Construction has begun on the The Armor All Gold Coast 600 on the famous Gold Coast street circuit. The first overhead bridge crossing the Gold Coast Highway has been installed and proudly displays the catch phrase ‘Get the party started’ to Gold Coast travelers as the countdown to the October 22-24 event continues.
The Armor All Gold Coast 600, in a continuance of V8 Supercar’s highly successful Rock N Race format, will see the Gold Coast treated to non-stop entertainment over the three days and nights of October 22-24 and give the city the opportunity to let down its hair across three days of racing and three nights of world class entertainment.
Each day will see 18 international stars paired with the 29 home-grown heroes of the V8 Supercar Series taking to the concrete jungle of the Gold Coast street circuit, with the skills of these drivers – some of the best in the world – to truly be put to the test by the Aussie V8 Supercar machines and their unique style.
When the checkered flag has flown at the end of each day, 600 Sounds presented by Hard Rock will fire up each night at the Broadwater Parklands entertainment precinct, bringing together a wide range of musical acts across a whole range of genres.
Drivers will include former Formula One World Champion Jacques Villeneuve, three time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves, North America’s most successful road course racer and 1997 Gold Coast winner Scott Pruett and Indy 500 winner, Gold coast winner and reigning IndyCar champion Dario Franchitti just to mention a few.
Those guys will be lined up against our V8 Supercar heroes and then followed by music from acts like the Beach Boys, Baby Animals, Ian Carey, Empire of the Sun, Sneaky Sound System and the Potbelleez. If you are going to party once this year this is the event to do it!
The Armor All Gold Coast 600 will take place on the streets of the Gold Coast from Friday October 22 to Sunday October 24, with less than 32 days now remaining until Queensland’s premier motorsport event comes to life.
