V8 Supercars and Tourism WA have agreed to shift the date of the Perth SuperSprint next year, following the release of the 2015 AFL calendar, with the local derby between the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers clashing with the date.

The Perth 400 will now be held on May 1-3, two weeks later than originally scheduled.

The event at Barbagallo Raceway is Western Australia's sole V8 Supercars round, and always excites the local fans.

The 2014 event - which staged two 100km races on Saturday, and the 200km dash on Sunday - saw Volvo's first Championship race win, with Scott McLaughlin home ahead of fellow Kiwi Fabian Coulthard. The day's second race was won by crowd favourite Craig Lowndes, as soon-to-be-crowned Champion Jamie Whincup looked to find form after a slump in New Zealand.

Sunday marked the rise of young gun and Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 winner Chaz Mostert, earning his first win for the factory Ford team, crossing the line first in a strategic thriller.

Mark the new date in your calendar, and be there to see who is victorious - the event is the only time West Australians can see the Fords, Holdens, Volvos, Nissans and Mercedes' in the flesh and on the track.
