Supercars Australia is sweetening the deal for Newcastle residents with a special discounted ticket price to go on sale this Saturday.
KOFM will be broadcasting live from a Community Fun Day marking the launch of the first Coates Hire Newcastle 500, at which residents will be able to grab the first tickets to the race.
Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Cessnock, Singleton Muswellbrook and Port Stephens residents with proof of address will also be able to access exclusive savings on trackside tickets with the first choice of grandstand tickets. An adult 3 day trackside ticket will be discounted by 20% on Saturday, costing $96.
Supercars Chief Executive James Warburton says the event will allow residents to secure the best seats in the house.
“This event will give Newcastle residents the exclusive opportunity to purchase tickets before they go on sale to general public so we are expecting a big turnout at Foreshore Park.”
Plenty of Supercars stars will also be in attendance including defending champion Shane van Gisbergen, with the event to run from 10am to 2pm.
We've got the full list of discounts available below.
Visitors hoping to secure a ticket will have to wait though, with tickets available to the general public on May 8.
The race will be held from November 24 to 26.
