Drivers in the Repco Supercars Pro Eseries will twice have to nail a qualifying lap as part of a tweak to the Round 2 format.
In Tuesday’s season-opener, a single qualifying session led into the first race before a reverse grid heat; with starting positions for the finale determined based on points accrued to that time.
For Round 2, involving virtual visits to long-time Formula 1 circuits at Montreal and Barcelona, two separate qualifying sessions will be held.
The bulk of the action will take place at Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve – also including a reverse grid race – before Spain takes centre stage.
Dynamic skies will be enabled, meaning drivers may have to adjust to changeable conditions throughout the races.
Round 2 action will be broadcast on Fox Sports 506, Kayo, Sky Sports NZ and Supercars’ digital channels from 8:30-10:30pm AEDT next Tuesday.
