Bunnings Trade has taken official naming rights to the first Sydney Motorsport Park event on the revised 2021 calendar.

It was announced last week that the Eastern Creek venue will stage four back-to-back weekends of racing.

The first event, the Bunnings Trade Sydney SuperNight, will play host to a trio of sprint races.

Two of the races will be held under lights, marking the first night racing since 2020.

Bunnings Trade announced an expanded partnership with Supercars for 2021 and 2022 in February.

The new deal featured the popular Bunnings Trade PowerPass Power Play, which is seen on Supercars' award-winning broadcast and digital platforms.

It also included naming rights to the Supercars' widely popular Tipping competition that offers a variety of prizes for fans, headlined by a $1000 Bunnings Gift Card and 2022 Supercars event ticketing and experience package for the overall winner.

"Bunnings Trade is thrilled to support Supercars highly anticipated return to racing with the Bunnings Trade Sydney Super Night," Penny Gray, Head of Bunnings Trade Solutions said.

"Our team and PowerPass customers are passionate racing fans, and we know the wait will have been worth it with a show-stopping first event back at the Sydney Motorsport Park."

Supercars CEO Sean Seamer added: "I’d like to thank Bunnings Trade for coming on board as the naming rights partner of our spectacular return, under lights at Sydney Motorsport Park from 29-31 October.

"This event is significant for our category and our sponsors. Fans around the world will be tuning in to see our return to racing.

"Bunnings Trade has been an extremely flexible partner of Supercars throughout 2021 and we are thrilled that as an industry leader, they are continuing to support our sport as the naming rights partner of this event."

The Bunnings Trade Sydney SuperNight will be run at Sydney Motorsport Park over three days.

Action will commence on Friday October 29, which will feature a night practice session.

There will be an ARMOR ALL Top Ten Shootout and race under lights on Saturday, followed by two races on Sunday.

Shane van Gisbergen leads the 2021 standings by 276 points over Red Bull Ampol Racing teammate Jamie Whincup.

Fans will be welcome at all events. Ticketing, support categories and broadcast information for the event will be announced in the coming days.
