With just 10 days to go until the Thrifty Bathurst 500, Supercars welcomed drivers and VIPs to Sydney Harbour today as the 2024 season rapidly revs up.

Supercars drivers and key personnel descended on Sydney Harbour today for a stakeholder luncheon, where executives, sponsors, and dignitaries previewed next weekend’s Thrifty Bathurst 500 and the upcoming Repco Supercars Championship campaign.

2015 Supercars champion Mark Winterbottom, rising Kiwi star Matt Payne, Toowoomba’s Will Brown from Triple Eight, and Dick Johnson Racing winner Anton De Pasquale were all on hand to welcome the sport’s major stakeholders today on stunning Sydney Harbour.

Following a 2023 season that saw 10 drivers and seven different teams claim at least one race win, the 2024 championship looks to be one of the most wide-open championships yet.

World-best tools have been put to use over the offseason to ensure technical parity between the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang ahead of the second season of Gen3 Supercars competition.

Supercars were placed in the wind tunnel at Windshear in North Carolina across December and January to gather invaluable aerodynamic data, while work on equalising engine and powertrain performance has also been undertaken.

The extensive work has been held to ensure that the best team and driver on the day is best-placed to win, which is expected to lead to one of the most competitive and unpredictable championships in Supercars history.


It all kicks off next week at the Thrifty Bathurst 500, February 23-25.
