The full 13-event 2022 Repco Supercars Championship draft calendar has been released.

The 13 rounds of racing will be held between March and November, kicking off with the Repco Newcastle 500. Tickets are on sale for the event.

Tickets are also on sale for June's Merlin Darwin Triple Crown.

The Repco Bathurst 1000 will return to its traditional date in the NSW School Holidays of October 6-9.

Sydney Motorsport Park, which recently hosted four consecutive weekends of racing, is set to host the scheduled season finale under lights in November.

The Sydney venue last hosted the Supercars grand finale in 2003 and 2004.

The Newcastle and Surfers Paradise street circuit events will make their long-awaited comebacks, with the Gold Coast returning to its traditional post-Bathurst date.

Perth and New Zealand will also return after COVID-19 restrictions forced changes to the 2020 and 2021 calendars.

Pukekohe will stage the ITM Auckland SuperSprint in September, five months after Perth hosts the second night event in its history.

The Repco Supercars Championship will also return to Albert Park at the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix, and Tailem Bend in July.

Supercars is working closely with Tony Quinn at Queensland Raceway on preparations to return to racing at the Ipswich circuit in the future.

The Dunlop Super2 Series will feature at six events on the calendar: Newcastle, Perth, Townsville, Sandown, Bathurst and Sydney.

Supercars will continue work on 2022 event formats and support categories for each event with full details to be released over coming weeks.

The Gen3 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Ford Mustang GT prototypes, which were launched in Bathurst, will turn exhibition and testing laps at various events throughout 2022.

Supercars CEO Sean Seamer is excited to return racing to venues which had missed out following the challenges presented by COVID-19 in the past two years.

"The 2022 season will follow an unprecedented two years for Supercars in which the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in two revised calendars – a huge achievement given the nature of the sport,” Seamer said.

"It has been fantastic to welcome fans back to events this year, and we will continue to ensure this is done safely and in line with national guidelines as we welcome more fans back in 2022.

"We are very pleased with the interest in Supercars growing continuously through large audiences watching our world-class broadcast and a significant growth of our presence online across the globe.”

The 2022 Repco Supercars Championship will be the first under Supercars' new ownership group Racing Australia Consolidated Enterprises Ltd (RACE).
