The Bend Announces Bumper 2024 Major Events Calendar

The Shell V-Power Motorsport Park has finalised its 2024 major events calendar, headlined by 3 rounds of the National Drag Racing Championship, the Australian Superbike Grand Finale and a refreshed Bend Classic.  

The major events compliment over 300 days of on-track activity at The Bend in 2024 with the Driver Experience Program set to expand in participation once again alongside visits from manufacturers such as Audi, Porsche, Ferrari, Toyota, Maserati and Mitsubishi throughout the year.

For the second consecutive year, international promoter Top Speed will return for a round of Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia on June 7-9, this time joined at the long weekend event by the reborn Australian Formula 4 Championship.  

The Dragway at The Bend calendar features 3 rounds of the National Drag Racing Championship with Nitro Funny Cars headlining the January 13-14 Festival State Nationals, while Top Fuel will head up the River Bend Nationals on 5-7 April and the Spring Nationals on 18-20 October. Additionally, The Dragway is set to host over 80 days of activity across the year made up of Off-Street Meetings, Track Championships, Test ‘N’ Tunes, Jamboree and more.    

The venue has expanded its annual Event Pass to include the major events at its new Dragway, offering fantastic value for race fans and eventgoers. The final day to order The 2024 Event Pass to arrive in time for Christmas is Tuesday, December 12.

Alistair MacDonald, CEO - Shell V-Power Motorsport Park

“2024 will mark our biggest year by far with the Dragway at The Bend set for its first full year of operation, alongside another full calendar on the Main Motor Racing Circuit.”

“We look forward to continuing to be a destination circuit providing a world-class experience for local, interstate and international visitors in 2024.”
