2023 Supercars Sydney SuperNight – Start time, how to watch, channel & more

Supercars will shine under lights for the only time this season this weekend with the Sydney SuperNight.

As has become recent tradition, the Sydney Motorsport Park venue in Eastern Creek will host a spectacular Saturday night race.

That will be contested over a fascinating 200 kilometres with just a single mandatory refuelling stop which could see teams attempt a tyre-stretching one-stop strategy.

The night race comes as part of a rapid-fire two-day format for Supercars.

Supercars doesn't hit the track until Saturday afternoon with two half-hour practice sessions followed by a three-part knock-out qualifying session.

Once the sun sets the first race of the weekend bursts into life.

It's then a quick turnaround on Sunday with a 15-minute all-in qualifying session before a 140-kilometre sprint race with no refuelling and a single tyre stop.

The series is delicately poised heading to Sydney with just seven points between Erebus teammates Will Brown and Brodie Kostecki.

The Triple Eight drivers are well and truly in touch as well Broc Feeney just 26 points back and Shane van Gisbergen 72 points behind.

The form of the Ford teams, meanwhile, is a real unknown given the latest parity change, a move to a smaller throttle body that is hoped will improve drivability and rear tyre life.
