This weekend, the Goulburn Speedway host what has been touted as the biggest event to take place there in a decade.
The Formula 500 Australian Championship will take place this Friday and Saturday night in Goulburn for the first time since 2011, and president of the Goulburn Formula 500 Club, Murray Johnson, expects it to be a big hit with racing fans.
"We're expecting a huge crowd, we really are," Johnson said.
"It's hard to put a figure on it, but people will be coming in from out of town, for sure."
The action will begin on Friday night from 5.00pm with the heat races, and the final will take place at the same time on Saturday night.
The F500 action will see 38 drivers take part in their quest to claim the title, while there will also be some junior F500s on display for the entertainment of the fans, which will mark the first time juniors have ever run in conjunction with the Australian title.
Young local Harry Dean will be one of the junior drivers taking part.
The event has come to Goulburn as part of a rotational system which sees the finals travel to each state and territory.
With both Speedcars and Sprintcars scheduled to take to the course, Johnson expects fans to be treated to a riveting show.
"The Speedcars are one of the traditional big Australian divisions," Johnson said.
"They're running and it's the first time they've been in Goulburn for 25 years. They've put on such a great display of racing.
"On the Saturday night we've got the Sprintcars as well. They are 800-odd horsepower, big-winged Sprintcars, and they'll be the fastest division to ever go around Goulburn speedway.
"We've got ten of them coming on the little 385-metre Goulburn bullring, it's gonna be fast."
Queensland native Liam Williams was the winner of the 2011 event in Goulburn, and will come into this year's event as the favourite having also won in 2015/16, 2016/17, and 2017/18.
"He's back again this year and he's still the reigning champion and he's actually trying to win his fifth title," Johnson said.
"He's dominant, he's very, very good."
Johnson also thanked all of the local and regional sponsors for their support in facilitating the event.
There will be a gala dinner on Thursday night ahead of the championships' beginning on Friday.
