In what could be a thrilling 1000km championship decider, Mount Panorama will again host the V8 grand finale for the second straight year.

The six-day Bathurst event will also feature the Dunlop Super 2 Series, Porsche Carrera Cup, Toyota Gazoo Racing 86 Series, TCR Australia, Touring Car Masters, S5000, GT World Challenge Australia, V8 SuperUtes and Trans Am.

“I would like to thank the acting Mayor North, Rob Cameron at Repco and John McMellan at ARG for their collaboration over the past few weeks to put together what might be known as the best ever Repco Bathurst 1000,” Supercars CEO Sean 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.

“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.”

Queensland will not be left out of the revised calendar, should it be approved, with the Queensland Raceway set to host an October double header that will included a historic night race.

In a Queensland first for Supercars, the Ipswich venue will be lit up by high lumen lights that will be installed around the track known as the paperclip.

The Ipswich double header will replace rounds which were scheduled to be held in Winton and at Phillip Island.

After a lengthy break, Supercars is hoping to return to the track at QR on October 23 and 24. The series has not raced since back-to-back events in Townsville in July.

With hopes New South Wales will start to emerge from lockdown from mid-October, Supercars is also expected to announce a double header at Sydney Motorsport Park in November, which will serve as a prequel to the Bathurst 1000 decider.

It is the second time Supercars has been forced to revise the calendar for the second half of the season due to Covid chaos along the east coast.

The Bathurst 1000 had already been shifted to early November when the series announced its first revised schedule at the end of July, which resulted in a messy battle over dates to race at Mount Panorama with a rival event.
