Three of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship’s leading drivers will be trading a race track for a running track ahead of the Townsville 400, July 7 – 9th.
Red Bull Holden Racing Team’s Jamie Whincup and Shane Van Gisbergen, and Triple Eight stablemate Craig Lowndes of TeamVortex will be joined by local fans and fitness enthusiasts as they pound the pavement on Thursday morning to get the blood pumping ahead of a massive weekend of high octane racing.
Jamie Whincup is the driver with the most wins in Townsville, but will his performance be the same away from the drivers seat?
In 2016 Shane Van Gisbergen clained his first ever Townsville race win, so maybe he'll be the hungriest to claim a win on Castle Hill too?
The action will step out from 8:45am- so keep an eye out for the celebs and locals joining them on the run!
