McLaughlin and van Gisbergen have narrowed in the Championship odds considerably, whilst fantastic odds are available on the likeable Craig Lowndes, Whincup, Reynolds and Fabian Coulthard.
Fans and Drivers alike can’t wait for the next round of the Supercars Championship, the Sydney SuperNight 300 on August 3 & 4. The SuperNight idea is radical new concept; a one-off 300 kilometre race around the Eastern Creek Raceway at Sydney’s Motorsport Park on Saturday night, August 4.
Supercars galloped into the night once before in Abu Dhabi some 20-odd years ago, however the Sydney SuperNight 300 will be the first time on Australian soil and excited fans can’t wait.
The Friday night practice session on the night of August 3 shouldn’t be missed as the cars and drivers become acquainted and will need to adjust quickly to the unfamiliar conditions. It sounds exactly like the recipe for a few thrills-and-spills along the way, right?
Many of the drivers have never raced under lights and those few that have only did so in a go-kart equipped with small 125 cc as young teenagers many years ago, as opposed to going around in the 300km/h high-tech vehicles they’ll be steering through Sydney Motorsport Park on the weekend.
Sydney SuperNight throws Championship Odds Wide Open
Championship duelling drivers Scott McLaughlin and Shane van Gisbergen have dubbed the maiden Sydney SuperNight 300 as a “wildcard” in their Supercars Championship battle and have both admit anything can happen.
Van Gisbergen has cut the McLaughlin’s championship lead to only 131 points in Queensland last weekend.
That win gave Van Gisbergen a 300-point buffer over the rest of the chasing pack of drivers behind — teammate Jamie Whincup, David Reynolds and Craig Lowndes.
