June 2019 Supercar Championships Triple Crown To Darwin
Darwin is the most northern capital city of Australia, being situated in the Northern Territory on the Timor Sea. The city is built upon a low bluff overlooking the harbour. Known locally as the "Top End", Darwin has a tropical climate, a wet and dry season with temperatures and humidity remaining high considering the comparison between it and the southern states. During the wet season from November to early December, the weather brings heavy monsoonal downpours and spectacular lightning displays.
Each year in August, Darwin hosts a round of the Supercar Championships at the Hidden Valley Raceway and thousands flock to be part of the week-long festivities. 2019 will be the twenty-second year of the Darwin Supercars and to kick off the fun, the Transporter Night Convoy will be held on the Wednesday night, where visitors and locals alike can see the 2019 Darwin Triple Crown procession make its way to the City from Hidden Valley. There will also be night markets, children's activities and great music as you witness the Supercars roll into town. The route taken and more information on the night can be sourced here.
