The Supercars field will be stacked with Dunlop Super2 Series winners when action kicks off this weekend at the Superloop Adelaide 500.
It’s why there’s every bit of worth in checking out the second-tier category, starting with two practice sessions today at 12:55pm and 4:55pm local time.
A whopping seven current main game drivers have won the Super2 title, including the past five title holders; Cameron Waters, Garry Jacobson, Todd Hazelwood, Chris Pither and Bryce Fullwood.
Wind the clock back further and Supercars champions Mark Winterbottom (2003) and Scott McLaughlin (2012) also got their hands on the trophy.
Last year’s winner Fullwood is tipping a competitive season ahead.
“Obviously the guys with Matt White (Motorsport) did a really good job with us last year so I probably expect Tom (Randle) to be really sharp,” Fullwood told Supercars.com.
“Obviously he’s a good steerer and he’s in my car from last year which I felt was a pretty good package, so I think he’ll definitely be up the front.
"I think Kurt Kostecki will be up there, Brodie (Kostecki) will be too.
“Whilst the field is only 13 cars this weekend, I think the competition certainly hasn’t dropped at all so it will be very interesting and I will be glued to the TV watching, that’s for sure.”
With almost half of the field new to the category and some incumbents getting a change of colours over summer, Supercars.com has taken the opportunity to collate the series’ 2020 liveries.
