The Dunlop Series will use a revised qualifying format when the 2024 season resumes in Townsville.

Super2 and Super3 drivers will hit the track at this weekend’s NTI Townsville 500, the third round of the 2024 season.

The first two rounds in Bathurst and Perth used a split qualifying format, with Group 1 and Group 2 split into upper and lower 50 percent groups following practice. The grid was then set by the combined results of the two groups.

Previously, qualifying sessions were run as two separate groups for Super2 and Super3 drivers.

In Townsville, all drivers will compete for Boost Mobile Pole in single 20-minute sessions, which will set the grid for the two 40-minute races.

The change ensures drivers won’t be at risk of being placed in Group 1 in qualifying should they be off the pace in Friday practice.

The single session also removes possible track evolution advantages for either group, meaning all drivers have the same track conditions to fight for pole.

There are 25 cars entered for this weekend's Dunlop Series action, with Jack Perkins joining the Super2 field, and Dean Fiore substituting for Jett Johnson.
