The Inaugural Snowy Mountains 1000 was first held on 27 October 2012 at the Snowy Mountains Airport, Cooma NSW.

The Event welcomed 100 drivers to compete in a 1000 Metre Runway Sprint taking place on the Airport Runway. Drivers and their crew attended the event from all over Australia bringing with them a diverse field of vehicles from all manufacturers including: Ferrari, Holden, Porsche, Nissan, Lamborghini, Toyota, Audi, BMW, Ford and many more. The inaugural event was a great success attracting thousands of spectators from the NSW Snowy Mountains Region, the ACT and as far as Victoria and Queensland. The event was kindly supported by many local and corporate sponsors which has allowed for continued growth.

The Snowy Mountains  1000 was again a great success in 2013. Records were broken from the previous year with the fastest time of 17.269 seconds and top speeds of 308km/h, these results have set the benchmark for 2014. This result of 17.269 makes the Snowy Mountains 1000, the ‘Fastest Timed 1000m Runway Sprint’ in Australia. The variety of manufacturers that attended in 2013 was extremely varied with many rare and unique vehicles and this was a great display for all spectators and motoring enthusiasts. The Snowy Mountains 1000 in conjunction with PowerPlus Racing Fuels also raised over $3000.00 for the Cancer Council by auctioning off  ’Charity Rides’, this was further supported by our sponsors by donating raffled gifts and this was a fantastic outcome for a worthy cause.

The 2016 event is scheduled for Saturday November 26th and is already attracting some very fast and unique cars from around Australia.  With the event proudly supported by local and corporate sponsors we encourage you to come along to check out all the action, there will be something for everyone!
