V8 Supercars Betting Offers - 2013

The V8 Supercars tour is a favourite among Australia’s racing fans and has evolved into a must bet on sport thanks to the V8 Supercars betting offers that bookies give away.

V8 Supercar racing annually pits Australia’s two most popular manufacturers, Ford and Holden, in a racing schedule that stretches from the end of February to the start of December.

The V8 Supercars 2013 season kicks off with the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide from February 29 to March 3 and provides several betting opportunities for motor racing fans keen to claim the free bets that bookies offer new members.

Feature races on the V8 Supercars schedule for 2013 include the tour’s premier race, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 from October 10-13, an event that tests the endurance of drivers and cars alike.

The Sandown 500, an endurance test second only to the Bathurst 1000 takes place from September 13- 15 and the season climaxes with the Sydney Telstra 500 from November 29-December 1.

The V8 Supercars racing schedule is set to expand beyond Australia in 2013, with online bookies set to offer plenty of free sports betting opportunities for Supercar fans.

The tour will also come to New Zealand for the first time in 2013 with the inaugural ITM 400 Auckland from April 12-14. The V8 Supercars tour will also make its first-ever appearance in the United States this year from May 17-19 with the Circuit of the Americas’ Texas 400.

Sports betting fans and bookies alike will have new makes of cars to consider when deciding how best to use the free bet offers that online bookies offer as the Clipsal 500 will mark the debut of Nissan and AMG-Mercedes entries.

These are both products of the Car of the Future program, started with the intention of bringing in other carmakers to the V8 Supercars tour.

Both these and the new venues will provide challenges for bookies and Supercar racing fans alike as they sort out the impact that New Zealand and Texas, as well as Nissan and Mercedes, will have on the V8 Supercars Championship for 2013.

There's usually a wide variety of betting offers available with betting on the drivers championship one of the most common. Online bookies should once again see plenty of action surrounding perennial contender Jamie Whincup.

The 2012 champ has finished 1st or 2nd in the driver standings the last five seasons and has claimed a total of four driving championships. Other top contenders include Whincup’s TeamVodafone teammate Craig Lowndes and last year’s 3rd place finisher Mark Winterbottom.

The Orrcon Steel FPR Ford team driver also earned 2nd place honours in 2008 and is definitely one to watch.

There are also heaps of V8 Supercars betting offers beyond the race for driving champion. The latest Bookmaker.com.au free bet lets fans place a risk free bet up to $200 on individual race winners as well as head-to-head wagers on Ford versus Holden.

Bookies offer other free bets during the V8 Supercar season, such as qualifying winners and Top 10 Shootout finishers, which determines the lineup for the first five rows on race day.

There are also more exotic betting offers available at some of the best Australian bookies, including fastest lap and over/under bets on the total number of driver wins in the V8 Supercars season.

While there are a wide variety of betting offers on the table, there are number of factors that V8 Supercars fans should consider before using free bets. Consider a driver’s strengths on certain tracks. For instance, Whincup is a four-time winner of the Bathurst 1000.

Perhaps most importantly, betting on V8 Supercars markets should be done with the head, not the heart. Just remember, loyalty to a driver or carmaker doesn’t guarantee a winning bet.
