DUN­LOP V8 SU­PER­CAR SE­RIES The Dun­lop V8 Su­per­car Se­ries pro­vides a dou­ble dose of V8 Su­per­car ac­tion with three ex­cit­ing sprint races over the week­end fea­tur­ing the coun­try’s best young rac­ing tal­ent in cars that are al­most iden­ti­cal to the main V8 Su­per­car Se­ries. This se­ries al­ways pro­vides ex­cit­ing, close rac­ing. The bat­tle for the se­ries lead be­tween FPR driver Chaz Mostert and Fu­jitsu Rac­ing’s Scott McLaugh­lin is in­tense and should be a thriller. The 2012 Cham­pi­onship ti­tle may al­ready be­long to Jack Le Brocq, but the fu­ture stars of Aus­tralian mo­tor­sportwill still be out to make their mark in this fi­nal round of rac­ing, with the Rookie of the Year ti­tle still up for grabs. In con­tention is lo­cal ace Ma­cauley Jones, son of V8 Su­per­car team boss Brad Jones. He is less than a race win away from tak­ing the hon­our from Sam Power.

Hot on his heels: Chaz Mostert chas­ing Dun­lop V8 Se­ries ri­val

Nick Per­cat into the cor­ner.

On the move: For­mula At­lantic and For­mula Ford classes prom­ise plenty of ex­cit­ing open-wheel rac­ing.
