The Repco Supercars Championship will return to southern Victoria on October 23-24 as part of the revised 2021 calendar, for the Phillip Island SuperSprint.
The two-day three-race event will be the final hit out for teams ahead of this year’s Bathurst 1000.
The event will be the jewel in the crown of the Bass Coast Festival of Motorsport, a three-day celebration of Phillip Island’s rich history of racing on both two-wheels and four, dating back to 1927.
Supercars last raced at the internationally acclaimed Victorian circuit in 2019 and will return along with the Australian Superbikes Championship and Porsche Carrera Cup Series. Other support categories will be confirmed in coming weeks.
Supercars CEO Sean Seamer thanked the Australian Grand Prix Corporation and the Victorian Government for their support of the categories return to one of its most historic circuits.
“We are thrilled to be able to confirm today that we will be returning, with fans, to Phillip Island in October,” Seamer said.
“The Superbikes were extremely popular in Darwin earlier this year and we’re excited to see them with us again for this event.
“We hope to see fans line the circuit in October for what promises to be two action-packed days of racing.”
Erebus Motorsport CEO Barry Ryan is thrilled to be heading back to the Island for the ninth round of the season.
“For me, the best part of the revised calendar is our return to Phillip Island,” Ryan said.
“Phillip Island is one of the best tracks in the world so we’re really looking forward to going back there.”
The event will be broadcast exclusively live on Fox Sports and streamed via Kayo, with highlights on the Seven Network and 7plus from 23 October.
