“Finally the time has come to take the covers off the IRWIN Racing Commodore and get ready to race again in the Supercars Championship,” said Charlie Schwerkolt.
“It was such an eerie feeling at the Australian Grand Prix on Friday the 13th of March only pack up after only a couple of practice sessions and eight weeks later the whole sport has changed with this incredible global situation.
“To see our IRWIN Racing cars back on track at Sydney Motorsport Park will be very exciting for the staff and all our supporters .
“I’d like to thank all of our valued Team 18 staff, partners, members and fans for their incredible support over this challenging period of lockdown. It’s really great to have a date in the calendar for when we are going to hit the track, for the team and for the whole motorsport community.
“Whilst the BP Supercars All Stars ESeries filled a void and provided plenty of entertainment during this time, there’s nothing like the real thing and we can’t wait to head down pit lane and out on track.”
