Trackside parking option at Symmons

FANS of Tasmania's largest annual sporting spectacle are being offered some traditional viewing options for this year's action.

The Tasmanian round of the V8 Supercars is a month away and Symmons Plains is gearing up for another action-packed agenda.

The championship kicks off in Adelaide this weekend and, after its customary spot on the Formula 1 schedule in Melbourne, comes to Tasmania on March 28-30 with another 12 rounds to follow.

For the first time since 1998, Tasmania's Supercar fans will have the chance to drive in, park up and settle in at the famous hairpin to watch all the action unfold from the comfort of their own cars.

In a bid to offer more viewing options, fans have the chance to secure limited parking places from halfway up the front straight to the hairpin for one, two or three days at one of the category's quickest circuits.

Prices start from $10 a day up to $50 for three full days.

``This is how motor racing fans used to watch the V8 Supercars here at Symmons Plains and they still do today in other race meetings,'' V8 Supercars director of promoted events Mark Perry said.

Due to popular demand, a grandstand will also be erected near turn two with tickets starting from $170.

The SuperSprint format features two 100km races on the Saturday and a 200km on Sunday and in contrast to the traditional Ford-Holden duopoly, this year's championship will also involve Nissan, Mercedes-Benz AMG and Volvo.
