Your guide to the 2018 Coates Hire Newcastle 500

What’s on at the Novotel?

Located within the V8 circuit, Novotel Newcastle Beach is the perfect rest stop to escape the heat in our air conditioned restaurant, and is only a 30 second walk up to the closest viewing point of the track.

This year we are bringing the drinks and food outside. Find us out the front of the hotel near our alfresco dining area, where you can sit in the shade or soak up some sunshine while enjoying a beverage or some food to go.

Bistro Dalby
Enjoy the comfort of our air conditioned restaurant with live TV screens of all the race action, cold beverages and a special lunch menu to keep you refuelled for the rest of the day.

We have some exciting things coming to our lobby over the V8 weekend, stay tuned.
