THE 2021 Repco Supercars Chamionship’s first races since July will be shown live on free-to-air television.
The Bunnings Trade Sydney SuperNight on October 29-31 will be the first championship round held since Townsville’s double-header rounds over three months prior, and it will also be the first of four rounds held on consecutive weekends at Sydney Motorsport Park.
After revealing the race formats for the four events last week, Supercars has revealed the schedule and support categories for the first event and confirmed that Supercars’ three 32-lap sprint races will be shown live on the Seven Network with coverage on both the Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.
‘MERCADORE’: Erebus Mercedes-powered Holden back on track
Seven returned as Supercars’ free-to-air television partner at the start of this year with six rounds of the 2021 season – including the Beaurepaires Sydney SuperNight and Repco Bathurst 1000 – scheduled to be shown live on the network and the remainder as delayed highlights.
Of its live events so far Seven has shown the Mount Panorama 500, Darwin Triple Crown and Townsville 500 live, with the Bunnings Trade Sydney SuperNight effectively replacing the cancelled Gold Coast 500 among the network’s remaining allocation.
Seven’s coverage will begin at 3:30pm AEDT on Saturday and at 12:30pm AEDT on Sunday, while FOX SPORTS and Kayo will deliver their usual comprehensive live and ad-free coverage across Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Supercars’ on-track running will consist of two practice sessions in the afternoon and evening on Friday, qualifying and a Top 10 Shootout on Saturday afternoon for Race 20 that night, followed by back-to-back 10 minute qualifying sessions on Sunday morning for Races 21 and 22 that afternoon.
The support card for the first Sydney event will consist of the Toyota GAZOO Racing Australia 86 Series, V8 SuperUtes, NSW Sports Sedans and NSW Supersports.
Supercars will release ticketing information for the event in coming days.
