The popular Supercars Transporter Convoy is set to go ahead on Thursday, 13 August. Every year the Convoy helps build the excitement for race day at Hidden Valley, and the BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown will follow the Convoy on 15-16 August.
Originally planned for 6 August, the Transporter Convoy had to be postponed when there were delays with the teams arriving in the Northern Territory.
The Convoy route will be as originally planned, departing Hidden Valley at 6.30pm, turning left on the Stuart Highway towards the CBD, then onto Daly Street, Mitchell Street, Knuckey Street and McMinn Street, before heading on to Garramilla Boulevard and taking Tiger Brennan Drive back to Hidden Valley.
In line with the event’s COVID Safety Plan, the Convoy will not stop in the CBD this year, but will form a continuous procession of everything Supercars. People are requested to spread out along the route rather than gather in the CBD.
Tickets to this year’s BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown start from as little as $35. Children aged 13 and under go free. Buy your ticket online in advance for express, contactless entry on the day. Visit www.darwinsupercars.com.au
Quotes from NT Major Events Chief Executive Officer Tim Watsford:
“The Supercars Transporter Convoy is a fantastic spectacle that sets the scene for all the action on the track. For it to go ahead after the disappointment of having to put it on hold is great news.
“The teams are keen to get back to the track, and this is just the start of it! We can’t wait to see the transporters rolling through town.
“In line with physical distancing guidelines, we urge spectators to spread out to watch the procession, rather than gather in large groups. We have plenty of space up here, so no one will miss out.”
