New V8 Supercars calendar heads to Bathurst twice 

A revised V8 Supercars calendar has been released after the series came to a halt for more than four months due to the coronavirus crisis and national lockdowns. The V8 Supercars will go to Bathurst twice under the new arrangements. The Bathurst 1000 will go ahead as a four-day event in early October as per normal, while the season finale will be held at Mount Panorama in February 2021 as part of the 12-Hour event.
