Where to live stream the Townsville 400 V8 Supercars in Australia
The highly-anticipated motor racing event held on the Townsville Street Circuit will take place this July and fans can watch live on TV or stream the action with their favourite devices.
Staged over a three-day weekend, the Townsville 400 V8 Supercars race is the eighth race in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. The streets of Townsville will roar to life with the smell of high octane fuel this July, as fans are gearing up for another amazing weekend of intense racing.
Competition is always fierce at the Townsville 400, with critical Championship points on offer. Reminiscent of the Albert Park street circuit in Melbourne, the Townsville circuit quickly became a driver favourite ever since the inaugural race in 2009.
