Multi-million dollar parade of transporters returns to Townsville
Repco Supercars Championship
On Wednesday July 6 the streets of Townsville will once again transform into a parade of tooting and waving as Supercars arrives in town.
The multi-million-dollar procession of Supercar transporters returns to Townsville to mark the official start to this year’s NTI Townsville 500.
Supercars teams' massive B-Double transporters will begin the journey from Webb Drive at the Bohle, taking a right turn down Ingham road, then Shaw Road, along the Ring Road, before starting the fanfare along Hervey Range Road, Ross River Road and Charters Towers Road, finishing at Reid Park.
Walkinshaw Andretti United driver Nick Percat is set to lead the procession in the NTI 1946 Jailbar dual cab ute.
Spectators are encouraged to congregate safely along Hervey Range Road, Ross River Road and Charters Towers Road; keeping in mind parking is not permitted along Shaw Road/The Ring Road.
The Supercars team will also be on patrol handing out flags and perhaps a few spot-prizes to a few lucky spectators.
