Supercars Darwin Triple Crown – Start time, how to watch, channel & more
This weekend Supercars heads to Hidden Valley for the Darwin Triple Crown. Click here to find out how to watch the races, when they start and more.
After being pushed back a week, the first round of a four-week long northern swing for Supercars will take place in the Top End this weekend.
The Triple Crown will feature three short, sharp sprint races, each just 110 kilometres in length – the shortest we've seen since the resumption of the 2020 season.
Each of those races will feature a single mandatory stop for at least two tyres.
Rubber is set to play a major role for the weekend, with the controversial mixed tyre compound rules back. That means just two sets of softs and three sets of hards for all competitive sessions.
There is one tweak – Saturday's qualifying session will take place solely on the hard compound Dunlops. However the remaining sessions and races will be free choice, the only stipulation being that only one compound can be on the car at any one time.
