0

Australian Supercars has released a provisional calendar for the BP Supercars All Stars Eseries. 

The virtual racing series joins F1, Indycar and NASCAR who have all launched online racing series due to the Covid-19 restrictions on travel and mass gatherings.  

A total of 18 tracks are to be used across the Supercars season’s 10 rounds, with Bathurst’s Mount Panorama the only destination set for two visits. 

Phillip Island and Monza had already been confirmed for the season-opener on April 8. 

From there, the Eseries will head to venues used by Formula 1, IndyCar, NASCAR. 

Highlights include a rare double dose of American speedway action for Round 7, at Daytona and Alabama. 

The following round will take drivers to historic Formula 1 layouts Imola and Interlagos, joining the likes of Silverstone, Montreal, Spa and the Nürburgring from earlier on the calendar. 

Brad Jones Racing driver Todd Hazelwood says, “I’m really looking forward to taking our #14 Holden Commodore on some of these international circuits,” Hazelwood said. 

“I’ve never raced on any of the overseas tracks before so it’s going to be really cool to see how the cars handle and how quickly I can learn the tracks. 

“I’m definitely looking forward to Watkins Glen and Nürburgring as I think there’ll be some great battles going on.” 

Legendary Australian circuits feature too, with Oran Park and Mount Panorama to form the finale. 

Race formats for the opening round are expected to be announced in the coming days.
