Super Trucks

The Super Trucks will make their Tassie debut at the 2020 Tyrepower Tasmania Super400.

Super Trucks feature identically prepared high-horsepower trucks delivered to drivers in race-ready condition, with race winners decided by driver skill rather than individual team engineering and budgets.

Powered by a 600-hp Chevrolet LS V8 engine, the trucks weigh 1,300 kg and are built with a steel-tube frame and fiberglass body. All trucks feature a three-speed transmission, reaching speeds as high as 230 km/h.

Races feature man-made ramps set up in strategic locations throughout each course which allow the trucks to fly through the air nearly 20 feet off the ground and hundreds of feet down course.

Dunlop Super2 Series

The Dunlop Super2 Series always has spectators at the edge of their seats! The series remains the core breeding ground for future Supercar stars and can’t go unmissed with past drivers graduating to race in the main game.

Mark Winterbottom, Scott McLaughlin, Lee Holdsworth, David Reynolds, Cameron Waters, Chaz Mostert, Scott Pye, Nick Percat, Anton De Pasquale and Todd Hazelwood are all part of the elite group of past Dunlop Super2 Series drivers now competing in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. In 2018, Scott McLaughlin became the second Super2 Series Champion to go on and win the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, the only other driver achieving this feat being Mark Winterbottom, who won Super2 in 2003 before taking the main game prize in 2015.

In 2020 we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Dunlop Super2 Series, which remains pivotal in shaping the future of motorsport with rising star and 2019 Champion Bryce Fullwood advancing to take part in the Supercars Championship alongside three other rookies and Super2 graduates: Jack Smith, Jake Kostecki and Zane Goddard.

Make sure you don't miss your opportunity to see the stars of the future make their way around Symmons Plains.
