The SuperSprint format will be used for the first time this season, the round to be decided over three 36-lap heats. Those races were set to be run over 38 laps, however Supercars opted to shorten the distance to rule out any fuel range concerns . A tweaked version of the three-part qualifying format, modelled on the Formula 1 system, will also make its debut at Sandown on Saturday. Individual 10-minute sessions will first determine the bottom third of the grid, then the middle, and then the final 10 grid spots. On Sunday there will be two traditional 10-minute, all-in qualifying sessions, each determine the grid for one of the two races.

The Automobile Club de l'Ouest has gone all-in on the new Hypercar regulations, which will finally come on stream in the 2021 FIA World Endurance Championship season. Toyota and Glickenhaus have signed up to be part of the new top class of the WEC and Le Mans 24 Hours from the very beginning, but we will have to wait until 2022 for Peugeot to provide some factory competition for Toyota.
