Supercars tweaks tyre allocation, rules for Sydney

Soft and super soft compound tyres will be available to teams at the opening round of the 2022 Repco Supercars Championship at Sydney Motorsport Park.

Released earlier this week, Supercars had initially listed hard and super soft compound tyres for the Beaurepaires Sydney SuperNight in the Operations Manual.

That came as a result of the Eastern Creek circuit taking the place of the Newcastle 500 as the season-opener, but was not amended at the time of the release of the Operations Manual.

Now, Supercars has ratified the tyre allocation with the release of its supplementary regulations for Sydney Motorsport Park.

The number of tyres will remain the same, though compounds differ.

Instead, teams will have 28 soft tyres, eight super soft tyres, and four pre-marked soft tyres at their disposal.

Teams will only be allowed to use one set of super soft tyres in each of the 77-lap races. Super soft tyres cannot be used in practice or qualifying.

Notably, Supercars has mandated a 19psi minimum tyre pressure, up from 17psi.

Each race, totalling 300 km, will require two compulsory pit stops to be served.

The Sydney SuperNight is set to take place across March 4-6.
