Supercars Australia delivers the annual Supercars Championship series at a range of venues around Australia. In partnership with Destination NSW and City of Newcastle, the Newcastle 500 is one event scheduled in the national series.
Destination NSW, City of Newcastle and Supercars Australia have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (available on the Newcastle 500 Documents page), setting out each entity's distinct responsibilities for funding, administering, presenting, and authorising the race in Newcastle in accordance with relevant local, state and federal planning controls and legislation.
The flagship event was rescheduled from the final event of the season to the first race of the 2022 season, following a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19. The five-year agreement to host the Newcastle 500 concludes with the 2022 event. You can read about Council decisions and announcements regarding the race on the Event Information page.
