THE current generation of Dunlop Super2 Series machinery will continue to be run in the category until the end of the 2022 season.
The second-tier class currently features Holden’s VF Commodore, Ford’s FG X Falcon and the Nissan Altima, all cars that are no longer eligible to be run in the Repco Supercars Championship.
With the ‘main game’s impending move to Gen3, there had been question marks over whether the current generation of Supercars – the Holden Commodore ZB and Ford Mustang GT – would be made eligible to race in Super2.
However, Supercars has confirmed that the ZB and Mustang will not be allowed to enter Super2 next year.
“Supercars has informed current Dunlop Super2 Series team owners that the current Model Eligibility and VSDs being run in the 2021 Dunlop Super2 Series, will continue to be run in the Category until the end of 2022,” a brief statement from Supercars said.
While Super2 will remain stable throughout 2022, the Repco Supercars Championship is poised for a mid-year switch.
Teams will start next year with the current Car of the Future-based Commodore ZB and Mustang GT before a mid-year switch that will result in the whole field rolling out brand new Gen3-spec Chevrolet Camaros and Ford Mustangs.
