Ultimate Supercars Experience up for grabs for local businesses

Date published: 23 June 2018

Townsville City Council is giving away the Ultimate Supercars Experience to the best dressed business ahead of the race weekend.

The Best Dressed Business competition is being held to celebrate the tenth anniversary of racing at the Reid Park circuit.

The prize includes three-day Trackside passes including Paddock access and Grid Walk Experiences for four people, valued at over $2,500.

The winner will walk among the incredible Supercars and watch the teams make their final preparations.

Townsville Mayor Jenny Hill, Townsville Bulletin Editor Jenna Cairney and Townsville Chamber of Commerce President Debbie Rains will select the winning business.

Mayor Jenny Hill said the competition was a great opportunity for local businesses to show their support for the biggest event in North Queensland.

“The Supercars weekend boosts the local economy and brings in visitors from across the country to the premier sporting and events destination in North Queensland,” Cr Hill said.

“We’re hoping all Townsville businesses get revved up for the tenth anniversary race and deck out their shopfronts.”

Cr Hill said free packs were being distributed by Council to kick-start the race weekend celebrations.

“Council has packs available including bunting, posters, flags and balloons, but businesses are encouraged to add their own touches to really make an impact,” Cr Hill said.

“For your chance to win, simply dress your business, take some photos and complete the online entry form on Council’s website.”

The prize also includes concert access, with performances by iconic Australian musicians John Farnham, Daryl Braithwaite, Hoodoo Gurus and The Baby Animals.

Local businesses have until 2 July to deck out their shopfronts for the chance to win.
