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

·2-min read

Supercars will make a second consecutive visit to Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend, after plans to race at Winton in northern Victoria were scuppered by a fresh COVID-19 outbreak in Melbourne.

Like last month it will be a three-race format in Sydney, but with one spectacular change – a race under lights. SMP's brand new $16 million permanent lighting will make an earlier-than-expected debut on Saturday night, illuminating the first 32-lap race.

Two more 32-lap races will be held during the day time on Sunday.

All three races will require a single mandatory pitstop for at least two tyres, with strategy set to play a major role. Like last time teams will be limited to just five new sets for qualifying and the races, however this time the allocation is two sets of softs and three sets of hards.

In other words it will be nearly impossible for a single driver to win all three races. 

When is the Supercars Sydney SuperSprint?

There will be three 130-kilometre sprint races at Sydney Motorsport Park, each requiring a single pitstop during which at least two tyres need to be changed.

Race 1 will start under lights at 6:25 pm on Saturday followed by Race 2 at 12:25pm on Sunday and Race 3 at 2:50pm on Sunday.

Race 1: 6:25pm – 7:23pm AEST

Sunday 19th July 2020
