The one-of-a-kind motorcade for the Ostojic Chariots of Thunder Sprintcar Series is introducing a new route, roaring through the heart of the Darwin CBD and Esplanade. The revised route brings a welcomed change up to the loved activation, one unseen in many other parts of the nation. 

“There’s nothing quite like the Motorcade, as soon as those engines are fired up you see people rushing out of office buildings and restaurants to get a glimpse” said Vice President, Jacalin Ekins. 

With this excited expansion we see the Motorcade grow from 200m to nearly 2km of action through the CBD, Darwin Esplanade and Parliament House. This year the Motorcade will be held on Thursday, 17th of August as the unofficial welcoming ceremony for two weekends of Territory Tough Racing. Spectators are encouraged to line the full route from 12.00pm for a 12.10pm start.
