Records were smashed at Sydney Motorsport Park today, with Jamie Whincup beating Peter Brock's record for career poles, and Scott McLaughlin nailing the quickest lap in practice in a V8 Supercar - will more history be made tomorrow?

Be there to see it in the flesh.

Tomorrow is double points at Sydney Motorsport Park - and there's plenty more to enjoy between V8 Supercars for fans.

The True Colour Track Walk is back by popular demand at 10.30am after resounding success in Ipswich. And for fans who have grandstand or corporate tickets, there is a pit lane walk, offering an insight into one of the most exciting and precise parts of our sport - the pit stop.

In two groups, teams will perform pit stop practice ahead of the race, which requires stops for fuel and tyres, at 10.05am.

So, ensure you arrive early, upgrade your GA ticket to grandstand, have your seat reserved for great viewing when the 200km kicks off at 3.45pm and be free to wander to the front straight to see the cars and stars of the V8 Supercars circuit.

"V8 Supercars want to offer fans unique experiences when they attend the race track - and what is better than access to the cars up-close, and the opportunity to meet and get to know to our drivers?" V8 Supercars Marketing Director John Casey said.

"After positive feedback from fans and teams in Ipswich, and a great turn out at the sydney.com Test Day in February, bringing the True Colour Track Walk back is the ultimate way to give fans more bang for their buck on Sunday."

Including the support categories - such as the Touring Car Masters, during which you can see Australian racing greats John Bowe and Jim Richards continue to play out a rivalry that has been running for 30 years - there are eight races from 8am until the end of day at Sydney Motorsport Park.

The V8 Supercars qualify at 12.40pm - so there's time to grab some lunch, head back to your reserved undercover seat, and be in position to barrack for your favourite as they challenge for ARMOR ALL Pole Position.

Take time to explore the circuit and enjoy the Disney FunZone with the little ones or head to the paddock and watch the teams behind the scenes, as the pressure builds for the double points race.

Will it be Shane van Gisbergen again, or will another competitor trump the quick Kiwi tomorrow?

Upgrade your trackside ticket tomorrow for grandstand viewing - which include the pit walk for pit stop practice - know you have a great sheltered spot, and follow the action on the big screen, as well as on-track.

It's just $25 to upgrade your trackside ticket to a Fanstand ticket (Unreserved seat in any of the yellow bays) or $50 to upgrade your trackside ticket to a Platinum reserved ticket (Reserved seat in bay D, E or F).

What will happen on-track is anyone's guess, but it's safe to say off-track any fan will have a blast at Sydney Motorsport Park.
