CAMS PAYCE FORMULA 4 CHAMPIONSHIP
The next generation of Australian racers will carve a name for themselves in the CAMS PAYCE Formula 4 Championship. Racing on the same tracks as their Virgin Australia Supercars Championship heroes, it is the first step on the motor racing pathway after karting.
Despite many of the teenage drivers not holding a road licence, they’re more than capable at racing up to 200km/h. The 1.6 litre turbo, modern carbon fibre chassis and sticky Hankook tyres promote close racing and develops critical race craft skills.
Past Australian Formula 4 graduates have stepped up to higher categories in Australia and abroad.

KUHMO TYRE AUSTRALIAN V8 TOURING CAR SERIES
The Kumho Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series provides a competition home for genuine ex-V8 Supercars.

Many of the cars are run by professional teams with considerable experience in the sport, including Brad Jones Racing, Eggleston Motorsport, Matt Stone Racing, Image Racing, MW Motorsport and more.
The Kumho V8s are crowd pleasers: Real Holden & Ford racing with an eclectic mix of cars and drivers, and a ‘where have these guys been’ factor!
