It’s a special time of the year in the Repco Supercars Championship, which arrives at the famous Hidden Valley Raceway this weekend for the third instalment of the annual Supercars Indigenous Round.
Already one of the more popular rounds on the Supercars calendar, the betr Darwin Triple Crown’s Indigenous addition has made the round even more special for drivers, teams and fans alike.
From a visual point of view, the cars donning specially designed Indigenous liveries by First-Nation artists is something to behold, with every livery telling a unique story.
However, outside the beautiful and impressive stories of the art is a narrative beginning to take shape of the 2024 title battle heating up.
At this point in time, there are three drivers in contention with Will Brown, leading Triple Eight Racing teammate Broc Feeney, while Chaz Mostert has put himself right in the mix after a big round at last month’s big result at the Bosch Power Perth Supersprint.
Fresh from a brief NASCAR stint in the United States alongside Brown, Cameron Waters will look to continue his red-hot resurgence now that he’s back on Australian soil, and will be hoping to replicate his win and podium in Western Australia to insert himself further into the title conversations. 

But what makes this round so special is that drivers will be vying for the highly difficult Triple Crown, where they will need to produce an almost perfect record across the weekend and do something only twice achieved since its inauguration in 2006.
While the format has taken several alterations over the years, to win the elusive crown this year, drivers will have to claim pole position in Friday’s newly scheduled Qualifying session before winning the two 137-kilometre races across Saturday and Sunday.
Another unique story for fans to keep an eye on this weekend is the special milestone within Dick Johnson Racing, where Supercars stalwart Will Davison will reach a remarkable 250 round starts.
Not only will the main game provide lots of entertainment over the weekend, with the growing title fight and the major milestone the key narratives, but it will also be welcome a solid support card, including Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia, Gulf Western Oils Touring Car Masters, Tyrepower V8 Superute and the Combined Sedans, headlined by the two-car charge from Race Together.
The betr Darwin Triple Crown takes place at Hidden Valley Raceway on 14-16 June.
