Border and North East Supercars fans will have to wait a little longer to see their favourite drivers in action with the Winton SuperSprint postponed for a second time this year.
A new date for the event has not yet been confirmed.
"Supercars and the Benalla Auto Club can confirm the Winton SuperSprint proposed for July 31-August 1 will now be moved to a later date in the year," a Supercars statement read.
"Due to current and evolving COVID restrictions it has been determined that a different date will be more suitable for the event to optimise the experience for teams, campers, spectators and officials.
ALSO IN SPORT:
"All other events scheduled on the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship calendar will not be affected by the new date of the Winton SuperSprint.
"Tickets purchased for the event will remain valid for the new running dates, which will be announced soon."
The postponement has created a six-week gap between the Townsville 500 from July 9 to 11 and the Sydney SuperNight set for August 20 to 22.
Winton Motor Raceway hasn't hosted a Supercars event since 2019, but did welcome teams for pre-season testing earlier in the year.
