SUPERCARS CALENDAR CLARITY COMING

HOW the first Repco Supercars Championship calendar of the Gen3 era looks should be clear within weeks.

In recent days speculation has gone into overdrive as to what events might or might not make the cut for 2023.

Supercars CEO Shane Howard has confirmed to V8 Sleuth the schedule will either be 12 or 13 rounds.

Furthermore, he declared the plan is to have a full reveal by the Repco Bathurst 1000 on October 6-9.

“Our aim absolutely is to have the calendar finalised and for public release on the lead-in to Bathurst or before, if we can,” he said.

There are 13 stops on the 2022 calendar, with Adelaide, Gold Coast, New Zealand, Winton, Perth and Albert Park all featuring for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

Newcastle is due to return in March next year too and Tony Quinn’s heavily upgraded Queensland Raceway could also be a chance, making for a logjam.

What is known is that the Gen3 Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro’s first race is to take place at Newcastle, with Round 2 coming at Albert Park in support of the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix, and Adelaide locked in as the Supercars Championship’s long-term finale.
