The popular Easternats Street Machine festival is heading North. Easternats promoter Jon Davison today announced a ten year deal to move the event to Winton Motor Raceway beginning Easter 2011.

The event which had been held at Sandown Raceway since 1997 was set to move to Calder Park after issues with the local council and circuit owners The Melbourne Racing Club, but was cancelled due to regulatory issues.

Mr Davison said the move to Winton was an exciting one for the event, “Winton can accommodate all the action that the EASTERNATS is famous for, including cruising, burnouts, street drags, stampede and go to whoa all complimented by extensive display areas, first class pit & garage facilities. On-site camping is a further benefit with the potential to build the EASTERNATS into a full scale regional spectacular. The Benalla Auto Club are to be congratulated on the upgrades and improvements that have been made to the facility.”

“Winton is perfect for the EASTERNATS and the participants will love it”. he said.

The CEO of Winton Motor Raceway, Mick Ronke, said the Easternats were a welcome addition to the club’s existing motorsport events. “Winton has evolved over the last 50 years into a nationally significant venue. Our operation is an excellent example of the local motorsport community working with police and council to provide safe and orderly events with minimal disruption and maximum local benefit” he said “We look forward to working with Jon and anticipate a large number of interstate and Melbourne entrants and patrons will attend. This will be a welcome stimulus to the regional economy.”

Mr Davison said that the event with over seven hundred entries and more than 25,000 spectators has the potential to grow into the largest event in regional Victoria.

The event in 2011 will be staged at Easter from 22nd – 25th April and will include a dedicated Ute Burnout and Show & Shine Competition.
