The Covid shuffle may have stopped the Boost NZ wildcard.

Quote
New Zealand motor racing legend Greg Murphy says there's little chance of him driving at this year's Bathurst 1000, despite Supercars yesterday including him on a confirmed list of entrants.

The four-time winner of The Great Race had been looking to pair up with fellow Kiwi Richie Stanaway in a wildcard entry for Boost Mobile Erebus Racing.

However, Murphy says he and Stanaway have struggled to secure MIQ (managed isolation) spots to return to New Zealand and he can't see himself being involved in this year's Bathurst 1000, which takes place on December 5.

"I don't have any ability to get back into New Zealand," Murphy told Stuff.

"I would have pulled out by now, but everyone wants to hang onto the bitter end and get rid of any possible scenario.

I purchased my ticket for Bathurst yesterday, seemed a bit cheap - I got a 4 day pass for $138 from memory

No questions about being vaxxed or anything, which I expected

Think the 6 day pass with pits is about $240.

While it'll hurt the pocket for folk who go as a family entry price really is very good value at $40 a day for 'entertainment'. Where else would you get it that cheap?

Of course, the cost of everything inside the gate is obnoxious but that is another story.

See you up there Trev. I get there Monday night.

were the crowds at SMP required to be Vaccinated?

as for the ticket prices cannot attack SC for it very impressed camping is great value under 300 for the WHOLE week, and got my grandstand ticket upgraded to the whole week at no extra costs [ Tue/Wed] pretty good value for a WEEK worth of fun

Thanks, I suspect the same for Bathurst, I wonder if SC should make some sort of announcement about what's happening at Bathurst? just in case someone has bought tickets and is not fully compliant?

I wonder how they will handle camping and QR codes? I suppose check into campground then check out when you leave the ground and check into the track upon entry and visa versa???

At the 500 in February we had to scan a QR code every time we went through an entry gate. We never checked out when traversing between the top and the bottom.

I assume vaccination checks will also be done at the same time.

Given that any freedoms for the unvaxxed don’t come into effect until December 15, there is no need for Supercars to make any announcement. Unvaxxed people cannot attend

What's the go with the paddock pass? Is it just access to the supports, or will Supercars open up their area?
