Fast Cars Theatre Show

Supercars presents Fast Cars by Kate Smith

The sold-out smash-hit of 2023 returns in 2024 as part of Superfest.

The stage play Fast Cars is a comedic, tongue-in-cheek celebration of all of it. An outrageous romp about having a go and backing the wrong horse. It’s about big dreams and broken hearts, dodgy deals and desperate Divas.

Hopefully you will recognise, laugh and love the heroes and villains; rev heads and politicians, the lovers and dreamers who, just like us, want nothing more than to belong to their own ‘winning’ team. 

This show lives and breathes ‘Bathurst’ with all the quirks, complexities and characters of the city.

Fast Cars will get your engines revving and hearts racing. This show promises to give you one helluva of bang for yer buck.

Get yer backside trackside and book now!
