Previous Darwin winners Garth Tander and Todd Kelly will be online today at 12pm AEST to answer your questions, ahead of their appearances on tonight's episode of Inside Supercars.

Previewing the upcoming SKYCITY Triple Crown, the factory Holden and Nissan drivers join the panel to discuss this weekend's racing and reflect on the season so far, which sees Tander sixth in the Championship and Kelly 11th.

Tander earned a podium result at the season opening Clipsal 500, while Kelly's best finish has been fifth, as the Nissans proved strong at the recent NP300 Navara Winton SuperSprint.

"I'm really looking forward to getting there [Darwin] and seeing what the track's like," Kelly told v8supercars.com.au, referring to the newly resurfaced Hidden Valley circuit.

"I certainly enjoy the track, have gone good there in the past and am really looking forward to throwing a pair of shorts on again ... I'm looking forward that as much as the race meeting!" he laughed.

Tander also managed a fifth place result at Winton - in Sunday's 200km race - and praised his HRT team's strategy, though the end of the race was a tough battle as tyres dropped off, a safety car a handful of laps earlier than they would have liked.

"We struggled a bit at the end but maintained track position and got home in fifth," Tander told v8supercars.com.au after the race.

"Strategy-wise we did something different, we used the softs [tyres] at the start to get us out of the low teens where we qualified. We still have a lot of work to do ... [but] the strategy worked well, we got up inside the inside the 10 first eight laps, pitted, put hards on and our hard speed was reasonably strong in the middle part of the race."

Ask Kelly and Tander your questions at 12pm today at v8supercars.com.au, and stay tuned for the show on FOX SPORTS 506 at 7.30pm.

Other features include Neil Crompton explaining a cool suit ahead of the sweltering Darwin round, as Chad Neylon takes over hosting duties this week, with Riana Crehan also on the panel.
