18 June 2022

Supercars has confirmed the Penrite Oil Sandown SuperSprint and ITM Auckland SuperSprint will go ahead in the 2022 Repco Supercars Championship as originally announced in the season calendar.

The confirmation ensures Supercars will race internationally for the first time since 2019, at Pukekohe Park Raceway.

It also means Sandown will host its 52nd championship event, the most of any circuit in Australian Touring Car Championship/Supercars history.

The Penrite Oil Sandown SuperSprint will run from 19-21 August, followed by the ITM Auckland SuperSprint from 9-11 September.

“We understand there has obviously been a lot of rumours about these events, which is why we are happy to put them to rest today and move forward with planning,” said Supercars CEO Shane Howard.

“I would like to thank Tātaki Auckland Unlimited for their ongoing and unwavering support for the ITM Auckland SuperSprint.

“Getting to New Zealand in 2022 was one of our key objectives and even with international freight challenges, we have a plan in place that will ensure our passionate kiwi fans get to see the best touring car category in the world back at Pukekohe.

“We’d also like to thank the Melbourne Racing Club who host the Sandown event. We can’t wait to write another chapter into Sandown’s proud history of racing.”

The Penrite Oil Sandown SuperSprint will include the Dunlop Super2 and Super3 Series, Porsche Carrera Cup, Toyota Gazoo Racing 86 Series and Aussie Racing Car Series on its support card.

The ITM Auckland SuperSprint will feature the Toyota Gazoo Racing 86 Series, Central Muscle Cars, Historics and Formula Ford.
