Continuing on from some of our other not so ultimate guides, this week we bring you the Not So Ultimate Guide to the 2022 Bunnings Trade Perth Supernight. The return of Supercars to Perth after a two year hiatus!
The number one thing you must know is that there will be NO ATMs. Bring cash with you or go cashless which is preferred.
WHEN AND WHERE
Honestly if we have to tell you WHERE, maybe you need to return to the rock you’ve been living under. But we’ll indulge you. Wanneroo Raceway is located on Wattle Avenue East in Neerabup, Western Australia approximately 50km north of Perth.
We highly suggest taking advantage of the free public transport on offer from Transperth and park AWAY from the track.
If you MUST park at the track, then Gate 3 on Wattle Avenue will be your point of entry, Gate 4 is a public drop off point, also on Wattle Avenue.
There is a secondary Car Park located in Peak Road, off Mather Drive and access directly from the Freeway via Neerabup Road/Flynn Drive. A shuttle bus will run from The Mather Drive Car Park to Gate 35.
A continuous shuttle will operate between Mather Drive Car Park and Wanneroo Raceway and return.
Did we mention the free public transport?

UPDATE: Track officials have advised that Supercars have confirmed that check-in and proof of vaccination are no longer required..
There will be track action from Friday 29th until Sunday 1st May. However no public access is being granted on Friday 29th so do not rock up as you will be a bit disappointed when you are turned around.
Patrons may bring in limited quantities of food and drink for personal consumption. No alcohol or glass is permitted to be brought into the precinct.
NOT GOING? HOW TO WATCH ON TV
Foxtel and Kayo Sports have the live broadcast rights in Australia and you will need to have a subscription to them for the weekend.
Channel 7 will be showing a highlights package at the end of each day.
For details on where/when/how to watch, check out supercars.com’s TV Schedule.
There will be four support categories at the 2022 Bunnings Trade Perth Supernight including Dunlop Super2 Series, V8 SuperUtes, Radical Cup Australia and Historic Touring Cars.
The Supercars will be on track for the first time on Saturday morning at approximately 10:20 am for their first practice.
Supercars will be running three 46 lap races with Race 1 (or Race 10 if you look at it from the championship point of view) will be held on Saturday with an expected starting time of 6:40pm.
The other two races will be Sunday at 12:05pm and 15:45pm.
Drivers will be appearing at the back of their garage for about half an hour from 4.30pm on Saturday. Get in line early if you want to meet your favourite driver and get a signed poster. Please be respectful of everyone as we know this time gets a bit pushy at most events as everyone wants to see their drivers.
