The 10 day countdown to this year’s biggest party on the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship calendar, the Vodafone Gold Coast 600 has begun.

Just two days after making his debut as a Championship driver at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, Gold Coast-based rookie Jack Le Brocq marked the start of the countdown by getting up close with Jesse, a Wedge-tailed Eagle from the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

As the biggest annual sporting event held in Queensland, thousands of fans will head to the coast next week from right around Australia, many stopping in to popular tourist spots ahead of three days of heart-racing action on the streets of Surfers Paradise.

Le Brocq is the leading rookie after the first 13 rounds of the Championship, and alongside his Bathurst-2inning co-driver Jono Webb, will be end this year’s Pirtek Enduro Cup campaign on a high, when Supercars hit the streets of Surfers Paradise next week.

Supercars Legend Craig Lowndes leads the Pirtek Enduro Cup standings heading into next week’s event following his emotional seventh Bathurst 1000 victory on Sunday at Mount Panorama.

The Gold Coast 600 is the 14th round on the 2018 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, with international powerhouse rock acts FOREIGNER and +LIVE+, alongside Brisbane’s ARIA-award winners, SHEPPARD set to entertain guests at this year’s Broadwater Sounds presented by Gold FM race concert. 

The 2018 Vodafone Gold Coast 600 is proudly supported by the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland as part of the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar. Queensland is just the place to experience Australia’s best live events.

The Vodafone Gold Coast 600 will run from 19-21 October on the streets of Surfers Paradise, tickets available through Ticketek.
