SUPERCARS fans will have the chance to meet the Newcastle 500 drivers before they take to the track.
All 26 championship racers will be signing autographs at Gregson Park in Hamilton on Thursday, followed by a drive down Beaumont Street.
The drivers will be in Gregson Park between 5.30pm and 6pm, with the cruise down Beaumont Street starting at 6pm.
Fox Sports’ Supercars Trackside show will broadcast live from Gregson Park as part of the preview event.
The free event was organised by the Newcastle council in conjunction with the Hamilton Business Chamber and Supercars.
Chamber president Nathan Errington said the event was a “massive win for the chamber and for Hamilton”.
“The business chamber is bringing the activation outside the city to make sure the suburbs get a bit of Supercars action as well,’’ he said.
“It’s an exciting opportunity for Hamilton.
“You’ll see some food vendors there, face painting for kids.”
