Going in and out of enforced quarantine when crossing state borders is making the series more trouble than it is worth.
Teams wanting to get back to families in Victoria is not practical. Luckily they had plenty of family time from March to June.
Looks like NT, Qld then Bathurst. Run and done. Ticks the box for last round in NSW. Go out on a high with the main event.
Who knows if next year will be any better ?
They just need to ensure they get the 4 different states which they will with Queensland (Victoria /Albert Park counts as a round because they qualified prior to it being canned) and 10 rounds minimum, to meet Championship criteria requirements.

Then there are Broadcasting contractual requirements to be met.....

You have to give Supercars credit for trying, when everyone else has basically thrown in the towel. Their efforts are extraordinary but surely the teams are burning financial holes in their back pockets pushing on like this?

Or is the broadcasting contract the whole reason for pressing on? It's the only remaining financial lifeline, and the unthinkable may occur if they call in force majeure?

Sad times if Bathurst is the last event of the year but TOTALLY understandable.

Glad I didnt book tickets this year.

My apologies, you are correct it is 6 and not 10. My bad.... I read the article a couple of days ago and am guilty of going on memory when I posted. I think with all the reading I have done during a Melbourne lockdown has fried my brain with an info overload.That and old age!
Thanks for correcting me.

all good
It makes a difference....with only 6, this means the requirements are met by the end of the 2 NT rounds.

The only other must for the series (but perhaps not the awarding of a c'ship title), is the final round needing to be in NSW.

Although with NSW government having closed the Victorian border, the contractual requirement that the final event has to be in NSW is probably debatable. Much like its contract with the NRL that states the grand final has to be held in Sydney, would be hard to enforce if Sydney was in lockdown, but there was the option to play in Brisbane.
