Tickford Racing’s Mark Winterbottom and Chaz Mostert teamed up with Supercars legend Russell Ingall to launch Fox Sports’ coverage of the inaugural Red Rooster Sydney SuperNight 300.
To celebrate the return of night racing to Australian soil for the first time in over 20 years, Mostert and Winterbottom upgraded their usual race suits for a glow-in-the-dark version, squaring off in a friendly Supercars racing challenge.
It was a close race, but Winterbottom took home the crown on the night.
The inaugural Red Rooster Sydney SuperNight 300 cranks into gear tomorrow, with every practice, qualifying session and race live, ad break-free and exclusive on Fox Sports, on Foxtel.
The new race format will feature a single 300km race run in a three-hour window from 7.20pm EST on Saturday.
On the return of night racing, Winterbottom said: “It’s great to re-live history 20 years on and do it again. I can’t wait. I think under lights it showcases our sport to the next level and Saturday night in Sydney, under lights, it doesn’t get much better than that.
“Plus 300 points, one race in the evening, it’s a completely different feel. I’m really excited and I can’t wait to get out there.”
Before the action starts there will be a special 90-minute edition of Supercars Trackside, live from Sydney Motorsport Park at 4.30pm tomorrow.
