Round two of the Repco Supercars Championship is upon us and we’re pumped to be heading to the Apple Isle for the Tasmania SuperSprint.
The Symmons Plains circuit, at 2.4km, is the shortest on the Supercars Championship schedule. Symmons Plains is a unique track, the lap times are regularly in the low 50 second barrier. The turn-four hairpin is one of the most well-known corners in Australian motorsport. It requires near-on full lock to get around, and is the slowest corner we go to all season.
This weekend will be the first event to solely use the updated Super Soft tyre compound. Get a good seat on the couch as this is going to make for some very exciting racing!
It’s a compact, two-day format where track time will be at a maximum. Across the weekend there’ll be three sprint races; 44 laps long. The grid for Saturday’s race will feature a three-part knockout qualifying. The grid for Sunday’s two sprint races will be determined by the final classification of a single qualifying session.
There will also be a driver autograph session, Pit Lane Fan Experience and live bands playing in the family zone across the weekend. Tassie, we’re coming in big!
Every session of the event will be broadcast live on Fox Sports 506 and streamed on Kayo. Session times are below so you don’t miss a thing. Head to our social platforms (links below) to keep up to date with the team across the weekend.
