Supercars ditches timed races concept

SUPERCARS will not introduce timed races this season after all.

A format shake-up had initially been flagged for the Perth, Darwin and Tasmania rounds of the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship, with each to feature two-hour long races without a pre-determined lap count (as opposed to three shorter sprint races as was previously the case).

Super2 moved to 40-minute timed races last year, while the concept is commonplace in GT racing.

However, it has since become clear that the Supercars Commission has backflipped on the decision.

All three aforementioned rounds will still be run to a two-race format, but now with fixed distances in place.

At Wanneroo and Symmons Plains, it will be a pair of 55-lap races, each totalling 133km and 132km respectively.

For Hidden Valley in the Northern Territory, there will be two 47-lap races (137km each).

All up, there will be 24 races this year across 12 rounds.
