The championship battle arrives on the concrete-lined streets of Surfers Paradise for the penultimate round of the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship, the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500.
Erebus Motorsport’s Brodie Kostecki leads the championship by 131 points over Bathurst winner Shane van Gisbergen, with their respective teammates Will Brown and Broc Feeney in third and fourth and Chaz Mostert the best Ford entry in fifth place.
After a Repco Bathurst 1000 dominated by the leading Chevrolet teams, Ford will be hoping further parity adjustments make a difference with just two rounds remaining on punishing street circuits – Gold Coast and Adelaide.
The 2023 Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 is the 27th Supercars event at Surfers Paradise, and the 21st championship round.
There are two 250-kilometre races on the Saturday and Sunday, both preceded by qualifying and a top 10 Shootout.
Dunlop’s soft tyre will be used exclusively across the event.
Supercars will be supported by the Porsche Carrera Cup Championship, V8 SuperUtes and National Sport Sedans.
The likes of The Presets, Client Liaison, Illy, Havana Brown, Mashd N Kutcher, John Course and DJ Total Eclipse perform at the after race concerts.
