Dunlop Super2 Series and Super3 Series cars will carry the drivers’ names on their windscreens from Round 2 of the season at Winton this weekend.

The move follows the same one made for the Repco Supercars Championship at the start of the 2021 campaign, which is something of an interim measure before LED panels become standard.

It means Super2 fans can read the driver’s surname in the top left corner of the screen (driver right), while the ‘competition number’ (car number) remains in the default position at the top right (driver left).

However, in line with the championship, the windshield competition number will now be 200mm high instead of 150mm.

As before, such numbers will be day yellow in color, except for the series leader, which will be indicated by orange.

That split has become a popular feature of Supercars, with current Super2 Series leader Zak Best specifically referring to the desire to retain the orange numbers on his Tickford Racing Falcon following his recent Winton test.

It is understood that Super3 class entries will continue to be identified as such by wearing an ‘S3’ below the competition number in front of the windscreen.

The Super2 and Super3 entries will be split into the two qualifying sessions this weekend, with 10 minutes each on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

The track activity starts on Friday with two 40-minute practice sessions.

As it stands, the Winton SuperSprint will go ahead as usual, pending the imposition of any further restrictions that might arise as a result of an active COVID-19 cluster in Melbourne.
