IT'S take two for the Bathurst International after the Australian Racing Group confirmed the preliminary racing calendar for the 2021 TCR Australia Series and National Trans Am Series.
After a frustrating 2020 season where coronavirus-induced border controls prevented planned events from occurring, TCR Australia and the new Trans Am Series class are gearing up for a breakout 2021 season, including visits to four states, six championship events and the grandest of finales at Mount Panorama for the inaugural Bathurst International.
The TCR and Trans Am seasons will start in Tasmania as part of the new 'Race Tasmania' festival. Round one at Symmons Plains Raceway will be run over three days, starting on Sunday and concluding on Australia Day.
Round two for TCR and Trans Am will be held at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit in February, followed by round three at the Bathurst 6 Hour support card on the Easter weekend.
Round four will be at Sydney Motorsport Park on the first weekend of May and June will see the categories head north to Morgan Park Raceway in the country town of Warwick.
The final points-paying round will be at Sandown on September 10-12, where the series champion for 2021 will be crowned.
The last event for the year will be at the Bathurst International in November or December, with a date to be announced.
