Changes to Darwin Supercars Program for 2020

Northern Territory Major Events Company

The BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown will now take place on 15-16 August. Originally scheduled for 8-9 August, the race weekend has been rescheduled due to changes around COVID-19 hotspots.

None of the Supercars crews were in Queensland hotspots when they came into play at midnight on 31 July. It has since been confirmed a limited number of crew members had been in those locations in the 14 days prior to that.

As a result, those crew members will now enter mandatory quarantine upon their arrival in the Territory. As an added precaution, Supercars crews have been undergoing regular COVID-19 testing for some weeks, with no positive results returned. They will continue to undergo testing once they arrive in the Territory.

Due to the schedule change, the CoreStaff Darwin SuperSprint, planned for 15-16 August, will now take place at a later date, to be confirmed.

The schedule changes have been made in consultation with the relevant authorities, and help protect the wellbeing of our community while providing exciting Supercars action for fans.

Anyone with a General Admission ticket for the 8-9 August can change their ticket to the 15-16 August event. Anyone who can no longer attend can request a refund via Ticketek. If you purchased a Monster Platform or SKY DECK ticket we will be in touch.

As previously confirmed, the Transporter Convoy planned for 6 August can no longer go ahead due to delays with the Transporters arriving.

We thank you for your patience and look forward to seeing you at the track.
