Supercars confirms return of iconic track

Supercars has confirmed the Newcastle street race will open the 2022 season, with the race to be run in the first week of March.

It will be the first time the category has returned to the Hunter region since the 2019 season finale.

Supercars boss Sean Seamer says the race will be run over the weekend of March 4-6.

“We’re thrilled to have locked in our 2022 championship opener as a return to the stunning Newcastle street circuit,” he said.

“The spectacular shots of Supercars racing on the CBD street circuit have become images that are embedded into the minds of tens of millions of motor racing fans around the world.

“Newcastle has established itself as one of the most popular stops on the Supercars calendar with both fans and drivers and we look forward to seeing as many familiar faces as possible trackside in March.”

It will be the sixth consecutive round of the championship to be held in New South Wales, with this season to wrap up with four rounds at Sydney Motorsport Park, before the Bathurst 1000 in December.

New South Wales tourism minister Stuart Ayres says the return of Newcastle to the Supercars championship is a boost for the region.

“The NSW Government is thrilled to support the 2022 championship season opener in Newcastle, reconnecting event goers with the stunning Newcastle coastline and the high-octane action on track, while ensuring local businesses benefit from the economic boost that comes with staging this major event,” he said.

“Newcastle provides a unique backdrop for the event with some of the best beaches in Australia, as well as warm hospitality and a great variety of restaurants, bars and accommodation, making it the place to be next March.”
