Action packed weekend on and off track in Surfers
The Lexmark Indy 300 on Queensland’s Gold Coast is unrivalled in its ability to provide a total entertainment experience and officials are now busily putting together the off-track events program, to fully complement the on track action that gets under way from October 18-21.
In a little over three months the entire Gold Coast region will be in party mode during the feature event festival and the opportunity exists now for local business and event promoters to become a part of the high vibe excitement of the Lexmark Indy 300.
The basic criteria set down to become an official off-track event is based on how each event is able to supplement this World class motor racing spectacular, in the lead up to and during the four day-four night spectacular.
“The Lexmark Indy 300 is the number one party destination in Australia during October as we welcome more than 300,000 people to our annual Surfers Paradise street circuit motor racing feature,” said Lexmark Indy 300 Marketing Manager Greg Price.
“Traditionally we have incorporated a power-packed program of off-track events and are always on the look out to introduce many new and exciting initiatives into the entertainment mix.
“It’s all about providing complementary events to Queensland’s number one entertainment spectacle with an emphasis on fun and the greater promotion of the Gold Coast region during the Lexmark Indy 300 period.”
There are numerous mainstays of the Lexmark Indy 300 off-track event program including various luncheons, the glitz and glamour of the Bartercard Miss Indy, plus the traditional Thursday morning Champ Car Driver’s breakfast at Conrad Jupiters.
Surfers Paradise Management CEO Liliana Montague said the precinct would again host an array of off-track entertainment to extend the excitement beyond the track boundaries.
“The off-track program is an important part of the atmosphere and excitement that attracts international sporting teams, corporate groups and tourists each year,” said Montague
“Surfers Paradise features on the world stage during the Lexmark Indy 300 and it’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase what this destination can offer.
“The highlight of the program is the street parade, which was created specifically for the Lexmark Indy 300 and continues to grow in its appeal and stature with new entertainers and costumes added each year.
“We are wholehearted supporters of the off-track program and encourage others to participate and provide an enhanced experience for our visitors as well as our residents,” she said.
