KL City GP reveals V8 Supercars demo schedule
Kuala Lumpur City Grand Prix organisers have confirmed three V8 Supercars demonstration races at the inaugural event in the Malaysian capital from August 7-9.
As a precursor for next year’s V8 Supercar championship round at the KL City Grand Prix, it was announced earlier this year that Craig Lowndes, Will Davison, Scott McLaughlin, Todd Kelly and Chaz Mostert will contest a series of demonstration runs at the 3.2km street circuit.
A draft version of the schedule released by KL City GP event organisers sees the five drivers compete in 2×30 minute free practice sessions on Friday, before a 30 minute qualifying session and 3×30 minute race demonstrations held over Saturday and Sunday.
Details of how the demonstration races will run, including whether a trophy will be presented to the winner, are yet to be finalised with V8 Supercars.
The Australian category will form part of the support bill for the event alongside the Formula Masters China Series and the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia one make championship.
The event will be headlined by the KL City GP GT Cup which will host a 40 minute race for GT3 machinery.
