The Repco Supercars Championship has released the schedule for its 2023 season with 12 events to make up the calendar.
 
In what will mark the first season of the new Gen3 era, the Championship will make its way to seven Australian states and territories, with a round to take place in every month between March and November.
 
Starting off with the already confirmed Thrifty Newcastle 500 in March, the first half of the season will include Beaurepaires Melbourne 400 at the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix, the Perth SuperSprint, the NED Whisky Tasmania SuperSprint and the popular Darwin Triple Crown, which will once again celebrate Indigenous Round in June.
 
July will mark a busy period for Supercars with Townsville back in the Winter school holiday period after a highly successful event in 2022, while the sole night race for the year will take place at Sydney Motorsport Park at the end of the month.

Following Sydney will be the OTR Supersprint and the Penrite Oil Sandown 500 before attention turns to the biggest event on the calendar, the famous Bathurst 1000,
 
Celebrating its 60th anniversary, the iconic event will once again be in its traditional slot in October and will be one of two endurance races held across the year.
 
Like this year, the championship will wrap up with two fan favourite events – the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 at the end of October and the VALO Adelaide 500 on the final weekend of November.
 
With Winton and Queensland Raceway both missing out on making next year’s calendar, both circuits will be used for testing in January where fans are able to see the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro in action.
 
While all events will be broadcast live via Fox Sports and Kayo, the Seven Network will be showing Newcastle, Darwin, Townsville, Bathurst, Gold Coast and Adelaide rounds live and free.
 
Supercars CEO Shane Howard was pleased with the calendar and was looking forward to a big year introducing the new cars.
 
"With the Camaro vs Mustang debut, the return of the Sandown 500 and our the marquee event, the Repco Bathurst 1000, celebrating its 60th anniversary, 2023 is shaping as one of the most exciting in the history of our sport,” Howard said.
 
“This year we have seen huge crowds return to our events and Adelaide is shaping as a spectacular finale for the Holden Commodore and Ford Mustang rivalry.
 
“We cannot wait to rollout out our Gen3 Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro at Newcastle in March. What an amazing way to start the new chapter of racing for our sport.”
