Supercars Looks To 2022 After Bathurst 1000

Following the close of the Bathurst 1000 and the end of the 2021 Supercars Championship, the 2022 calendar has been released.

The 2022 Championship will take place over 13 rounds from March to November, starting with an opening three-day event in Newcastle.

In line with the announcement, Supercars has named Repco as the official naming rights partner for the opening event, which will be named the Repco Newcastle 500, starting on 4 March.

Discussing the partnership with Repco, who, in recent years has further deepened their connection to Australian motorsport by becoming the naming rights partner of the Supercars Championship itself, as well as the Bathurst 1000, Supercars general manager of commercial, Jamie Black, said Supercars was honoured to enhance its partnership with Repco.

“We’re delighted to see Repco build on the existing relationship with Supercars as they get behind two rounds as naming rights sponsor at two of our marquee events of 2022, Bathurst and Newcastle,” Black said.

“We’re honoured to have the opportunity to further build our partnership with Repco this year and really value the synergies they offer to our sport,” he said.

Throughout the 2022 season, Supercars plans to return to Newcastle, Albert Park, Perth, Winton, Auckland, and the Gold Coast after being required to relocate the events scheduled for these locations in 2021 due to COVID-19.

As part of the 2022 season, Supercars will host events at the Albert Park Street Circuit on 7-10 April in Melbourne in support of the Formula One Australian Grand Prix, which is expected to return to Australia in 2022 for the first time since 2019.

Notably, the Repco Bathurst 1000, which concluded Sunday as the season-ending event for the 2021 calendar, will retake its place on 6-9 October as the third-last event of 2022.

The final event of the 2022 season will be the Beaurepaires Sydney Super600 at Sydney Motorsport Park on 18-20 November.

Supercars CEO, Sean Seamer, said the 2022 Supercars Championship hopes to continue bringing more fans back into live events, following two seasons filled with last-minute disruptions due to COVID-19.

“The 2022 season will follow an unprecedented two years for Supercars in which the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in two revised calendars, a huge achievement given the nature of the sport,” Seamer said.

“It has been fantastic to welcome fans back to events this year, and we will continue to ensure this is done safely and in line with national guidelines as we welcome more fans back in 2022.

“We are very pleased with the interest in Supercars growing continuously through large audiences watching our world-class broadcast and a significant growth of our presence online across the globe,” he said.
