Wasn't that gap as a result of the KL event falling over?

Sydney night race locked in for 2018

Dubbed the Red Rooster Sydney SuperNight 300, the August 4 event will feature a single 300km race run in a three-hour window from 7-10pm.

What kind of a crowd are they hoping to get to a night race in the middle of winter in Blacktown? Great idea, but run it in the warmer months

I love the race format.... but it's hardly "Twenty/20 style" which they have been talking about, this is a much more traditional sort of race format!

Agreeing with you on winter, i wonder if they even expect a crowd

Im interested how a 300km race in a 3 hour event on a Saturday evening is "traditional"sort of race format?" what race has held that format before?

I presume he means in terms of the distance (not that it was being held at night.)

Very little chance of spectators turning up so obviously a Foxtel only show. The Warbler is going from success to success. Someone once said " Wouldn't it be great to be in business if you didn't have to have those pesky CUSTOMERS".

Maybe they could double feature it with the drive in next door.
Put Senna the movie on the big screen...

They play Twenty / 20 during the day too.

If scheduling a race a night is Supercars idea of Big Bash then they have failed to learn from what cricket has achieved.

The beauty of big bash cricket is the pace of the game, and minimal downtime.

At odds with hair-trigger Schenken, the Supercars schedule.

Traditional in the sense we have a single race of a significant distance.

Surely if they wanted a Twenty/20 style format, something like the old 3x20mins format under lights fits the bill perfectly

If it's "made for TV" then it goes against the grain if they are having what is in effect the usual Sunday "Supersprint" mini-enduro, just running it under lights... I'd have thought something like the old 3x20mins format is more attractive for a made-for-TV spectacular?

I personally love the race format they are suggesting, I wish they'd do it at every round because i like having one race and one winner from a weekend (Just like F1, MotoGP, NASCAR Cup Series etc..) and I like night racing...... but as a motor racing enthusiast I wouldn't have thought i'm the type of person they are trying to attract, the way this event has been spoken of until now anyway?
