The Virgin Australia Supercars Championship has come a long way from its origins as a single race championship in the 1960’s. The motorsports event is now the biggest of its kind within Australasia and has become one of our nation’s favourite sports, being the third most attended and fourth most watched. And as the sport becomes recognized on global frontiers, the world turns to Australia as the host nation for the best touring car category in the world.
Taking place in the second half of the race season, the Sydney Super Sprint marks an opportunity for drivers to catch up to the field, or for those out in front, to get away from it. Taking place at the Sydney Motorsport Park, the track offers a range of corners from low to high speed with slow entry speeds to turns two and eight giving drivers a chance to pass.
The circuit at SMP has been operating since 1990, and initially held its first touring race as a 500km enduro in the same year. The track became the Skaife playgrounds during his unbeatable streak from 1999-2002, and with Jamie Whincup taking the title in 2016, the Sydney Motorsport Park has become certified Holden territory.
