The V8 Supercars return to the track this weekend for the SKYCITY Triple Crown in Hidden Valley.

Mark Winterbottom leads Craig Lowndes in the points, and with FPR teammate Chaz Mostert winning the valuable 200km dash in Perth last time out the box, and Red Bull's Jamie Whincup desperate to make up lost ground, the Holden versus Ford battle will continue at an all-time high around the 2.87km Darwin circuit.

Both Winterbottom and Lowndes won races at Hidden Valley last year and cannot be discounted in this year's challenge.

Throw in a tight tyre allocation, high degradation and stressful strategy calls to be made, and you've got another weekend of intense battling between all your V8 Supercars favourites.

David Reynolds and Russell Ingall are looking for their first wins for 2014, and in the eyes of the fans - and, in Reynolds' case, five-time champ Whincup - are next in line.

Ensure you don't miss a minute, and support your favourite this weekend by following all the V8 Supercars action.

See it Live

The SKYCITY Triple Crown is one of the favourite events on the V8 Supercars calendar.

With the Rock and Race theme this year, buying tickets to the event means access to awesome concerts Saturday and Sunday night, with the Baby Animals, the Angels, Violent Soho and major headliner Tinie Tempah rocking the tunes.

There's a number of great support categories on-track, with the V8 Utes, Touring Car Masters, Formula Three and Improved Production/Commodore Cup/HQs battling it out, as Matt Mingay pulls crazy stunts and Victor Bray demonstrates what a drag car can do.

The event offers something for everyone in the family, with the Disney Fun Zone for kids, as well as the Hot Wheels Stuntz Inc team, Australian Defence Force displays and a whole lot of fun in merchandise alley, including the chance to get your favourite driver's signature.

You can also try the paddock - keep your eyes peeled as you never know who could be wandering around, getting up close and personal with the V8 Supercars.

Tickets are available now for the always spectacular Darwin event.
