Supercars has confirmed that BP Ultimate will take over the naming rights to the penultimate event in Sydney Motorsport Park’s double header.

The oil giant is the latest sponsor to be confirmed for the Repco Supercars Championships return to racing.

Bunnings Trade, Armor All, BP Ultimate and Beaurepaires will back the four events.

To coincide with the news that BP will support the third round of the Sydney turn on 13-14. November, Supercars has announced that the weekend will be a designated family event.

Special family discounts are offered on tickets, and family prizes will also be given away on Supercars’ various social media pages prior to the event.

“BP is pleased to take over the naming rights to Supercars’ family round, BP Ultimate Sydney SuperSprint,” said Leigh Taylor, General Manager, Brand and Communications, AsPac, BP.

“The event provides BP with an exciting opportunity to help engage all the passionate racing fans around Australia who have been patiently waiting for racing on the track to begin again.”

Supercars general manager, commercial, Jamie Black said: “We are delighted that BP has extended its partnership with Supercars and will be a naming partner for the BP Ultimate Sydney SuperSprint.

“This event is important for our category and our sponsors. Fans around the world will tune in to see our return to racing.

“Having an industry leader on board is good news to continue to support our sport as a naming partner for this event.”

The two-day event is the only round in the four-turf that does not want a night race.

Supercars will participate in three 125km races and will be supported by the V8 SuperUtes and NSW Improved Production Series.

Foxtel and online streaming service Kayo will carry live coverage of the third event with Seven Network to carry highlights after the race.
