The Bend is the latest venue to announce its place on the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship fixture.

The Tailem Bend circuit will host a SuperSprint event on May 7-9, which will mark the category’s only visit to South Australia in 2021 following the cancellation of the Adelaide 500.

Although race formats and the circuit layout have not been announced, the Bend event has been confirmed as a SuperSprint, sponsored by OTR.

The circuit held two SuperSprints during September in the pandemic-impacted 2020 season, one on the International layout and the other on the shorter West version.

The Bend had originally been scheduled to host a 500km PIRTEK Enduro Cup round in 2020, before COVID-19 forced a series of calendar reshuffles.

Sam Shahin, Managing Director of The Bend said he is looking forward to Supercars returning in May.

“We are pleased and proud to welcome Supercars back for what will be the 5th OTR Supersprint at The Bend,” Shahin said.

“Much has changed in the world in 2020 and motorsport is no different. 

“I take my hat off to Supercars for the way they’ve navigated a championship under very stressful conditions in 2020. 

“I am certain that much of this year’s learnings will form the basis of an exciting 2021 championship and The Bend will stand proud alongside other venues to deliver what promises to be a spectacular season.”

Tickets for the event are now on sale, with General Admission ticket prices start at $20 for adults on Friday, then weekend General Admission is $90 or three-day passes $100.

For the first time, kids aged 15 and under will be able to attend for free, previously it was 12 and under.  

Trackside camping options will go on sale on December 15 and will offer a unique atmosphere for the family-friendly event. 

Park n View will also be available at both the northern and southern ends of the circuit, while the onsite BIG4 holiday park will too be in operation.

Accommodation in the hotel is by wait-list only, with priority given to previous customers.

Most ticket types are now on sale through Ticketek and via The Bend’s website.
