A new era for the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship begins this week, when the season-opening Adelaide 500 shifts into gear on Fox Sports, on Foxtel.

For the first time, fans will be able to enjoy every practice, qualifying session and race from every event – including the iconic Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 – live, ad break-free and in HD on Fox Sports.

A brand new show will feature in Fox Sports’ lineup in 2018, with Supercars Trackside premiering at 7.30pm EDT on Thursday (March 1).

Broadcast from the track at each race, the show will set the agenda on Thursday nights, before dissecting the action every Sunday after the race.

Fox Sports’ Jess Yates, Mark Skaife and Russell Ingall return to host the 60-minute programs alongside Supercars experts Neil Crompton and Greg Murphy, and technical analyst Mark Larkham.

Chris Stubbs and Riana Crehan will keep fans up to date with the latest and breaking news from Pit Lane.

All-new race graphics will feature in Fox Sports’ unrivalled broadcast in 2018, including an enhanced leader board that will allow fans to track their favourite drivers and teams.

Fox Sports’ coverage of the Adelaide 500 kicks off at 10.30am EDT on Thursday March 1, and continues across the weekend, with all practice and qualifying sessions, plus both 250km races live, ad break-free and in HD.

With Foxtel’s new streaming service, Foxtel Now, fans can get instant access and be signed up and streaming all the action live within minutes. To try two weeks for free, go to
