Exciting things are happening in the 2019 edition of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, which fans can enjoy live with no ad-breaks during racing.
This makes for a more engaging motorsport event you surely don’t want to miss, and a free trial is up for grabs so you can watch your favourite round of the 2019 Supercars live online using a variety of devices even if it’s not available in your city or state through free to air TV.
2019 Supercars Championship
The ultimate V8 Supercars championship began on March 2, with the Adelaide 500, followed by their inclusion during the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne two weeks later. This marks the second time that this particular round competes for championship points, and is just one of the few surprise announcements that the 2019 Supercars schedule has revealed. The Sydney SuperNight 300 was removed from the calendar and replaced with the Perth SuperNight, while the always popular Sandown 500 has been moved to November to ensure it doesn’t clash with the AFL and NRL finals.
There are still no rounds outside Australia and New Zealand, despite significant discussion in recent years about possible races in both Indonesia and China. Former V8 Supercars CEO James Warburton made the expansion overseas a key aim during his tenure, and though new CEO Sean Seamer has been less vocal about the move, it is still likely to materialise at some point in the near future.

2019 Supercars Championship Preview
Beginning in the first week of March, the 2019 Supercars Championship consists of 15 rounds, the last of which is scheduled at the end of November. There are notable changes to this year’s Supercars championship, perhaps most notably the removal of the Sydney SuperNight, which has been replaced by the Perth SuperNight, set to take place at Barbagallo Wanneroo Raceway. The Sandown 500 will become the penultimate race on the calendar, while the Auckland SuperSprint will be moved forward to September.
The remaining rounds are roughly the same, though there are a couple of minor changes. One of these relates to the Phillip Island event – long known as the Phillip Island 500, it will return to a SuperSprint format in 2019. The season also begins earlier this year than in the pastas a result of the Melbourne Grand Prix being moved forward – the Melbourne 400, as support races to that event, will subsequently be held earlier, as will the Adelaide 500 that precedes it. In total, there will be seven V8 Supercars free to air championship weekends that will be shown Live on channel Ten, while Kayo Sports will have all fifteen rounds Live, and ad-break free during the featured races.
