The new LED display panels on all Gen3 Supercars have broken cover ahead of their debut at the Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint.

Supercars will run the LED (light-emitting diode) panels on all cars from the Perth round to help fans follow the track action.

LED panels were first trialled on the side windows of select cars in Supercars back in 2019.

At last year’s Repco Bathurst 1000, they were trialled on the windscreens of the Gen3 prototypes, and were deemed a success.

The MoTeC-designed displays have been installed on the passenger’s side of the front windscreen on all cars.

The displays replace the day glo competition number stickers, which remain on the side windows and rear windscreen.

In Perth, the displays will show the driver’s position — for example, the race leader will display '01' and so forth.

Such displays have previously been used in the likes of IndyCar and IMSA.

Supercars will be on track on all three days of the Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint.

The new-look displays will make their track debut at Raceway on Friday in the 90-minute practice session.

Cars return on Saturday for knockout ARMOR ALL Qualifying and Race 7, and Sunday’s dual qualifying and dual races.

West Australian local and #99 Coca Cola Camaro driver Brodie Kostecki leads Walkinshaw Andretti United’s Chaz Mostert by 32 points.

Defending champion, Red Bull Ampol Racing's Shane van Gisbergen, is 86 points behind in third.
