The Supercars Collective – why another Supercars website?
The idea for The Supercars Collective was originally borne out of a frustration at the lack of exposure for Australian Supercars on UK-based motorsport websites. There is no more competitive nor 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.
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 (known then as V8SCGlobal) we felt the time was right to create a fan site outside Australia. We wanted to showcase 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 USA.
Most people had heard about the Supercars Championship, but despite this they knew very little about it. However, there was, and still is a definite desire amongst motorsport fans here in the Northern Hemisphere and beyond to know more… The Supercars Collective.com aims to fill that gap. We can’t do much about the lack of coverage on other websites or on television, but we believe there is still room for another Supercars site, especially a hub for information on the sport.
What’s different about The Supercars Collective website?
While you will still find a great mix of Supercars news and views, The Supercars Collective strives to present everything you need to know about the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship in one great resource.
Driven by fans from across the world for fans across the world, our team is working flat-out to bring you lots more fresh and informative content in 2018 and beyond to show just what makes Supercars so special. We’re always adding new content to help you stay on top of any changes to the Series.
And you don’t have to scroll through masses of articles or run loads of searches to find what you want. Just check out the Inside Supercars page. And if you can’t find something out or want to know more about something in particular, contact us and we’ll see what we can do. If we don’t know, we’ll endeavour to find out for you. There are some great people and other top websites and publications out there such as V8 Sleuth, Speedcafe, Auto Action, V8X Magazine, and of course the official Supercars website too!
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.
The Supercars Collective 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.
