Supercars Townsville SuperSprint – Start time, how to watch, channel & more

The second of two Townsville SuperSprint events will take place this weekend to wrap up Supercars' northern swing.

The format will be mostly the same for the second blast around the Townsville streets, with three 110-kilometre races, each requiring a single mandatory stop for at least two tyres.

Saturday's action will feature a three-part qualifying session culminating in a Top 10 Shootout followed by the first of the three races.

On Sunday there will be two rapid-fire 10-minute qualifying sessions, setting the grids for the second and third races.

The same tyre regulations will be in use as well, with teams limited to five new sets of soft-compound Dunlop rubber from the start of Qualifying 1 onwards.

This weekend could be pivotal in Townsville specialist Jamie Whincup's title bid. With just four events to go this season, making more in-roads on Scott McLaughlin's 123-point series lead would go a long way to setting up a championship showdown at the Bathurst 1000 next month.
