Details of the format for V8 Supercars’ pre-season SuperTest at Sydney Motorsport Park have emerged.
As previously announced, the test, which controversially clashes with the Bathurst 12 Hour, will be run over two days for the first time.
A note recently released to teams confirmed just two hours of open test running will take place on the Sunday.
The two hour hit-out will be held in one block from 1000 on Sunday before a 60 minute track walk for fans on pit straight.
A one-at-a-time, full field Shootout will then be held later in the afternoon to complete the day’s action.
The Shootout will be run in the reverse of the pit garage order, ensuring that 2014 champion Jamie Whincup will run last.
Saturday’s proceedings will follow a more traditional format with teams and drivers given six and a half hours of track time to work on set ups and development ahead of the new season.
Teams will also take part in a televised launch of their 2015 liveries, although they are allowed to unveil their new colours prior to the event.
