Supercars heads west for battle in Perth

Triple Eight Race Engineering leads the way heading to Perth.

13 May 2024

The Repco Supercars Championship heads to Western Australia for the Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint, with championship frontrunners and Triple Eight Race Engineering teammates Will Brown and Broc Feeney leading the way.

After three rounds of the 2024 season, Brown holds a 71-point lead over Feeney heading into this weekend.

 The pair exchanged paint last time out in New Zealand, as Feeney tried to fend off Brown before the latter eventually got the better of his teammate and claimed the win. 

Both are expected to be at the front again in Perth this weekend, where Supercars will race twice at the Wanneroo Circuit.

Saturday’s Race 9 and Sunday’s Race 10 will both commence at 3:45pm local time and will run to 55 laps. With sunset in Perth at approximately 5:25pm, Supercars will not only race into sunset but into prime-time viewing in eastern states.

The Perth round will also feature the new-for-2024 SuperSprint format, which sees drivers roll out for 60 minutes of practice on Friday, before Saturday and Sunday action kicks off with a 20-minute practice session.

 Just five drivers in this year’s field have ever won in Perth previously, Brown and Feeney both recorded race victories in 2023.

Brodie Kostecki is set to race on home soil as reigning champion, with the Erebus Motorsport driver scoring a hat-trick of podiums at last year’s event.
