Supercars has set its schedule for the three-day Bunnings Trade Sydney SuperNight across October 29-31.

Sydney Motorsport Park will host the Repco Supercars Championship’s return to racing later this month after an extended break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the release of the schedule, Supercars has also confirmed its support card.

Fox Sports and online streaming service Kayo will carry live coverage of every on-track session from Friday to Sunday.

Come Saturday, Supercars will have Qualifying for Race 20 at 15:40 AEDT, which will last just 15 minutes.

The Top 10 Shootout will start at 16:40 AEDT with Race 20 getting underway at 19:10 AEDT on Saturday night.
