We invite a group of current Supercar drivers, as well as drivers from other series, to join us on stage to offer you a fascinating insight into the world of motorsport from their eyes.

When the shows over, you’ll have countless opportunities to grab some unbeatable selfies and autographs from the array or leading motorsport figures that join the event. To add some extra fun to the evening, we always have a great batch of prizes ready! You’ll also have a chance to hang out with some of the girls from the grid and gain some unique analysis for the upcoming race. It’s the ultimate way to launch the weekend!

At the Hoedown, you’ll be shaking your boots to live music from Australia’s leading bush band as well as have further chances to meet more supercar drivers as they make appearances throughout the night. This is the only public after-party in town, and the best way to give the race weekend an almighty and unforgettable farewell for the year.
