Bunnings Trade Sydney SuperNight 2021 Supercars Race 20, 21 and 22

The first of four back to back race meetings at Sydney Motorsport Park.

Fortunately Sydney Motorsport Park is blessed with several different circuit layouts to keep up the interest among drivers, spectators and TV viewers across the four weekends.

Unfortunately drivers, spectators and TV viewers won't be so blessed.

However it is great to have Supercars back.

Who will win?

I have seen some ads on 7 about supercars but they never said the date or if it will be on free to air tv . I presumed they tease us with ads but its on fox . Just saw an ad which actually said when and where the event is and lo and behold it is on free to air tv .
Hope the corporates aren't missing out on a new porsche or beach house on our behalf .
Btcc runs fine with 3 people in charge . When do we remove these corporate bloodsuckers ?

Eastern Creek has always had poor attendance figures.

It was billed as a SuperNight but it didn’t get really dark until halfway through the race and it was over in no time….

Maybe they should have run all the races on Saturday to ensure the whole crowd is there for the night race instead of having the main day of racing on the Sunday ?

Getting out of the place afterwards was definitely not fun and it shows exactly how far domestic motor racing live audience participation has fallen. I don't know if the lack of live spectators is a problem, they all sit at home in comfort and watch it on the TV which we had but it was pretty damn poor.

I'm certain the audio guy in the truck ramps up the volume when the cars are revving up on the grid for the start of the race.

I cant resist, what made you take the considerable trouble to write that totally inane comment.

Team Erebus boys certainly impressed, hopefully Will “WD-40” Brown and Master Kosteki can keep that form up for the rest of the year!

Anton has certainly come out firing on cylinders.

The selling point was that they could complete their tv contractural obligations without having to worry about border restrictions.Collect $30million and pass go.
I was out there for the 3 days.Did a quick head count in the grandstand just before the 1st Sunday race.Around 60 people in the whole grandstand.
The next 2 weekends will be less I would guess.

Boy haven't they - I have to give it up, I was wrong, 2 rookies and both are very fast. Both were impetuous and overdrove, but boy they were fast and it didn't look like the pressure of a one lap run with changeable conditions got to them. I really do think Brodie is the real deal, and has led the direction of set up, and considering the relative resources and experience, Erebus is in fine form.

Didn't he what - smashed the whole field including Will by half a second both days.

Funny I don't hear any bleating about parity - despite this being an exact role reversal of Shane smashing people earlier in the year.

DJRTP have REALLY got it right, and Anton is flying. Both Anton and Will had potential to put a much better result in the books. You only have to see Cam Waters troubles to know how close this competition is now, with ~1 sec covering 2nd-18th at one point. Anton's performance was a cut above, but the rest are all so close together - it is just down to the individual team & driver. The way it should be.

I thought it was a great weekend's racing, the first corner racing was WILD but everyone got through OK - definitely a few close shaves though.

I'm loving the young blood up the front - these guys are all very likeable and talented. Jamie I think has chosen his time to retire perfectly.

Agree with the first part, absolutely.
Would be a nice option on this forum to Thank a post, when it contains good info.

@ Mixer
Really enjoying the 2 Erebus drivers form also. Can only see things improving - well done to them.
Right time for Whincup, almost feels like he is already wearing more than one hat (helmet) at the team....maybe due to Covid impact.

I am interested to see the progression of teams when rolling out week after week at the same track.
