Coates Hire Newcastle 500
Date 24 – 26 November 2017
Newcastle hosts its very first Supercars Championship event with the season finale Coates Hire Newcastle 500. And with five drivers still in the running for the championship, we could have a truly epic down-to-the-wire title decider.
The tight and undulating 2.6km street circuit with its range of corner types and elevation changes is set to serve up plenty of challenges as drivers tackle the track for the first time. The Supercars will run through the eastern end of the central business district up the steep hill on Watt Street, followed by a hard left turn, twisting turns along Shortland Esplanade, Newcastle and Nobby’s beaches and a high speed corner and tight hairpin at Newcastle Harbour.
