The spectacular Stadium Super Trucks and the sensational value Grandstand Superpass have given sports fans even more reasons to be at the grand finale of the 2015 V8 Supercars Championship, the Coates Hire Sydney 500.

Created by former IndyCar racer Robby Gordon, the V8-powered Stadium Super Trucks were a fan favourite at this year's Clipsal 500 Adelaide and the recent Castrol Gold Coast 600 and now Sydney fans will get the chance to see them in all their flying glory.

They will make their debut at the event, with drivers including Australia's own Matt Mingay, Matt Brabham and Paul Morris and internationals including Burt Jenner who won the first race on the Gold Coast last month.

Paul Morris was on hand at Sydney Olympic Park today to give fans a taste of what to expect, watched on by V8 Supercar championship contender David Reynolds, Sydney Thunder's Shane Watson, West Tigers' Aaron Woods and GWS GIANTS' Shane Mumford.

The Western Sydney clubs came together to promote the Grandstand Superpass. Fans who purchase a three day Grandstand Superpass for the Sydney 500 will be able to attend a Sydney Thunder Big Bash game,Wests Tigers NRL game, GWS GIANTS AFL match and a day at the Sydney Royal Easter Show free in 2016.

"This is an event you don't want to miss. Not only will the V8 Supercars championship be decided but fans will enjoy incredible entertainment including the Stadium Super Trucks," he said.
