Super3 field building ahead of Sydney racing return

THE Dunlop Super3 Series field is on target to field strong numbers to round out the 2021 season in style.

Between 12 to 15 cars are expected for the pair of events that will complete the season, the first at Sydney Motorsport Park and the second at Mount Panorama, Bathurst.

Both rounds will again see the Super3 field run alongside the Super2 grid in a bumper combined field that is set to reach 30 cars.

While some entries are contingent on border restrictions easing in time for either event, a vast majority of key outright and Super3 Cup contenders are all set to contest the pair of events to be held across a three-event stretch.

The two-event swing is set to feature an all Ford Falcon title fight between young stars Nash Morris and Reef McCarthy, who sit first and second in the championship following the first three events of the season.

Both are entered for the final two rounds, with Morris leading McCarthy by just 42 points.

“There’s a lot of energy and excitement amongst the Super3 grid about getting back on track,” long-time Category manager Liam Curkpatrick said.

“There are a lot of people putting in a lot of effort to support the series and make sure they’re on the grid in Sydney, Bathurst or both.

“At this point it looks very likely that we will have at least 13 cars at both events, but with a very good chance of there being more.

“It would be a great result and way to end the year after such a challenging, fragmented season.

“It shows how important Super3 remains to the overall Supercars landscape both as a place for young drivers to learn their craft and for the more experienced, Pro-Am runners to get out and really enjoy driving these cars in a competitive environment.”

A full entry list for the Sydney Motorsport Park event on November 26-28 will be announced in the coming weeks.
