Bumper-to-bumper program announced for Red Centre NATS

Posted: 17 April 2015

The official program for the 2015 Red CentreNATS has been released featuring bumper-to-bumper automotive action.

Excitement is building around the inaugural Red CentreNATS from 3 -6 September with a great program to keep local and visiting rev heads entertained.

There’s something in the program to whet the appetite of every car enthusiast including precision driving, street cruising, show n’ shine, judged competitions and an official Burnout Masters Qualifier.

The Red CentreNATS is proudly presented by the Northern Territory Government in association with the team from Australia's favourite horsepower party - the Summernats.

Red CentreNATS has caught the imagination of motoring enthusiasts around the country with 130 registrations already received, five months out from the event. About half of these registrations are from interstate.

One of Australia’s most loved rock bands, Chocolate Starfish, will perform a one-off concert at the event paying homage to Meatloaf’s ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ album.

Local authorities have been set up in 63 regional and remote communities across the Territory, to:

  • provide greater opportunity for community members to have more control over delivery of services
  • find local solutions to local issues
  • participate in decision making that impacts their community. 

The eight large Shire Councils in regional and remote Northern Territory are now called Regional Councils, and are focused on addressing local concerns.
