New deal to retain V8s event at Barbagallo Raceway

THE V8 Supercars will remain at Barbagallo Raceway for at least another three years, with the State Government securing a new deal.

Tourism Minister Kim Hames announced it last week. Dr Hames said the Government hoped to increase the value of WA tourism to $12 billion by 2020.

He said events such as the V8 Supercars played an integral part in achieving the 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 through valuable media exposure,” he said.
