Back by popular demand, the True Colour Track Walk on Sunday will give fans the chance to see the V8 Supercars stars and cars up close at the Sydney Motorsport Park 400.

The addition to the program at the Coates Hire Queensland 400 was considered an overwhelming success - so this weekend, Sydney fans will be treated with 55 minutes on the front straight, similarly to the pre-season test at the same venue.

Michael Caruso's Norton Hornet will be running a special black livery for the event, what the team describes as an 'inversion' of the traditional Norton colours.

For the #36 driver -who was born and raised in Sydney - the True Colour Track Walk is a chance to share his new look Nissan with fans.

"My Norton Hornet has a new livery for this event, so people will be able to see it in the flesh -I reckon it looks good and I hope everyone else does too," Caruso told v8supercars.com.au.

"It was great to get up close with the fans on the grid at Queensland Raceway for the True Colour track walk, and I'm looking forward to doing it again in Sydney.

"There's not many motor racing categories in the world that allow the fans to get close and personal with the cars, so it's a great treat for anyone who'll be at Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend."

Feedback from teams and drivers was positive after the last event, many sharing the great experience through social media.

Another positive, which is being repeated at the Sydney Motorsport Park 400, is a pit stop demonstration, with teams running in two groups on Sunday morning while corporate and grandstand ticket holders watch on from pit lane, from 10.05am.

With a range of great support categories - including the Touring Car Masters, which will only appear in Sydney at this meeting, alongside the V8 Supercars for 2014 - be sure to head to Sydney Motorsport Park for what is the final Super Sprint event before the long-distance Pirtek Enduro Cup kicks off next month.
