SCT LOGISTICS

The BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown can’t come soon enough for a fired up Jack Smith this weekend.

 

Coming off the back of his best Supercars finish to date with a P10 at the Sydney SuperSprint, Jack heads to Hidden Valley feeling confident and eager to keep the top ten results coming.

 

It’s a tricky little circuit, Hidden Valley, with that long front straight and twisty back section that puts a premium on a good handling car. You can bet that the SCT MotorSports team will be working hard to tune up the BJR commodore to perfection. Throw in those hot Darwin conditions, that take their toll on the tyres, and we have a really awesome weekend’s racing to look forward to!

 

Keep up to date with Jack on the SCT MotorSports Facebook page across the event for the latest updates. Broadcast of the race will be LIVE on channel 10 and FOX Sports across the weekend. Your local TV times and coverage information can be found here - https://www.supercars.com/tv-schedule/
