Today?s announcement that the Sydney 400 will be held in December has finalised the 2009 V8 Supercar calendar.

The inaugural race around the streets of the former Olympic precinct will be the Grand Finale of the 2009 series on the weekend of December 4-6.

This means the action-packed 2009 V8 Supercar Championship will be book-ended by street races, with the traditional season opener, the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, taking place on March 19-22.

The following weekend will see the V8s take to another street race around Melbourne?s Albert Park for the non-championship Australian Formula One Grand Prix support races.

The V8 circus will then head across ?The Ditch? for its second race around the streets of Hamilton, New Zealand in April.

The series will then come back to Victoria at the country circuit of Winton in early May before heading south for Symmons Plains, Tasmania later that month.

The V8 show will then travel to Darwin in June, far-north Queensland for the inaugural Townsville street race in July, Melbourne?s Sandown in early August and back up to Queensland Raceway, Ipswich in mid-August.

The endurance races of Phillip Island, in September, and Bathurst, in its traditional timeslot in early October, will follow.

The final four rounds will be Surfers Paradise in late October, Bahrain in early November, while the Barbagallo round at Perth moves to a late November date, with the Sydney 400 closing the season.

A little surprised that QR is still on the calander, I was told that Tetly no longer wanted the round as VESA wanted everything at the circut upgraded and Tetly said it wasn't worth the effort as he makes more money from Club events than the V8's.

Interesting also that VIC have 4 events, QLD have 3, NSW 2, NT, SA, WA & Tas 1 and 2 overseas events.
