V8 Supercars TV Guide
The 2021 Supercars calendar is set to look a little more normal after the unprecedented coronavirus interruptions in 2020. Racing will return to Perth, Tasmania, Victoria and New Zealand with fans expected at many circuits, although the situation remains fluid. One of the more notable races that isn’t on the initial draft for 2021 is the Adelaide 500.
As well as blue ribbon events like the Bathurst 1000 and the Winton SuperSprint, there will also be races at the Australian GP in Melbourne and the Indy Circuit on the streets of Surfers Paradise – two major absentees in 2020. There will also be a one-off six week rest period during the season between July and August to coincide with the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
When: February 28th – Sunday 5th December (Sydney time)
Where: Australia and New Zealand
The first race of the season is set to take place at the mecca of Australian motorsport, Mount Panorama. There will be two races across the weekend from February 26 – 28. Four time Supercars winner Scott McLaughlin has moved to a full-time drive in IndyCar, so this first race of the season will give us a great idea of who is favourite for the 2021 title.
