Students on Track
The Supercars Students on Track program is a great opportunity for teachers and students to spend a day trackside at a local Virgin Australia Supercars Championship race event to learn about one of Australia’s top sports up close.
The Students on Track program at the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 event is currently at capacity and registrations have now closed.
2019 registrations open soon.
The Students on Track program includes free access to the circuit and Supercars paddock on the Friday of a race weekend where students can witness the action of the team garages.
Unlike any other sport, students will be close enough to watch the drivers, engineers and team owners run through their paces and get the cars ready for racing. Then…..there’s the thrills of the watching the Supercars practice sessions, the support category sessions and the on and off-track entertainment.
But… it’s not just a day at the races! Supercars provide student workbooks, matched to the school curriculum, which show how classroom learnings translate to life on the race track to really get the most out of the excursion. The workbooks are created specifically for primary and secondary schools to ensure Supercars is catering to all levels of education. Then, there is the chance to participate in the Junior Press conference where students can pretend to be budding journalists and interview a number of the top drivers about any aspect of their driving lives.
Don’t miss the chance for your school to look under the bonnet of one of Australia’s favourite and longest running sports. Best of all, this high octane lesson is absolutely FREE!*
