Supercars unveils 2022 calendar

Supercars has unveiled a 13-round calendar for the 2022 season that starts in Newcastle and ends in Sydney.

As revealed by Motorsport.com the calendar will grow next year from 12 to 13 rounds.

As it stands 12 of those rounds are locked in while one, on the last weekend of July, is listed as TBC.

That's expected to eventually be filled by The Bend Motorsport Park.

The season will be book-ended by events in New South Wales, with the already-confirmed Newcastle 500 to open proceedings on March 4-6.

Sydney Motorsport Park will then host the finale under lights on November 18-20, with the format currently listed without clarity as a 'Super600' event. 

After Newcastle the series will travel to Tasmania (March 26-27) before the Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park on April 7-10.

Wanneroo Raceway in Perth will then host a night event on the April 30-May 1 weekend before the Winton event on May 20-22.

The Northern Swing will include the already-confirmed Darwin Triple Crown on June 17-19 followed by the Townsville 500 on July 8-10, likely to be only the second refuelling round of the year.

There is no long winter break, with the action continuing with the TBC/The Bend event on July 30-31 followed by Sandown on August 19-21 and a trip across the Tasman to Pukekohe on September 10-11.

The Bathurst 1000 – once again the only two-driver endurance race on the schedule – moves back to its traditional early October slot (October 6-9) with the Gold Coast 500 three weeks later.

The season then concludes with the Sydney SuperNight.

Super2 will head the undercard for six events – Newcastle, Perth, Townsville, Sandown, Bathurst and Sydney.

“The 2022 season will follow an unprecedented two years for Supercars in which the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in two revised calendars – a huge achievement given the nature of the sport,” said Supercars CEO Sean Seamer.

“It has been fantastic to welcome fans back to events this year, and we will continue to ensure this is done safely and in line with national guidelines as we welcome more fans back in 2022.

“We are very pleased with the interest in Supercars growing continuously through large audiences watching our world-class broadcast and a significant growth of our presence online across the globe."
