Big Weekend...

The Need To Know For The Townsville 400

THE TRACK

You'd be forgiven for thinking you're watching racing at Melbourne's Albert Park this weekend.

Reid Park is situated south of Townsville's CBD and is part street circuit, part dedicated circuit - just like the Grand Prix track.

It's also set in some parklands.


THE RACING

Saturday and Sunday will both have 70-lap, 200-kilometre races starting at 4.10 in the afternoon (local time).

A Top 10 shootout on Sunday will also settle the grid from 1.15.

 

HOW, WHERE TO WATCH

If you want the practice, qualifying and racing live and ad-free, then Foxtel's the place for it on Fox Sports 506.

Channel 10's also showing this one, broadcasting races live (with ads) on Saturday and Sunday.


WHERE TO FOLLOW?

The official Supercars site is pretty good and so are its Facebook and Twitter pages.

Live timing's available there too.

But for all your breaking Supercar updates, be sure to keep it on Triple M's Facebook and Twitter pages along with our Motorsport page over the weekend.
