Supercars fans will be treated to back-to-back Street action with the series confirming Townsville will host succesive rounds later this month and early September.
The NTI Townsville SuperSprint will take place on August 29-30 with the second Townsville event scheduled for September 5-6.
The most recent calender amendment comes after this weekend’s Darwin round was postponed a week amid coronavirus-related border restrictions.
Townsville also becomes the third straight venue to stage a doubleheader, following two rounds at Sydney Motorsport Park and Hidden Valley Raceway.
Supercars also confirmed spectators will be able to attend the event with tickets for both rounds going on sale today with a 10,000 sale limit.
“We’d like to thank the Queensland Government and Townsville City Council for supporting this concept which allows Supercars to race at one of our favourite circuits on back-to-back weekends,” said Supercars CEO Sean Seamer.
“Two weeks of racing in Townsville allows us to maximise exposure and competition during the key northern leg of this year’s championship.
“Supercars would like to thank drivers, officials, team personnel and their families for their continued support of this year’s championship during these times.”
From Townsville, Supercars is meant to visit Sandown in September before post-Bathurst rounds in Perth and Tasmania in November and a finale under lights at Sydney Motorsport Park in December.
However, Sandown will almost certainly be axed considering Melbourne has entered a state of emergency and began a six-week Stage 4 lockdown.
Similarly, more calendar revisions are expected to be made over the coming weeks with Bathurst now set to host the season-finale on October 11.
Supercars are also strongly considering sending its Victorian-based teams home after Townsville but are waiting on approval to cross the New South Wales border. Should this occur it will also allow for the Bathurst 1000 to go ahead on its original date undisturbed.
