Update: See this weekends Bathurst 1000 race guide.
2023 sees the V8 Supercars Championship in a different era under a new Gen3 ruleset, featuring all new cars designed to enhance the live racing spectacle.
There will be 25 cars competing, split across 6 Camaro and 5 Mustang racing teams. With Holden having bowed out of Supercars last year, the rivalry is now Ford vs Chevrolet, which was a feature of the early years of the Australian Touring Car Championship.
Some changes in the calendar for 2023 include the Newcastle 500 returning to season opener after a 3-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Sandown 500 back for the first time since 2019.
