How to watch V8 Supercars SuperSprint The Bend live and free
Scott McLaughlin can wrap up a third straight V8 Supercars championship this weekend. This is how to follow the action at Tailem Bend.
The 2020 V8 Supercars Championship enters its penultimate weekend of racing at Tailem Bend in South Australia. A small town about 100km south-east of Adelaide, Tailem Bend is home to SuperSprint The Bend, where some history could be made.
New Zealand's Scott McLaughlin holds a 215-point lead over Jamie Whincup in the championship race. If results go the Ford Mustang driver's way, McLaughlin could seal a third consecutive title and become just the fourth driver ever to achieve that feat.

Who will win V8 Supercars SuperSprint The Bend?
The real question here is if Whincup can prevent McLaughlin from sealing the title and extend it to the final weekend in Bathurst. There are a number of hypothetical situations, but if Whincup fails to finish any of the three races McLaughlin will be just about over the line.
It will be fascinating to see how it all unfolds, but we're expecting the Mustang driver to win at least two of this weekend's races.
