Following ongoing discussions with NSW and Victorian health authorities over a sharp rise in Covid-19 outbreaks in Victoria, all Victorian team personnel and drivers will relocate to Sydney Motorsport Park ahead of next weekend’s Supercars Sydney SuperSprint before the government lockdown.

The team garages at Sydney Motorsport Park will be opened for use from this evening.

Supercars CEO Sean Seamer said: “Supercars has been closely monitoring the situation in Victoria and teams had been preparing to bring forward travel dates in advance of today’s announcement.

“We appreciate their willingness to play their part, to ensure we protect the health and well being of Supercars and the wider community.

“We remain agile and continue to work with all government stakeholders, relevant medical officials and teams on ensuring we race in a safe and compliant way."

Supercars is working with support categories on viable options for next weekend’s event. No decision has been made in that regard, with information to be released in due course.

Information regarding scheduling and ticketing for the Truck Assist Sydney SuperSprint will be released in coming days.
