2017 Supercars Championship Betting & Odds
In the classic Aussie flick The Castle, Dale Kerrigan tells us: ‘If there’s one thing dad loved more than serenity, it was the sound of a two-stroke engine on full throttle’. Well, he was half right. There’s nothing like the sound of 650hp V8 Supercar! It’s as Aussie as wearin’ trakkies. While Americans prefer to see their Nascars going around in circles, we way-out Aussies like our cars going around half circles, or what we like to call ‘corners’. Though what used to be an Aussie-only competition (bar Nissan’s first foray with their monster ‘Godzilla’ in the ’90s) is now international, with a raft of different cars, and races in the UAE, the US and New Zealand.
New rules have opened the championship up to more manufacturers. Nissan has returned with four V8 Altimas, Mercedes-Benz is in with three E63 AMGs, and Volvo has turned out to be lightning fast in building a 5.0-litre V8 Supercar engine (we trust the Swedes weren’t using an IKEA allen key) with two Volvo Polestar Racing S60s on the grid. With all the changes, V8 Supercar odds and V8 Supercar betting is more interesting than ever!
V8 Supercars BBQ Facts
- In 2001, Craig Lowndes switched from Holden to Ford; and in 2010, back to Holden. He hasn’t looked back in V8 Supercars 2014. Except in his... err… rear-view mirror.
- The undisputed ‘King of the Mountain’ is Peter Brock, who won nine Bathurst 1000s at Mt Panorama.
- While a Nascar is more powerful, it’s heavier. V8 driver James Courtney says it’s like ‘wrestling a bear’, with its higher horsepower and carrying a hefty 150kg more than a V8 Supercar.

What happened in the 2013 V8 Supercars?
The most interesting news (apart from new grid girls Amber and Camber) was the introduction of the ‘New Generation V8 Supercar’ – a revision to the regulations to make the series more cost-effective and attractive (like Amber) to new manufacturers.
