SUPERCARS will build an additional grandstand for November’s event, the company confirmed in announcing another musical act for the November race.
Chief executive James Warburton confirmed the plans on Monday, the same day officials are expected to door-knock in the East End after releasing noise audit data.
The new grandstand, outside the Camp Shortland hairpin turn, is slated to add another 323 seats and will have views to a big-screen TV.
“Support for this event has been extraordinary and is on track to become the biggest event in Newcastle’s history and possibly the biggest in regional NSW outside of our Bathurst race,” Mr Warburton said.
“With the circuit really taking shape and the civil works coming to an end we expect interest in tickets to only increase as the race draws closer.”
The grandstand announcement came as Supercars confirmed The Veronicas had been added to the music bill performing at the race.
The Brisbane twins will play Friday alongside Delta Goodrem, Supercars confirmed on Monday, before Spiderbait and Cold Chisel perform on the Saturday evening.
A third act for the Saturday evening is yet to be announced.
