Supercars to review revamped practice format

THE revamped practice format trialled at the Perth SuperSprint will be reviewed by the Supercars Commission with a view to deciding if it should feature at future events.

At Perth, the entirety of pre-qualifying mileage came in a single, 90-minute practice session.

All other rounds this season are set to run with multiple shorter practice hitouts.

The Perth format seemed to be well received by teams and fans alike, but there is no hurry to rush it into other events just yet.

“I think it’s something that the Commission needs to sit and discuss and then Supercars can say how it worked for us and the teams can say how it worked for them,” Supercars head of motorsport Adrian Burgess told V8 Sleuth.

“But one of the ideas was to give them a longer session so they can learn the car more because they’re still sort of testing them and understanding the car, but equally you get time to make bigger changes and get a comparative answer there and then.

“The sport from all facets, not just the teams but from broadcast and from Supercars, we’ll sit down with the Commission and discuss how everyone felt about it.

“I think there are pros and I think there are a couple of cons.”

The upcoming Tasmania SuperSprint will involve a pair of half-hour practice sessions as part of a condensed two-day schedule for the main game.
