Penrite Racing relocate to NSW
Penrite Racing have packed their bags and temporarily relocated to New South Wales ahead of next weekend's Sydney SuperSprint.
The move comes after the Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, announced the border with New South Wales would be closed to all Victorians from midnight tomorrow.
A statement from Supercars CEO Sean Seamer said: "Supercars has been closely monitoring the situation in Victoria and teams had been preparing to bring forward travel dates in advance of today's announcement.
"We appreciate their willingness to play their part, to ensure we protect the health and wellbeing of Supercars and the wider community.
"We remain agile and continue to work with all government stakeholders, relevant medical officials and teams on ensuring we race in a safe and compliant way."
Essential team members and drivers are now on the move, along with the team's transporter, race cars and equipment.
The team garages at Sydney Motorsport Park will be opened for use from this evening, with teams able to continue preparation ahead of next weekend's event.
Information regarding scheduling and ticketing for the Sydney SuperSprint will be released in coming days.
