Supercars Albert Park: Peter Brock, Craig Lowndes, Mark Skaife in 1996 thriller

Published

on

ALBERT Park’s elevation to Virgin Australia Supercars Championship status for 2018 comes in the category’s 22nd appearance at the Melbourne venue.

Aside from 2007, when Supercars skipped the event, the Australian tin-tops have been a key feature of the Formula 1 weekend.

They were in fact the first cars on track in March 1996, to christen the street circuit that replaced Adelaide as Australia’s F1 host.

After the year’s first three ATCC rounds, a 30-car field assembled for Albert Park, where then-rookie sensation Craig Lowndes would again face-off against the established stars.

The youngster, though, would be on the back foot from the outset, missing practice due to a throttle problem before, impressively, managing fifth in qualifying while learning the circuit.

V8 Supercars 2020, The Bend SuperSprint, preview, schedule: Drivers expect carnage

Published

on

Drivers are expecting The Bend’s West Circuit to generate plenty of entertainment when the 3.41km layout makes its Supercars debut this weekend.

The key change from the usual International Circuit is the omission of the back loop featuring multiple fast right-hand corners. Instead, the new Turn 6 will become a sharp hairpin, linking more directly to the final five corners.

The change should make the The Bend SuperSprint a very different challenge for drivers and engineers alike.
