Students thrilled by Supercar classes

Nearly 400 students were introduced to the V8 Supercars on 16 June, ahead of two days of blistering Hidden Valley action.

The one-day interactive trackside experience, or Students on Track program, was an opportunity for schoolchildren to witness the practical applications of mathematics, physical education, tourism, marketing, event management, media studies and engineering, at the high adrenalin event.

A junior press conference was held with supercar drivers, enabling students to practice journalism and learn more about the sport.

Students on Track has been running since 2015, in partnership with the Department of Education and NT Major Events.
