With the Adelaide 500 heralding the 2020 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship it’s worth noting Western Australia’s premier motorsport event – the Pirtek Perth SuperNight – is back May 15-17.

They’re Back!

And those jumping Stadium Super Trucks return to Wanneroo Raceway along with SuperUtes and the thrills, and spills, of the Australian Superbikes.

Train and Bus the best option

I’ve been fortunate to be invited by the WA Sporting Car Club to this stellar event in the past few years. And I’ve found by far the easiest way to get to Wanneroo and back home is the train-bus route. Just get to your local station, enjoy your train ride, and step aboard the buses waiting for you. Heading home is just as easy.

And the TransPerth staff are a pleasure. The journey is both stress-free and cost-free (it’s included in your ticket).


The night racing is simply spectacular and, if you’ve not experienced it before, the action under lights is very special.

The 2020 schedule looks as exciting as anything in recent times.

RAAF Hawk 127 lead-in fighter

As in previous years, the RAAF display by the Hawk jet – invariably at the start of the Supercars race on Sunday – is a sight not to be missed. It warms the cockles of my heart. Every single time!

I’ll let you know more about that wondrous spectacle as soon as its confirmed.

It’s worth knowing the RAAF jet flyover, from nearby Pearce Air Base, was first set up way back in my days at the Raceway by my wonderful PA, Jennifer Harrison. Jen now is doing a super job as ANDRA’s business development manager, based in the US!
