Tuesday night’s latest round of the Supercars Repco Pro Eseries will again feature a mix of oval and road course racing.

Following a fan vote that pitched the Charlotte Motor Speedway oval against Laguna Seca, the former has been locked in to host the first two races of Round 5.

It follows a thrilling pair of races at the Michigan oval last week, where the winner was decided by less than 0.05 seconds on both occasions.

While tight racing is again expected, Charlotte will pose a slightly different challenge for the drivers, as it is shorter in length but with more aggressive banking than Michigan.

The North Carolina venue featured in the BP All Stars Eseries earlier this year, where Shane van Gisbergen won despite a crash at the finish line.

Van Gisbergen will again race against the Pros this week, following his debut last Tuesday night at the Michigan/Monza double-header.

The Kiwi proved competitive at the oval venue, scoring a third-place in the opening Michigan race.

Charlotte will host the Seiko Top 5 Shootout and the first two races of Round 5, before the action concludes with a single race at Belgium’s legendary Spa-Francorchamps.

Walkinshaw Andretti United’s reigning Supercars Eseries winner Josh Rogers continues to lead the 2020 standings with just two rounds remaining.

Teammate Dayne Warren is second, 99 points adrift, while Brad Jones Racing’s Madison Down is just two points further behind in third.

Fans can watch each week’s racing live from 8:30pm – 10:30pm AEDT on Fox Sports 506 and Kayo.

Each live event can also be viewed online via Supercars Facebook Page, Supercars YouTube  and Supercars Twitch.

Kayo will also have full races available on demand via their streaming services after each event.

Round 5’s broadcast will be co-hosted by 2020 Bathurst 1000 winner Garth Tander, joining regular commentators Chad Neylon and Jonathan Simon.
