    The V8 Supercars have reached their endurance season, and it gets underway with retro round at the Sandown 500. This is The Roar’s ultimate guide to streaming the race online and watching it live on TV.

    While Garth Tander is the defending champion at the Bathurst lead-up event, it’s Scott McLaughlin who is having a breakout season, leading the championship by just 12 points to Jamie Whincup.

    Endurance season can so often be the make or break of a championship win, and so they will have their own battle, but also attempt to hold off Fabian Coulthard, Shane Van Gisbergen and Chaz Mostert who are closing in on points.

    How to watch the race live on TV

    There will be two ways to watch this race on TV. The first of those is through Foxtel, who broadcast every Supercars race, support race and qualifying or practice session throughout the season live.

    Their coverage of Sandown is also comprehensive. On race day, they will be live on Channel 506 from 9am with support races and the Supercars warm-up, before turning their attention to the race at 1:15pm (AEST). They will then stay on air following, through to about 6pm (AEST).

    To view their complete coverage, you will need a valid Foxtel TV subscription.

    If you would prefer to watch the race on free-to-air TV, then you’re in luck. Being a key race, it’s broadcast live on Channel 10, who begin their coverage at 11am (AEST) and finish at 5pm (AEST).
