Join us to watch the Supercars at the Coates Hire Newcastle 500

Come and visit us at the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 Supercars race from Friday 22nd November to Sunday 24th November 2019 to see the new Cat GC range, buy Cat merchandise and win prizes.


For the third year in a row, the Virgin Australian Supercars Championship is coming to the beachside city of Newcastle. The Coates Hire Newcastle 500 takes place from Friday 22nd November to Sunday 24th November and includes a once-in-a-lifetime rock and roll concert experience on the Saturday night as KISS take the stage as part of their final Australian tour.

In 2019, our team will be there in force with the new ‘WesTrac Hub’; a giant yellow shipping container filled with TVs, Cat merchandise, relaxing furniture and a rooftop viewing area that’ll give you a bird’s eye view of the racing action happening down on the Nobbys Beach hairpin corner. The WesTrac Hub will be an oasis in the heat and the perfect place to chill out, discover the new Cat GC range and play GC basketball to win prizes.


Get up close and personal with the new Cat GC range

Earlier this year we launched the new Cat GC range of equipment in WA, NSW and ACT. Caterpillar’s new GC models have been introduced to meet the demand of price-conscious customers in the Australian construction industry.

With the same Cat DNA and unrivalled support from WesTrac, the new Cat GC range ticks all the boxes for economical customers, without compromising on reliability and durability. Cat GC machines offer great performance, high fuel efficiency and low owning/operating costs – all at a price that will surprise you.

Cat GC Range

At the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 Supercars race in 2019, we’ll be showcasing the new GC range with a few models on display. This includes a Cat 950 GC wheel loader and a Cat 330 GC Excavator. Come and visit the WesTrac Hub to learn more about this exciting new range, snap a photo or get an instant quote from one of our sales reps.

Play GC Basketball to test your skills and win

To celebrate the launch of the Cat GC range we’re inviting you to come shoot some hoops and win prizes. In a world first, we’re attaching a basketball ring to the bucket of a Cat 950 GC wheel loader to see if you’ve got what it takes to shoot, score and win prizes.

Get one shot in from the free throw line and you’ll score yourself a water bottle. If you forfeit the water bottle and sink a second consecutive shot, you’ll take home a limited edition WesTrac basketball. If you risk it all by taking a step back to the three-point line and sink your third consecutive shot, you’ll be in the draw to win a $1,000 travel voucher from Flight Centre – so you can take your family on a trip this summer!
