Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

THE V8 Su­per­cars are back. Af­ter a six-week mid­sea­son break the se­ries springs back into life with the L&H 500 at Phillip Is­land. It is the first race in the Sea­son of En­durance and will be the warm-up event for next month’s Bathurst 1000. And for the first time two driv­ers will team up in each car.

This is the first time a tour­ing-car en­durance race has been held at Phillip Is­land since the 1970s and a new for­mat is ex­pected to shake things up. Satur­day will fea­ture two 15-lap sprint races for each driver with the com­bined re­sults set­ting the grid for Sun­day’s 500km main event.

Plenty of sup­port races will be pro­vided by Car­rera Cup, Mini Chal­lenge, Tour­ing Car Mas­ters and For­mula Fords.
