Dunlop tyre preview: SKYCITY Darwin 400

Wednesday 18th June, 2014 - 6:40am


thumbThe V8 Supercars SKYCITY Triple Crown Darwin 400 will see a mix of hard and soft Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyres.

For the sprint races, the hard tyre will be used, so expect qualifying to be very crucial.

Teams will use two sets of the Soft SP Sport Maxx tyres for the 200km race on Sunday.

This will trigger an array of strategies making the longer run in the heat at Hidden Valley a fascinating encounter.

There are lots of differing ways to use them and some strategies rely to some degree on Safety Car useage but if you happen to be on a fresh set of soft tyres towards the end you could look like a hero.
