Supercar launch draws thousands

DALBY has received a first look at the new 2019 Supercar. Craig Lowndes and the team at Red Bull and Holden launched the car today at the Dalby Aerodrome in front of about 3000 people.

Mr Lowndes took the car for two spins along the air strip of the Aerodrome between 1 and 2pm, much to the excitement of the enormous crowd. Mr Lowndes also spent time with the crowd, taking photos and signing autographs.

Mayor Paul McVeigh was also present for the event, and said that events like these are what bring the community together.

"Having a legend like Craig Lowndes here is great for our community,” Mr McVeigh said.

"It's about lifting the spirits of our community. Some of our times have been tough and when you get the opportunity to be able to do something that people enjoy, where you can have a laugh and enjoy the show, that's what's good for our community.”

The car will be raced competitively for the first time in Adelaide this March.
