FIVE large tem­po­rary grand­stands are be­ing erected near the pit build­ing and an­other 16 grand­stand struc­tures will be erected around the track in com­ing weeks.

Dun­lop Townsville 400 event man­ager Kim Faith­full said it was ex­cit­ing to see the first signs of tem­po­rary in­fra­struc­ture be­ing put in place for the event at the Reid Park track.

“Al­though the ma­jor construction works are draw­ing closer to com­ple­tion, the whole precinct will con­tinue to be a hive of ac­tiv­ity al­most ev­ery day for the next seven weeks lead­ing into the event on July 10-12,” Mr Faith­full said.

“Peo­ple will soon start to see other tem­po­rary event in­fra­struc­ture be­ing in­stalled, in­clud­ing the cor­po­rate hos­pi­tal­ity suites, con­crete bar­ri­ers and site offices.”

Grand­stand tick­ets for the event are still up for grabs in the gold and sil­ver stands and there are plenty of gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets avail­able.

“Driv­ing past the precinct you can see the huge view­ing mounds which are for spec­ta­tors with a gen­eral ad­mis­sion ticket to get op­ti­mum views of the on-track action,” he said.

“The spec­ta­tor view­ing lo­ca­tions at this track are among the best at any race track in Aus­tralia.”

A pur­pose-built con­cert stage also will be erected at the track for the con­cert on the Satur­day night fea­tur­ing ARIA award-winning Eskimo Joe and su­per hot dance act The Pot­belleez.

The con­cert is free for any­one who holds a Satur­day ticket.

Grand­stand and gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets are avail­able through tick­etek. com or by phon­ing 132 849. >> Visit www.v8­su­per­carevents. com.au to find out more de­tails about the Dun­lop Townsville 400.
