    DIESEL, aka Mark Lizotte, has spent three decades weaving an effortlessly magic musical touch into his rock and blues-fuelled sounds, both as part of the band Johnny Diesel & The Injectors and, more recently, as a solo artist.

    With multiple number one ARIA charting albums under his belt, six ARIA award wins and millions of streams, DIESEL’S trackside performance should not be missed.

    “I haven’t played in this part of Sydney for a long time! We’ll be performing two sets on the night and look forward to seeing you all at Club Menangle for Garrards Miracle Mile on the Trackside stage with my band,” said DIESEL.

    The refreshed 2024 Sky Racing Carnival of Miracles, held across the first two Saturdays in March, is one of the pinnacle harness racing events on the Australasian calendar, with high-stakes racing and vibrant festivities.
