Settle down selfie

V8 Super cars lined up in the pitlane

Send yourself and a mate to the Castrol Gold Coast 600

This month we’re giving away an incredible money-can’t-buy experience at the Castrol Gold Coast 600. By entering you could win a 3-day double pass to the event, plus weekend Beach Club VIP Hospitality Suite passes, starting grid walk passes and an exclusive Hot Lap in the Official Course Car driven by professional V8 supercar driver Nick Percat.

We want to celebrate our beloved vehicles and show that it’s ok to love your car, as long as you drive safely when you’re behind the wheel. Entering is simple, just pull off your most ridiculous stallion pose with your faithful ride and upload your photo to Instagram with #SettleDownStallion.

*Likes and/or Instagram stardom not guaranteed.

Important Stuff (you should read this)

  1. You and your mate must be Queensland residents aged 18 years or older! Please note: moustaches are not an acceptable form of ID.
  2. Make sure your Instagram is public! If you don’t, we can’t see your entry and you’ll be stuck watching the V8s at home with your Gran.
  3. No illegal stuff in your photo! We fully support Queenslanders loving their cars, but only within the confines of the law.
  4. You must be available for the Hot Lap on October 21st 2016! This is a condition of entry, so if you can’t make it you won’t get any of the other awesome prizes. So make sure to check your diary before you enter to avoid any disappointment.
  5. You’ll be asked to sign some release forms on the day for liability and video rights. If you can’t appear in video for any reasons including: you’re a secret agent, you’re in a witness protection program, or your boss will see you pulled a sickie to go to the V8s, unfortunately this competition isn’t for you.
