MEDIA RELEASE/Walkinshaw Andretti United - Photos: supplied Walkinshaw Andretti United have today revealed the livery…
For the second time since the COVID-19 Shutdown the Supercars return to the track, the same track, after the Winton SuperSprint was cancelled the series was forced to run the next round at Sydney Motorsport Park, again, SMP 2.0.
When the change of circuit was announced, it was also promoted as the round that the public would be welcomed back.
Pretty soon Grandstand tickets were on sale, the seating is limited to around 1000 people each day, thats just 25% of the Grandstand seating available, but this is a limit set by the New South Wales Government for social distancing. It was then announced that General Admission along with Park and Watch tickets would go on sale.
What this means is this race meeting is likely to be the smallest crowd ever at a Supercars race event, in fact when the Series had its pre-season test day at SMP in 2018 there would have been a bigger crowd! The spectators this weekend will have no access to the Supercars Paddock.
The teams rushed to moved to Sydney just two weeks ago, and now they are all leaving Sydney on Sunday evening and heading to Queensland as the expected closed down of Sydney and the Northern Territory closing the borders to anyone who has been in the NSW capital in the past 14 days.
AND new this round Supercars have mandated that all persons in the paddock must wear a protective mask.
Once again, we the media have been barred from attending this meeting, so unfortunately we’ll need to use the supplied images as we watch from our own media centre in our own homes! Keep an eye on our pages for updates.
