Tickets are now on sale for the 2015 Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint as V8 Supercar legend Marcos Ambrose is set to return to his home track from March 27-29.

The Tassie native returns to Symmons Plains Raceway for the second Championship round of the 2015 season, making his return to Australia's premier motorsport category after spending six-years competing in NASCAR.

The Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint will mark 10 years since Ambrose last took to his home circuit, and the two-time V8 Supercar Champion is looking forward to laying down some rubber on Tassie soil come March.

"The chance to return to Australia and drive for DJR Team Penske is a unique and incredible opportunity," Ambrose said of being part of Penske's assault on the V8 Supercar Championship.

"I've got a lot of strengths around me with Dick Johnson Racing, Team Penske, putting their might behind this project... it's going to take it's time but we believe we're in racing to win and that's what our intent will be.

"I'm happy to return to Australia and go to the next chapter in my racing career."

2014 Champion elect Jamie Whincup was victorious at Symmons Plains this year - a competitor Ambrose is looking forward to rubbing panels with at his home event in 2015.

"He's done an amazing job - and congratulations to him, he certainly has an approach to his racing that has worked, incredible talent behind the wheel, plus he's got, clearly a lot of dedication to his craft and the professionalism to get it done year in year out," he said.

"So you look at the series, he's certainly up there at the top of the list of guys to compete against.

"And there's more than just one. I look at some of the footage I've watched this year and there are some amazing drivers down there. Young drivers I have yet to race against and I'm looking forward to competing against some more."

Ambrose's Tasmanian homecoming can be enjoyed from the covered grandstands available, or racegoers can see the new DJR Team Penske operation up close by purchasing a paddock pass for the event.
