Red CentreNATS revs up Alice tourism
Alice Springs tourism has received a rev up thanks to this year's Red CentreNATS, which attracted a record number of visitors.

The fifth annual Red CentreNATS saw 861 entries from across Australia and 16,468 attendances.

Held from 30 August to 1 September, the event showcased over $80 million worth of cars and featured entertainment across three venues; Blatherskite Park, Alice Springs Inland Dragway and Lasseters Hotel Casino.

New for 2019, the Heavy Hitter drag racing feature category saw 20 of Australia’s fastest drag cars battle it out to win more than $10,000 in prize money.

Other highlights included the Burnout Masters, trophy karts competitions, a packed show’n’shine, grass driving challenges, dyno battles, elite show cars pavilions, and a 4WD course.

Thousands of people turned out for the street parade which saw hundreds of modified and custom vehicles cruise through the heart of Alice Springs.

The Red CentreNATS Grand Champion, Burnout Masters Champion and an array of other awards were announced at the ever-popular Podium Party which this year featured DJ Hot Dub Time Machine.

Dates were also released for next year's event, with the spectacle to be staged from 4-6 September 2020.
