The 15 round provisional calendar for the 2017 Supercar Series Championship has been released with just two dates left to be fully confirmed.
Firstly, the second round of the season held during the Australian Formula One Grand Prix, as the the FIA have yet to announce their 2017 plans. As soon as this is revealed, the date for round two of the Supercars will be confirmed.
Once again in 2017 the series will travel to every state and territory in Australia with the exception of only the ACT and host some of Australia’s biggest sporting events including the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 from 5-8 October.
Last but not least, the newly announced Newcastle 500, scheduled to take place at the very end of the season, and sometime in November, has yet to have an actual date set due to a possible clash with the World Rally Championship.
“We have also brought the final event in Newcastle forward to November in what we expect will be a massive grand finale to the season,” said Supercars Chief Executive James Warburton. “Our preferred date for the event next year is 17-19 November but this won’t be confirmed until the date of the World Rally Championship is known so as to avoid any clash.”
