Darwin to host 2022 Indigenous Round

In a first for motorsport, preparations have begun for the 2022 Merlin Darwin Triple Crown to become the official Indigenous Round of the Supercars Championship.

Territory Larrakia artist Trent Lee has created artwork inspired by the shape of the Hidden Valley track, it represents the Larrakia land, sea and people and will be the centrepiece of the Darwin Indigenous Round. 

The artwork represents how sport brings people from all walks of life together. The snake is a track with the head placed at the hairpin bend, the most dangerous part, the clapsticks represent different teams and the eggs symbolise all the people coming together to enjoy and celebrate the event.  It will be available for use by the Supercars teams moving forward.
