THE 2021 Repco Supercars Championship will restart on the last weekend of October to begin a stretch of four consecutive weekends of racing at Sydney Motorsport Park prior to the Repco Bathurst 1000.

Supercars today confirmed the news, with further formats and regulations (including circuit layouts to be used) as well as television broadcast details for each of the dates to be confirmed in upcoming weeks.

It’s expected two of the four SMP rounds will be televised on Channel 7 given the free to air broadcaster has two more events outside of Bathurst left to televise in its six-round broadcast deal for the 2021 season.

It was originally to televised the originally-scheduled Sydney SuperNight event and the now cancelled Gold Coast 500.

The next round of the championship will be at SMP on Friday October 29th to Sunday October 31st with two-day rounds to follow on November 6/7 and November 13/14 before another three-day round on Friday November 19 to Sunday November 21.

Supercars says fans will be welcome at all events and that ticketing details are being prepared and will be announced soon.

It will be the first time in championship history that four rounds have been held in a row at the same venue.

That then leaves one weekend off before the Repco Bathurst 1000, which will be from Tuesday November 30 – Sunday December 5.

The last race held this season prior to the COVID-enforcement stop was on Sunday July 18 in Townsville.
