Concerts, track schedule revealed for Townsville 500

THE off-track entertainment at Supercars’ NTI Townsville 500 this year will be spearheaded by Ministry of Sound.

The July 7-9 event will mark a maiden appearance in the north Queensland city for the dance music brand’s Classical show, with conductor Vanessa Perica at the helm of an orchestra accompanied by live vocals.

Also featuring in the concert line-up will be Groove Terminator, an Australian DJ.

“This ground-breaking partnership between Supercars and Ministry of Sound underscores our commitment to providing a world-class experience for fans of all ages as part of our annual visit to north Queensland,” declared Supercars CEO Shane Howard.

“From the inaugural Gen3 races to the iconic Ministry of Sound show, this year’s event promises to be one of the biggest in our 14-year history in Townsville.

“We hope to see fans from around Australia take advantage of North Queensland’s warm winter weather and join us for this year’s event in July.”

Townsville Mayor Jenny Hill added: “Council has worked closely with Supercars for many years to secure the high-octane event for Townsville, and I’m excited to see the showstopping event back in the city this winter.

“As a Council we are focused on growing Townsville into a sustainable destination that embraces the arts and sports.

“Ministry of Sound headlining the NTI Townsville 500 is the perfect intersection of culture and I can’t wait to get amongst the action next month.”

In terms of on-track action, the Repco Supercars Championship will be supported by a four-pronged undercard of the Dunlop Series, Porsche Carrera Cup Australia, Toyota Gazoo Racing Australia 86 Series and the Aussie Racing Cars Super Series.
