AUSSIE V8 SUPERCAR V8 Supercars is Australia’s premier motorsport discipline with the championship traditionally ending in the first days of summer in the Southern Hemisphere. While the rest of us face the prospect of a chilly winter, blazing sunshine and soaring temperatures will greet the drivers at November’s two rounds before the season finale at the beginning of December.
After October’s big ‘classics’ at Bathurst and Surfers Paradise, the teams and drivers temporarily leave Australian soil for the Kingdom of Bahrain. It’s the third time that the series has visited the Middle East and the F1 circuit awaits them. This race is the furthest the championship travels all season and the year’s most ‘exotic’ race will be screened ‘DELAYED-AS-LIVE’ in its entirety – not just the three races, but qualifying too – with the two day meeting taking place on Friday and Saturday.
Two weeks later the caravan returns to Australia with Tasmania holding round 13 at Symmons Plains. The event should be critical in deciding the destination of the title and Motors TV has all three races ‘DELAYED-AS-LIVE’.
