The Melbourne 400 (known for sponsorship reasons as the Beaurepaires Melbourne 400) is an annual motor racing event for Supercars, held at the Albert Park Circuit in Melbourne, Victoria since 2018. The 2018 edition was the first time that a championship round was contested at the circuit, after several years of supporting the Australian Grand Prix as a non-championship event .
Four quick-fire ARMOR ALL Qualifying sessions have set the grids for this weekend’s Beaurepaires Melbourne 400 races.
Scott McLaughlin claimed three ARMOR ALL Poles from the runs, taking his Supercars career tally to 50, but was denied a clean sweep by Chaz Mostert in the final.
That means Ford’s Mustang will lead the field away in all four races, the first of which starts at 5:55pm on Friday.
Two more follow on Saturday, with the final on Sunday as drivers race for championship points and the Larry Perkins Trophy.
With history of being an exhibition race for the Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix – 2018 saw the Supercars exhibition race become a contest for Virgin Australia Supercars Championship points, and officially known as the Melbourne 400.
On the back of a successful 2nd edition in 2019 as an official Virgin Australia Supercars Championship race, the Melbourne 400 2020 will be injecting mighty Supercars action at the iconic Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit once again! Held over four action-filled days, spectators witness the exhilarating sights and sounds of the Ford, Holden and Nissan V8s, touching incredible speeds of 250km/h! The Melbourne 400 format consists of a four seperate race points system, two 13-lap sprints and two 25-lap races, setting up a Supercars scrap for points!
