Get ready for heart-stopping race action as the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 speeds off. This year, the Supercar drivers will be facing a challenging circuit. It will go through the eastern end of the Newcastle Central Business District (CBD). Through here, they can enjoy the natural scenery Newcastle has to offer, but they can’t slow down too much or risk coming in the last place.

Some of the places the race will pass include Shortland Esplanade, Newcastle and Nobby’s beaches, as well as Newcastle harbour, with a race length of 2.6km. 

During the race, choose to stay where you think the best action will be. Another option is to follow the racers as they go. Start the race at the starting line, and go to the finish line so you can be the first to see the winners.

Other than the three-day race itself, fans can come and enjoy the grandstands; pit lane walks as well as concerts, perfect for everyone to enjoy, an event that promises to be bigger than last year’s event.

With that said, don’t forget to grab your tickets as early as now to secure your place. Another reason to grab your tickets as early as now is that prices will skyrocket as the event draws nearer.

Finally, don’t forget to get in touch with a reliable car hire service in the Newcastle area to book a car so you can drive yourself to the venue and back. Doing this now not only will save you money but will guarantee you the vehicle of your choice. 

Go to the race and have a grand time with your loved ones. Enjoy a few pints, cheer, and scream your heart out as you witness history unfold at the Newcastle 500.
