Supercars is back with a bang in 2021 at the biggest and best racetrack there is – Mount Panorama, Bathurst and FOX SPORTS will celebrate all week long with Supercars Week before the Live action begins on Foxtel and Kayo from Friday, February 26.
A new event on the calendar for the opening round of the season, the Repco Mt Panorama 500 sees drivers take on the mountain for the opening round of the season over two 250km races on Saturday and Sunday, with Fox Sports the only place to see every session LIVE and Ad-break free during racing in 2021.
The thunderous roar of 24 V8 powered Supercars will take to the mountain when they are on track for the first time on 12.25pm Live on Friday with Shane Van Gisbergen, Cam Waters, Jamie Whincup, Chaz Mostert, David Reynolds and Anton De Pasquale all throwing their hat in the ring to be crowned 2021 Supercars champion.
Fox Sports Supercars Expert commentator and six-time Bathurst 1000 champion, Mark Skaife, said:
“This is the most demanding and unforgiving, yet rewarding, circuit on the calendar bar none and what a way to kick off the 2021 season. With McLaughlin bidding farewell and Whincup signaling his final season it’s time for a new star to emerge, or perhaps the final chance for an old dog to teach some new tricks.
“With some weather surprises forecast I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else than parked up in front of a screen over the weekend for all the Live action on Foxtel and Kayo.”
Hosting Fox Sports coverage will be Jess Yates, alongside commentators Mark Skaife and Neil Crompton. In the pits for expert comments will be Craig Lowndes and Garth Tander who share a combined 11 Bathurst 1000 victories plus much loved technical analyst Mark Larkham breaking down the everything you need to know.
Foxtel and Kayo subscribers will be able to watch the support categories with the Super2, Super3, Touring Car Masters, Toyota 86 and Aussie Race Cars on track across the weekend only on FOX SPORTS.
In 2021 FOX SPORTS is the only place to watch every session of Supercars, Formula 1 and MotoGP Exclusively LIVE and Ad-break free during racing.
