The Australian Racing Drivers’ Club (ARDC) has announced a one-off, celebratory ticket price to mark the return of the V8 Supercars to Sydney Motorsport Park on August 25 and 26.

To be known as the Sydney Motorsport Park 360, it offers tremendous value for fans and kicks off a week of major celebrations for the ARDC’s 60th anniversary, with the eighth running of the Australian Muscle Car Masters on the following weekend. The Sydney Motorsport Park 360 will offer a sensational, action-packed weekend of motor sport entertainment, with a single $60 pass providing general admission access – including paddock pass – for the entire weekend.

A grandstand upgrade is available for $35 and special limited on-site parking for $15.

Free parking will also be provided at the adjacent Sydney Dragway, with a shuttle bus delivering spectators to the main gate. In line with all V8 Supercar events, kids under 12 receive free admission with a paying adult. This means that a family of four with two children under 12 will be able to enjoy the two-day race meeting for only $120.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on July 9 via ticketek.com.au.

Spectators will be treated to a huge weekend of racing across two packed days, headlined by a 140km race for the V8 Supercars on Saturday and a 220km race on Sunday, with practice and qualifying both days.

While there will be plenty of V8 Supercar action, four support categories will also run across the weekend, including Aussie Racing Cars, Formula Vee, Production Sports and Improved Production/Production Touring.

This means that there will be 25 sessions of on-track action, including 14 races, across the weekend. Each support category will race once on Saturday and twice on Sunday, with much of their practice held on Friday.

ARDC CEO Glenn Matthews says that the return of the V8 Supercars in the ARDC’s 60th year was a time for celebration of Australian Motorsport, and that ticket prices for the Sydney Motorsport Park 360 reflected this celebratory mood.

“These prices come as the ARDC marks its 60th anniversary, and we are making a one-off gesture to the motor sport-loving public of Sydney to celebrate the return of the V8s and kick off a massive week of motor sport in Sydney, with the eighth Muscle Car Masters to be held the following weekend,” said Mr Matthews.

“We are very excited about the return of the V8 Supercars to Sydney Motorsport Park, and we want to share that excitement with the people of Sydney.

“We think that the amount of racing on offer, including 360km of V8 Supercar racing and four support categories, plus the fantastic ticket prices make for an unbeatable weekend of sporting entertainment. “We’re very much looking forward to it, and we hope the fans are too.”
