For a third year, Supercars will hold its annual Indigenous Round in Darwin

This week marks a big step towards the third annual Supercars Indigenous Round, with teams beginning to reveal their 2024 Darwin liveries.

Since 2022, Supercars has celebrated its annual Indigenous Round at Hidden Valley Raceway at the Darwin Triple Crown.

As part of the celebrations, the Darwin Triple Crown features a grid of incredible artwork by First Nations artists, who illustrate rich storytelling in their unique designs.
