2023 Supercars Championship calendar announced

The 2023 Supercars Championship calendar has been announced, featuring a total of 12 rounds and the first season of the new Gen3 regulations.

“With the Camaro vs Mustang debut, the return of the Sandown 500 and our marquee event, the Repco Bathurst 1000, celebrating its 60th anniversary, 2023 is shaping as one of the most exciting in the history of our sport,” said Supercars CEO Shane Howard.

“This year we have seen huge crowds return to our events and Adelaide is shaping as a spectacular finale for the Holden Commodore and Ford Mustang rivalry.

“We cannot wait to roll out our Gen3 Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro at Newcastle in March. What an amazing way to start the new chapter of racing for our sport.”

The season will start with a street race in March with the Newcastle 500 and end with the Adelaide 500 street race in November.

New Zealand is not included on the 2023 calendar, but the organisation has confirmed that “there is a focus to return in 2024 and beyond”.

“We are still in progressive talks with our counterparts there for an event in the future, however as they continue it is in the best interest of all parties involved to focus on 2024 and beyond,” said Howard.

“We have every intention to return to New Zealand and we are confident of an announcement in the new year regarding a partnership with a new venue.”
