Supercars confirms split pre-season testing for 2021 season

The Supercars Championship organisation has confirmed that pre-season testing for the 2021 season will be split due to new border restrictions in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Sydney Motorsport Park was scheduled to host the pre-season test on February 13-14, instead Winton Motor Raceway and Queensland Raceway will host two separate tests.

The Queensland-based teams will test at Queensland Raceway on February 12 while the Victorian-based teams will test at Winton Motor Raceway on February 16.

“It’s a shame we aren’t able to start 2021 with a test together in Sydney next month, but our priority is limiting risk to the championship rounds, so our focus needs to be on the first event at Bathurst later in February,” said Supercars CEO Sean Seamer.

“We look forward to getting back to Sydney for the night race in August.

“Meanwhile, QR and Winton provide teams with great facilities for in-state testing.”
