Supercars Darwin SuperSprint – Start time, how to watch, channel & more
The Supercars action continues in the Top End this weekend, with the Darwin SuperSprint to round out the double-header.
Like the Triple Crown, the SuperSprint will feature three short, sharp sprint races, each just 110 kilometres in length.
Qualifying for those three races will effectively be held over five sessions, starting with a three-part format for Saturday's opener.
There will be two 10-minute knock-out sessions, followed by a Top 15 Shootout.
On Sunday there will be two traditional qualifying sessions for the two races.
The major change for this weekend is the tyre allocation, with only the soft compound Dunlops on offer. Each driver will have 20 new tyres at their disposal from the end of Practice 2 onwards.
