Shell V-Power Racing has revealed an example of the new LED panels that will be trialled at the Watpac Townsville 400 next weekend.

The squad has posted a picture on social media showing the LED panel that has been fitted to Scott McLaughlin’s Ford Mustang, which will be among several cars involved in the trial, confirmed by Supercars earlier this week.

Supercars has since advised via its official website that the panels will be placed behind the left-hand side windows where the high-vis competition numbers would normally be stuck on.

They can display position in session, car number, pit stop time, or even a code for the driver’s name.

LED panels are used in IndyCar and sportscar racing around the world, including the Australian GT Championship.

Supercars will trial two suppliers of the information panels with the test set to include examples from Australia’s Motec and Europe’s Lumirank. comment policy
