THE Gold Coast has landed a big coup and the city will host the 2021 Supercars Championship final.
The 2021 schedule was released today, confirming for the first time in the history of the sport that the championship will end with a spectacular final on the streets of Surfers Paradise.
Tourism Minister and Sports Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said motorsport fans in Queensland were looking forward to a double dose of supercars in 2021.
« In Queensland, the Supercars Championship is a popular celebration of motorsport rivalries, precise driving and excellent vehicle technology, » said Hinchliffe.
“A mid-season event in Townsville and the 2021 Gold Coast finals will deliver a double dose of supercars in Queensland, some of the best setbacks for racing in Australia.
“For motorsport enthusiasts from the south, the Supercars Championship is without hesitation the perfect start to a short vacation in Queensland. ”
« What a classic three-day Mardi Gras with the Gold Coast to host the finale of the supercar season, » said Mayor Tate.
“Only on the Gold Coast will the spectators see the final race for the championship flag. With the pressure on the teams to win the crown, December will be a hell of a weekend racing weekend. ”
The 2021 series begins on 26. until 28. February in the spiritual home of Australian motorsport, Mount Panorama.
The teams will make two trips to Bathurst, with the season opener in February, the Mount Panorama 500 and the Great Race, the 1000 km Repco Bathurst 1000 with 161 laps on the traditional dates from 7. until 10. October.
Racing returns to Perth, Tasmania, Victoria and New Zealand after COVID-19 restrictions forced changes to the 2020 calendar.
Sean Seamer, CEO of Supercars, said the calendar for next year will be a win for fans and viewers alike after the challenges COVID-19 posed in 2020.
« It’s important to us to make sure the 2021 calendar has as much security for fans as we can, given the current COVID-19 restrictions in each state and territory, » Seamer said.
“We are very excited to be able to offer two events on Mount Panorama next year, including the season opener in February.
« We are still working with all government partners on fan limits for each event, but we are confident that in line with the current easing of COVID-19 restrictions in Australia and New Zealand there will be a large number of spectators. ”
