Following news that Formula 1 is set to remain on 10 for 2021, it has since been confirmed that Supercars will also make an appearance on the network.
“If Supercars are at the 2021 Australian F1 (Grand Prix), then we will definitely be showing them,” a source at ViacomCBS told Speedcafe.com.
“Our understanding is that Support Categories are not yet confirmed for the GP, but we are expecting Supercars to be there.”
It is expected the Supercars event will be a fully fledged championship round, with CEO Sean Seamer stating that the competition would not run ‘exhibition' events.
“I think if we're racing, any race we do, needs to be part of the championship,” he said last month.
“(Given) The cost of going racing, I don't think we'll be doing any exhibition races in the short to medium term.”
Speedcafe.com understands the Australian Grand Prix Corporation, the promoter of the event, holds a contract which states Supercars must hold a championship round at the event.
Neither the 2021 Formula 1 nor Supercars calendars have yet been announced, however the former is expected to release a draft this week.
That date is also poised to kick off the F1 season.
