The fourth round of the revised Virgin Australia Supercars Championship will return to Sydney Motorsport Park following confirmation the Winton SuperSprint has been postponed due to COVID-19 travel protocols.
With plenty of bumper to bumper action in the championship, drivers will be keen to make their mark at Round 4 with fans also able to attend the event.
Plans to deliver a part-day, part-night event will throw a further variable into the mix for the named Truck Assist Sydney SuperSprint.
A night race on the Saturday will be followed by a pair of day races on the Sunday.
Supercars CEO Sean Seamer said the decision was made to return to Eastern Creek for a second successive round, after last weekend’s successful return of Supercars.
“Following discussions with all government health authorities on the new interstate restrictions, the practicable solution is to go back to Sydney Motorsport Park next month,” Mr Seamer said.
“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.”
There will be strict measures in place to ensure teams remain in isolated areas to one another at the 18-19 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.”
More information regarding ticketing will be released to the public soon including each day’s limit for attendance.
Fans will be requested to spread out to maintain physical distancing.
Paddock access will be restricted to the racing teams and officials while corporate facilities will remain closed due to COVID-19 safety protocols.
No other events on Supercars’ revised calendar have been amended at this stage, all events remain subject to change based on COVID-19 guidelines and protocols.
With the championship heating up the Truck Assist Sydney SuperSprint, 18 – 19th July 2020, will be an event not to be missed.
