For the ITM Auckland SuperSprint event, BJR will have not one, but two Coregas NZ Racing Supercars on the grid. Nick Percat and Tim Slade will showcase Coregas NZ colours, similar to what Supercar fans saw on Car #8 in Phillip Island and Perth earlier this year.

 

All sessions will be LIVE on FOX Sports across the weekend, plus a highlights package on Channel Ten/One HD. Check your local guides for times.
