Supercars can confirm the combined Dunlop Super2 and Dunlop Super3 Series will race again next weekend as one of two support categories competing in the WD-40 Townsville SuperSprint.

Following this morning’s announcement that Supercars will stage a double header in North Queensland both this weekend and next weekend, support categories have been locked in.

The Dunlop Super2 and Dunlop Super3 Series will run one practice session, one ARMOR ALL Qualifying Session and one race on Saturday, followed by one qualifying session and one race on Sunday.

The second support category on the card, the Townsville Tin Tops powered by DriveIt NQ, made up of a mixture of local entrants from across North Queensland in various vehicles, will hold one practice session, one qualifying session and three races over both days of the event.

They will fill the support bill for the Repco Supercars Championship, that will stage a standard SuperSprint format across the two-day event – including one race on Saturday and two on Sunday.

WD-40 SuperSprint Event Manager Sam Pearce said it’s great to have two strong support categories taking part in the second event of the double header.

“We are thrilled to have locked in the combined Dunlop Super2 and Dunlop Super3 Series and the Townsville Tin Tops for the SuperSprint,” Pearce said.

“These categories will be made up of some of the best up and coming drivers from across Australia and drivers from across North Queensland.

“We look forward to seeing a number of these drivers take on the Reid Park circuit this weekend in the NTI Townsville 500 and again the following weekend at the WD-40 Townsville SuperSprint.”

The NTI Townsville 500 will feature two 250km races and three-days of track action. It will be broadcast live on Foxtel and the Seven Network, streaming on Kayo.

The WD-40 Townsville SuperSprint, will be a two-day, three race SuperSprint, broadcast live and ad free exclusively on Foxtel and streamed on Kayo with highlights on the Seven Network.

Both events are supported by Townsville City Council and the Queensland Government, through Tourism and Events Queensland, and features on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar.

Spectators will be permitted to attend both weekends, with corporate facilities open for both events. All fans must always adhere to Government COVID requirements within the circuit precinct.

Tickets for both weekends are available through Ticketek including a special double header offer made exclusively to allow fans to attend both events if purchased prior to 8pm this Saturday. Children under 12 are free with a paying adult.
