The date for Supercars' 2020 visit to Albert Park with the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix has been announced.
Retaining its slot as the F1 season opener and familiar date, the Melbourne event will be held on March 12-15.
Supercars has raced for points at the Grand Prix for the last two years, with the Larry Perkins Trophy on the line across 400km of racing.
“Hosting Melbourne’s 25th Formula 1 race conjures excitement and interest, and as they said back in 1996, ‘Melbourne – what a great place for the race!’,” Australian Grand Prix Corporation CEO, Andrew Westacott, said.
“We’ve got the largest on-track program of any Formula 1 event in the world and combined with the amount and quality of off-track entertainment, there’s something for all and it’s an event that simply must be experienced.
“The date confirmation provides the opportunity for interstate and overseas visitors to plan a lengthy stay in Victoria.”
It is the second piece of the 2020 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship calendar to be locked in, after the season-opening Superloop Adelaide 500 on February 20-23.
The full calendar is expected to be released by the end of the month.
