Bathurst to round out the season


The final event of the Supercars season will be the Bathurst 1000, organisers have confirmed.

Mount Panorama will host sixdays of on-track entertainm­ent and racing from November 30 through until the Great Race on Sunday, December 5.

All categories are expected to challenge the mountain with the Supercars Championsh­ip, Super 2 Series, Porsche Carrera Cup and many others seeing off the season after a COVID-19 impacted calendar.

Swathes of fans are expected to descend on Bathurst with Supercars and Australian Racing Group working closely with NSW health authoritie­s around COVID-safe measures and public health order requiremen­ts, to ensure the safety of all staff and patrons attending the event.

Organisers say discussion­s are ongoing with the four other events that are due to feature on the calendar prior to the Bathurst 1000.

Supercars chief executive Sean Seamer says the historic six-day event could result in the best Bathurst 1000 in history.

‘‘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,’’ Seamer said.

An announceme­nt on the other four Supercars rounds for this year is expected to be made later this week.
