Team changes

Triple Eight Race Engineering are the current Teams' Championship leaders.

In February 2020, Holden's parent company General Motors announced it would retire the Holden name by the end of 2020.[43] The Commodore ZB continues to be raced in 2021, albeit with no factory support.[44]

Team Penske sold its majority shareholding in DJR Team Penske at the end of 2020, the team reverting its name to Dick Johnson Racing, which was last used in 2014.[45]

The Grove Group purchased a majority in Kelly Racing, to become Kelly Grove Racing.[46]

Blanchard Racing Team ceased to be a customer of Brad Jones Racing and took its Racing Entitlement Contract (REC) to become a standalone team with an ex-23Red Racing Ford Mustang. To allow it to continue fielding four cars, Brad Jones Racing purchased 23Red Racing's REC that was leased to Tickford Racing in 2020, which saw the latter downsize from four cars to three cars.[47][48]

Driver changes

Dick Johnson Racing is fielding an all new line-up for 2021. Scott McLaughlin is not defending his title, leaving the series to race in the IndyCar Series with Team Penske.[45] This is the first time the champion has not returned to defend his championship since Craig Lowndes did not defend his 1996 title. He will return to drive with the team as an endurance co-driver, subject to Australia relaxing its COVID-19 travel restrictions.[49] Fabian Coulthard moved to Team Sydney. Anton de Pasquale, who moved from Erebus Motorsport,[50] and Will Davison are driving for the team. For Davison, he returned to the team he last raced for full time from 2006 until 2008.

Erebus Motorsport is fielding an all new line-up. David Reynolds and Anton de Pasquale left the team, and were replaced by Super2 drivers Will Brown and Brodie Kostecki.[27][29] Reynolds returned to Kelly Grove Racing, having last raced for the team in 2011, to replace Rick Kelly, who retired from full-time racing at the end of 2020.[9][51]

With Tickford Racing scaling back to three cars, Lee Holdsworth departed the team and Jack Le Brocq moved to the number 5 car. Holdsworth joined Walkinshaw Andretti United as an endurance co-driver with Chaz Mostert.[52]

Garry Jacobson left Matt Stone Racing to join Team Sydney. Zane Goddard and Jake Kostecki, who shared a car for the team in 2020, are both racing for the team in all races.[53]

As a result of Team Sydney signing Fabian Coulthard and Garry Jacobson, Chris Pither and Alex Davison did not return as full-time drivers. Pither joined Brad Jones Racing as an endurance co-driver with Macauley Jones and Davison joined Dick Johnson Racing as a backup endurance co-driver for Scott McLaughlin if he can't return for Bathurst.

Calendar changes

The Adelaide 500 will not appear on the calendar for the first time since 1998, with the South Australian Tourism Commission withdrawing its financial support citing the after-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and dwindling attendances as key factors.[61]

Auckland, Gold Coast, Perth, Tasmania, Melbourne and Winton were due to return to the calendar after they were cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[62]

The season commenced with a sprint round, the Mount Panorama 500, at Mount Panorama after the Bathurst 12 Hour was cancelled due to the ongoing travel restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic.[63] While the season will end at the Gold Coast,[64] changing from two 300km endurance races to two single driver 250km sprint races to become the Gold Coast 500.

Sandown was dropped from the original calendar, however was reinstated after the Melbourne 400 supporting the Australian Grand Prix was postponed.[64] In doing so, Sandown hosted its first sprint round since 2011.

Impact of COVID-19 pandemic

A pre-season test day was planned for all teams at Sydney Motorsport Park. With COVID-19 border closures, this was amended with all Queensland based teams and Team Sydney using Queensland Raceway, while the Victorian teams and Brad Jones Racing used Winton.[65]

The Albert Park round, which was scheduled to be a support category of the Australian Grand Prix, was moved to Sandown Raceway after the Grand Prix was postponed, then later cancelled in July 2021.[66][67]

The Tasmania SuperSprint round was rescheduled from 10–11 April to 17–18 April due to a COVID-19 outbreak in Brisbane.[68]

The Winton SuperSprint round was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak in Melbourne.[60] It was due to be scheduled for July 30 - August 1 but due to an outbreak in Sydney, it is postponed indefinitely.[69] Subsequently its place on the calendar was replaced by the Townsville SuperSprint, replicating the Townsville double header in 2020.[70]

The Sydney SuperNight round was postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions. It was due to be held on August 21–22.[71]

Series changes

Regulation changes

The championship will award five bonus championship points to the driver who sets the fastest lap. These points will only be awarded in the sprint races.[72]

A third tyre type, the Super Soft, is to be used at the Winton and Darwin events where tyre degradation is much lower than other circuits.[73]

Other changes

Repco, who were already the Supercars’ official automotive parts retailer, succeeded Virgin Australia as the title sponsor of the series until 2025.[74]

A new five-year broadcast deal will commence in 2021. Fox Sports are continuing to show all rounds while the Seven Network will take over from Network Ten as the free to air broadcaster, showing six rounds live, including the Bathurst 1000.[75][76]
