What is there to do at Red CentreNATS?

You’ll never be bored during Red CentreNATS, with enough petrol-induced action to keep you entertained for hours. Both the burnouts and drag racing take place at Alice Springs Inland Dragway, while Blatherskite Park is home to the show ’n’ shine and the grass and off-road driving events. The biggest drawcard though is the street cruising, with special permits available for cars not normally allowed on the road, so they can hit the streets with no worries all weekend. It’s the only place in Australia you’ll see a 1500hp, blown methanol burnout car legally driving on the street!

Who can enter Red CentreNATS?

Anyone can be a spectator, but if you want to enter a car in the event, you can’t just show up in a rental. Red CentreNATS is a top-level modified car event, and as such, all entrants’ cars are assessed to ensure they have more than just aftermarket hubcaps. Cars 30 years or older in original condition are also allowed to enter, and your car does not need to be road-registered to take part, with special permits offered for heavily modified cars to drive on the streets of Alice for the event’s duration.
