Supercars has today announced that the fourth round of the 2020 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship will return to Sydney Motorsport Park, with the Winton round postponed due to COVID-19 travel protocols for interstate teams.
The Truck Assist Sydney SuperSprint will take place on the same weekend, July 18-19, will include a night race on the Saturday night, and in great news fans will be allowed into the circuit.
It will mark the first time Sydney Motorsport Park has held a night round under its new permanent lighting fixtures.
The format also includes two races on Sunday, following its successful implementation last weekend.
“Following discussions with all government health authorities on the new interstate restrictions, the practicable solution is to go back to Sydney Motorsport Park later this month,” said Supercars CEO Sean Seamer.
“Sydney Motorsport Park was a logical choice as we have a proven track record of completing a safe event there based on what we achieved last week.
“Following NSW State Government guidance, we are thrilled that we will be able to accommodate fans each day of the July event.
“All personnel at the event successfully maintained social distancing at Sydney Motorsport Park last weekend and will adhere to the same protocols for the event next month.”
Exact details including times, and how many fans will be allowed into the circuit will be confirmed shortly.
