Supercars CEO Sean Seamer said while the Vodafone Gold Coast 600 is an iconic sporting event, it also offers incredible entertainment.
“The variety of entertainment on offer is unrivalled and offers plenty for the motorsport fan, the music fan or those who simply want to come along and join the party. It is set to be a great weekend all-round,” he said.
Gold Coast Acting Mayor Donna Gates said the Vodafone Gold Coast 600 was a must-see event for the City.
“Supercars going full throttle through our street circuit is unique,” she said.
“I know the drivers rate this weekend as one of their best events on the annual circuit. Organisers have done a remarkable job transforming the GC600 from a pure motor racing event to a weekend of family entertainment, exceptional live music and off-track excitement.”
The Vodafone Gold Coast 600 is on from 19-21 October, with the Broadwater Sounds concert to take place on October 20. For more information, visit: supercars.com/
