Racing wheels of a very different kind will be taking on the iconic Mt Panorama circuit at Bathurst this March 7 - 9. Utilising some of the most famously hazardous sections of the Mountain circuit, Newton's Playground will accommodate competitors from Australia and overseas across a range of downhill gravity sport disciplines including Luge, Downhill Skateboarding, Gravity Bikes, In-Line Speed Skating and Freestyle Skateboard Sliding. With predictions of 125km/h+ down Conrod Straight for the Street Luge competitors, Newton's Playground promises to be a real sight to behold.
Alongside the downhill disciplines, various other on and off track sports, like Slalom Skateboarding, On & Off Road Mountain Biking, Carveboarding, BMX and Freestyle Skateboarding. 'Airsports' in the form of wingsuit flying and swooping will also be a part of the festival. Live music, DJs, an industry village, gravity related rides and a variety of food and beverage outlets will keep the punters occupied between races. Festival patrons are encouraged to embrace the great outdoors with their choice of accommodation. Sulman and Reid Parks will be dedicated campsites for the event. Tickets for Newton's Playground are now on sale via Moshtix, but are limited, so spectators are urged to book their tickets soon in order to avoid disappointment.
