Supercars has announced a variation to the rules regarding licence requirements for drivers, in an aim to open the pathway for aspiring young drivers to compete in the Repco Supercars Championship.

The amendment is to Rule A5.1.3.3 in the Supercars Operations Manual, which states that drivers must have competed in a minimum of six rounds of the Dunlop Super2 Series within the last three years.

Effective immediately, the variation to Rule A5.1.3.3 stipulates that drivers who have finished in the top three of the Dunlop Super3 Series or the Porsche Carrera Cup Australia Series championships in the last three years will be credited with the completion of three Dunlop Super2 Series rounds, towards the six required for a licence to compete in Supercars.

Thus, drivers who have finished in the top three of the Super3 or Carrera Cup championships dating back to the 2020 season will now be eligible to compete in the Repco Supercars Championship upon competing in three Dunlop Super2 Series events.

In full, the amendment reads:

The following criteria will be permitted to a maximum of three (3) Dunlop Super2 Rounds:

  • A Driver having competed in and be one of the first three (3) of the final classification of that Supercars Australia Super3 Series in the last three (3) years, will be credited with three (3) DS2 Rounds towards the six (6) DS2 Rounds as required by Rule A5.1.3.3.

  • A Driver having competed in and be one of the first three (3) of the final classification of the Porsche Carrera Cup Australia Series in the last three (3) years, will be credited with three (3) DS2 Rounds towards the six (6) DS2 Rounds as required by Rule A5.1.3.3.

The Dunlop Super2 and Super3 Series are next in action when the Supercars heads to Sandown, September 15-17, for its fourth round of the 2023 season.

The Repco Supercars Championship is back on track next weekend in Australia’s largest city for the Beaurepaires Sydney SuperNight, taking place July 28-30 at Sydney Motorsport Park.

Tickets to the only night race on the 2023 calendar can be purchased via Supercars.com and Ticketek. Live coverage of the event can be found on Foxtel and Kayo.
