Pukekohe Park is the host venue for the 2022 Supercars Championship New Zealand leg.
The circuit has been the traditional home of the annual Kiwi round since 2013, though it hasn’t hosted a race since 2019.
Pukekohe is on the last legs of its current contract to host Supercars. The series is free to move to a different venue from 2023, or, potentially, establish more than one New Zealand round.
Already, the likes of Hampton Downs and Taupo Motorsport Park are considered as possible favourites should Supercars go elsewhere in 2023.
Both venues are owned by Tony Quinn, who has a significant market share in the Red Bull Racing team.
The Pukekohe round is pencilled in for September 10-11.
The series also revealed a full 13-round calendar for next season.
As we already knew before today, Newcastle opens the year in early March.
Sydney Motorsport then closes the season in mid-November.
There is a TBC listed in July, which, according to Supercars, is likely to be at Queensland Raceway but is not certain.
There is no Phillip Island on the calendar, nor is there an event scheduled for Tailem Bend.
Sandown is on the calendar after rumours about possibly being dropped. That round is set to be before the championship comes to New Zealand and is not an endurance round.
Bathurst returns to its traditional early October date.
