Date confirmed for Supercars round at The Bend

The date for the Supercars Championship round at The Bend next year has been confirmed for May 7-9.

The event will be held as a SuperSprint while the circuit layout is yet to be confirmed.

The Bend was scheduled to host an endurance round this season but the round was cancelled, leaving the circuit management upset.

“We are pleased and proud to welcome Supercars back for what will be the 5th OTR Supersprint at The Bend,” said Sam Shahin, managing director of The Bend.

“Much has changed in the world in 2020 and motorsport is no different.

“I take my hat off to Supercars for the way they’ve navigated a championship under very stressful conditions in 2020.

“I am certain that much of this year’s learnings will form the basis of an exciting 2021 championship and The Bend will stand proud alongside other venues to deliver what promises to be a spectacular season.”

The round at The Bend will be the sole Supercars round in South Australia following the axing of the legendary Adelaide street race.
