Supercars have confirmed the return of Parc Fermé conditions for the BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown event for the first time since Queensland Raceway last year.
All cars following the conclusion of the Top-15 shootout will be put under Parc Fermé until the start of Saturday’s race.
Only the nine entries that do not qualify for Saturday’s shootout will be eligible to make setup changes post the preceeding timed qualifying session
Parc Fermé will only be implemented on the Saturday before an official review will be undertaken to decide whether the rules will be enforced on Sunday.
Commonly seen in Formula 1, Parc Fermé compells teams to make a compromise between qualifying and race setups. The initiative is aimed at making races more unpredictable and entertaining from an audience’s prospective.
Following Darwin’s event, Supercars will conduct a further review to see if Parc Fermé will be implemented into any subsequent rounds.
The BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown is slated for August 8-9 with the series set to make a return to action this weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park for the third round of the 2020 championship.
