Supercars Championship 2021 to finish with Bathurst 1000 on December 5

This year’s Supercars Championship will finish with the Bathurst 1000 on December 5, after a scheduling conflict on Mount Panorama was resolved.

The race will now be part of a historic six-day motoring festival culminating with the headline race on the Sunday.

Organisers say they are working closely with New South Wales health authorities around COVID-safe measures and Public Health Order requirements.

Supercars CEO Sean Seamer commended all parties for helping organise the “best ever” Great Race.

“I would like to thank the acting Mayor North, Rob Cameron at Repco and John McMellan at ARG (Australian Racing Group) for their collaboration over the past few weeks to put together what might be known as the best ever Repco Bathurst 1000,” Seamer said.

“It’s been a tough year for motorsport fans but we’re confident this is the recipe for the best possible end to the 2021 season.”

ARG Chairman John McMellan said the six-day event would be a great opportunity for fans to get amongst the action. 

“It is very pleasing when everyone has the same goal, which was to make the sport the priority and work collaboratively to deliver something special,” McMellan said.

“We need to acknowledge the role that all of our respective sponsors played in assisting to make this happen which is reflective of their passion for the sport.

“This event will be a great opportunity to grab the family, go camping in the fresh rural air of Bathurst whilst being entertained by a truly dynamic range of motorsport.”
