It's both a return and farewell for Supercars across the ditch after the annual trek to New Zealand called off in 2020 and 2021.

That was due to pandemic border restrictions which made the trip to New Zealand unfeasible for Supercars.

With the border now open, the series is set to race on Kiwi soil for the first time since 2019.

It will be also be its final appearance at the iconic Pukekohe circuit, which will cease motor racing early next year so the venue's horse racing facilities can be upgraded.

Pukekohe has been the traditional home of Supercars in New Zealand apart from the handful of years the Hamilton street circuit was used.

There will be three races across the Auckland SuperSprint weekend, with the opener of Saturday followed by a pair of heats on Sunday.

Hometown hero Shane van Gisbergen heads to Pukekohe with a handsome 500-point series lead.
