As first reported by, Supercars’ flagship event remains under a cloud due to the existence of an exclusive use period for the Challenge Bathurst event which includes the Bathurst 1000’s would-be new date of November 4-7.

It is now understood that discussions have been ongoing in the background about a solution which would please all parties, including retention of the aforementioned date for the Great Race.

As yet, however, sources have stated that no final agreement has been reached.
