The track's creation was sanctioned by a motorsport-mad Chief Minister in 2007 as the centerpiece of a territory-wide drive to increase tourism in the area. It is currently used during one weekend every January to host the Northern Territory Festival of Speed. Boasting several configurations and its own karting track, the coconut palm-lined complex takes six weeks to construct and three more to dismantle. However all that effort has paid dividends with local tourism booming since the inaugural outing of a course which is already rivaling Australia's more established street circuits such as Adelaide and Melbourne, the latter of which it hopes to replace as the Australian Grand Prix venue.
