Winton round postponed due to new COVID restrictions

This weekend’s Supercars Championship round at Winton Motor Raceway has been postposed due to new COVID restrictions following a surge in cases in the surrounding area.

The round is instead re-scheduled to July 31-August 1st, after the Townsville round.

“Supercars and the Benalla Auto Club have this morning confirmed this weekend’s planned staging of the Winton SuperSprint will be postponed due to the ongoing COVID situation in Victoria,” a statement from the Supercars organisation read.

“The proposed new event dates will be 31 July-1 August 2021. This will be confirmed within the next seven days. While regrettable, today’s decision has been made to ensure the health and safety of all Supercars fans, staff and teams.

“Ticket holders for this weekend’s event can either collect a full refund or hold on to their tickets for the Winton SuperSprint to run on the new dates.

“Supercars and the Benalla Auto Club will continue to ensure that all events are compliant with appropriate State, Territory and Federal regulations.”

The coming round at Hidden Valley Raceway on June 18-20 is confirmed to be held as planned.
