Sucrogen Townsville 400 – July 2012
North Queensland’s biggest sporting event is back with the V8 Supercars Sucrogen Townsville 400 July 6-8 2012. See the V8 Supercar heroes as they fight for this prized podium position. This signature track will also host the Dunlop Series, Carerra Cup, Formula Ford and Aussie Racing Cars.
The street circuit race offers three days of entertainment on and off the track. The 2012 Disney Pixars CARS truck tour returns and this year Mack the transporter is joined by his famous friend Lightening McQueen!
Located just south of the Townsville CBD, the circuit winds its way through Reid Park where specially constructed roads form approximately 70 percent of the circuit. Set in a parkland style reminiscent of the Albert Park street circuit in Melbourne, the Townsville circuit proved to be a challenge in its inaugural year in 2009 and quickly became a favourite of the drivers.
