to take you travelling through time with Aussie legend Russell Morris and Hot Dub Time Machine.
Gates open 7am each day and 5am on Sunday.
Darwin in June is the perfect escape for those travelling up from the southern Australian winter weather. The dry season offers humid free days and warm temperatures making for ideal conditions for both racing and touring the top end.
If you’re looking for accommodation for the SkyCity Triple Crown Supercars race then one consideration may be a campervan.
