The stunning performance of the RAAF Hawk 127 lead-in fighter, pictured above, has long been been a highlight of recent Perth Supercars events at Wanneroo Raceway.
The Perth SuperNight, scheduled for Wanneroo Raceway September 11-12, will not be broadcast live on free-to-air television, although it will be available on Foxtel. The Repco Supercars Championship series was officially launched at the iconic Bathurst circuit today, Thursday, ahead of this weekend’s Repco Mount Panorama 500.
The Seven Network has confirmed the six events it has scheduled for live telecasts as part of the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship – the season opening Repco Mount Panorama 500, the Darwin Triple Crown, NTI Townsville SuperSprint, Sydney SuperSprint, Repco Bathurst 1000, Gold Coast 500.
A highlight of the launch was the annual class photo featuring all drivers in their new colours for 2021, followed by a message from AC/DC lead man Brian Johnson to fans. The Aussie Rock Legends song “Realize” was chosen as the track for the season, helping spread the message that Supercars offers fans “much more than you realise”.
Among the drivers on hand was seven-time Champion and the greatest driver in Supercars’ history, Jamie Whincup – who is saying goodbye to full-time driving at the end of this season.
Practice begins tomorrow, Friday, with qualifying for the opening race of 2021 to be run on Saturday afternoon and the second 250km race on Sunday.
