The pinnacle of motor racing in Australia is the V8 Supercars Championship and the 2017 edition offers plenty of excitement after the last round at Ipswich, where Scott McLaughlin and Chaz Mostert split the featured races on the weekend.
The championship now heads to New South Wales for the Red Rooster Sydney SuperSprint, and you won’t miss a minute when watching live using a standard or HD TV, as well as mobile streaming through a Free Trial.
2017 Sydney Supersprint Preview
The Red Rooster Sydney Supersprint is held at the Sydney Motorsports Park in New South Wales. The format consists of a 120km race on Saturday and a 200km race on Sunday. Last year Jamie Whincup took the most points, when he finished second on the first day and won the race on the second day, a hugely satisfying performance for his team. Given he’s currently second in the Driver’s Standings, a similar result this year would surely be welcome.
The veteran Craig Lowndes leads all active drivers with three victories in the event, the last coming in 2012. Heading into this round Lowndes is seventh in the standings, so he has a fair amount of distance to make up, as the leader Scott McLaughlin is some 579 points further up. McLaughlin has been on a tear the past ten races, having finished no lower than second in the nine of the features. So don’t miss a minute of this exciting 2017 V8 Supercars Championship action as there’s no telling who will provide the most spectacular footage, or which driver will greet the judge and move up in the standings when the series settles on the weekend.
