It marks a shift away from the 120km (Saturday) and 200km (model) which has largely been in use since 2016.
The SuperSprint name was introduced in 2014, with the Super400 banner to roll out in 2020 at Symmons Plains, Winton, Hidden Valley and Sandown.
The Albert Park event, which will again support the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix, will be known as the International Super400.
The new changes fall into line with household names of marquee events such as the Adelaide 500, Townsville 400, Bathurst 1000, Gold Coast 600 and Newcastle 500.

The SuperNight name will be listed at the Perth, Sydney Motorsport Park and Gold Coast events, with Adelaide, Townsville and Newcastle to continue to be classed as SuperStreet events.
Supercars CEO Sean Seamer highlighted the change to the format, and said the name change is a benefit to fans as they grapple the format changes event to event.
“Super400 reflects the change we’ve made to the sprint format for 2020, to offer a better Saturday experience to our fans,” Seamer said.
“We’ve put a real focus on delivering a better product on Saturdays and believe going to 200km is a win for fans both at the track and watching on television.”
