The idea for V8SCGlobal was borne out of a frustration at the lack of exposure for Australian Supercars on UK-based motorsport websites. There is no more competitive and exciting touring car category anywhere in the world, but bar race reports and the occasional news story which cater only to those familiar with the Series, it received little coverage here.
With the Series’ organisers making no bones about wanting to promote the sport around the world and create an internationally recognised brand, when we set up the site in 2012 we felt the time was right to create a fan site outside Australia showcasing V8 Supercars to a new audience and to develop links with existing fans who want to follow the Series in the UK, Europe and the US.
Most people have heard about the Supercars Championship, but despite this they know little about it. However, there is a definite desire amongst motorsport fans here in the Northern Hemisphere and beyond to know more… V8SCGlobal.com aims to fill that gap.
We believe there is still room for another Supercars site, especially a hub for information on the sport.
Driven by fans from across the world, our team is working flat-out to bring you lots more fresh and informative content in 2017 and beyond to show just what makes Supercars so special.
Thank you all for your support to date, and keep your eyes on the site and all our various social media places for more soon.
V8SCGlobal.com is an unofficial Supercars fan website. It is not affiliated with the Official Supercars, or any of its respective teams or franchises – We just want to share our passion for the world’s leading touring car Championship and some of the most exciting series of races you’ll ever see.
