Motorsports fans of all ages will benefit from the latest additions to the Merlin Darwin Triple Crown program.

Organisers have confirmed a full day of practice rounds will start on Friday, 18 June 2021 at Hidden Valley Raceway. Gates will open at 9.30am, with practice sessions for Supercars, Stadium Super Trucks and Australian Superbikes.

Another exciting addition to the program is the Improved Productions, HQ Holdens and Commodore Cup support categories. They will race on Saturday and Sunday, and take part in Friday’s practice rounds.
