Stadium trucks return to V8 bill

The high-flying stadium trucks will return to the V8 Supercars support bill for the Gold Coast 600 later this year.

The Robby Gordon-run stadium trucks made a sensational V8 Supercars debut at this year’s season-opening Clipsal 500, and will now return for the final of the three endurance cup events on the Gold Coast.

Gordon, who raced six times on the Gold Coast during his open-wheeler days, says he is excited about heading back to Surfers Paradise.

“I have so many amazing memories of the Gold Coast event,” he said.

“It is one of the very best street tracks in the world and the way the Gold Coast turns it on is incredible.

“We found in March of this year at the Clipsal 500 that the Australian motorsports fans are amazing and love to see the stadium trucks fly through the air and beat and bang only the way they can.

“To be able to bring our trucks to Queensland’s biggest party is going to be a huge highlight for our series. The SSTs on that track will be absolutely spectacular and we can’t wait to get back to Australia in October.”

V8 Supercars CEO James Warburton added that the stadium trucks are a perfect fit for the Gold Coast event.

“The stadium trucks have to be seen to be believed,” he said.

“Their show in Adelaide had people on their feet. It is fantastic they have been able to come back to Australia and the Castrol Gold Coast 600 in October.

“As Queensland’s largest annual sporting event, delivering over $40m of economic stimulus and showcasing the Gold Coast to 206 million viewers worldwide, the Castrol Gold Coast 600 will also be a chance for Gold Coasters to indulge in some celebrity spotting.”
