Tourism Minister Kim Hames announced the deal last week. He said the Government hoped to increase the value of WA tourism to $12 billion by 2020 and events such as the V8 Supercars played an integral part in achieving that goal.

�Not only do events attract visitors, they also help to support local businesses, boost the economy, add vibrancy to a destination and help raise the profile of the State,� Dr Hames said.
