Round 3 of the Repco Supercars Pro Eseries will feature two races at the hallowed Mount Panorama circuit.

Following visits to Belle Isle, Silverstone, Montreal and Barcelona, the virtual iRacing competition returns to home soil next Tuesday night.

Unlike the first two rounds that involved a trio of races, two 16-lap heats around Bathurst will carry 150 points each.

Both races will have a compulsory pitstop for four new tyres, while the regulations pre-empt a mandatory full-field caution being implemented at the discretion of the stewards.

The grid for the first leg will be determined from a 20-minute qualifying session, with Race 8 subsequently becoming a reverse-grid occasion.

Defending champion Josh Rogers leads the series after two rounds, with his Walkinshaw Andretti United teammate Dayne Warren in third – split by Madison Down of Brad Jones Racing.
