Supercars fans can rest easy knowing they won't miss out on all that is the Watpac Townsville 400! A media release from Supercars.com on Monday 26 June spread the word that Virgin Australia, the official airline of Supercars, has added EXTRA flights from Australian major capital cities to Townsville. Make sure your interstate mates are ready to go and get their flights and accommodation booked ASAP.
Locals who don't want to make the trek home could book an Air BnB in the surrounding area as some local residents who prefer the quiet of a campfire and a good book to the Supercars head out of town and lease their homes out for the Supercars weekend.

Chooky was lucky enough to chat to driver Shane van Gisbergen who said it's "a busy couple of weeks... it's awesome and getting to do stuff like this is pretty darn cool". We think so too Shane! Check out the burnout's Shane ripped out on the Townsville Airport tarmac on our Facebook page here.
