Dunlop Super2 Series
The Dunlop Super2 Series always has spectators at the edge of their seats! The series remains the core breeding ground for future Supercar stars and can’t go unmissed with past drivers graduating to race in the main game.
Mark Winterbottom, Scott McLaughlin, Lee Holdsworth, Tim Slade, David Reynolds, Cameron Waters, Chaz Mostert, Scott Pye and Nick Percat are all part of the elite group of past Dunlop Super2 Series driver’s now competing in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. In 2018, Scott McLaughlin became the second Super2 Series Champion to go on and win the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, the only other driver achieving this feat being Mark Winterbottom, who won Super2 in 2003 before taking the main game prize in 2015.
In 2019 the Dunlop Super2 Series remains pivotal in shaping the future of motorsport with rising star Macauley Jones advancing to take part in the Supercars Championship. Showing plenty of promise, young talent Jack Le Brocq, James Golding, Todd Hazelwood and Anton De Pasquale will contest their second fulltime Supercars season.

Kumho Super3 Series
The Kumho Super3 Series (formerly known as the Kumho V8 Touring Car Series) provides a competition home for genuine ex-V8 Supercars.
Many of the cars are historically significant race cars with an increasing number running in original livery, and fans can identify with their successes in the hands of some of the sport’s greatest drivers and teams.
The drivers are a mixture of the next ‘up and coming’ stars of the series, to experienced hands who have stepped away from professional driving, and enthusiastic amateurs keen to be involved in the sport. The result of this mixture is highly entertaining racing throughout the field.
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 Super3 Series V8’s are crowd pleasers: Real Holden & Ford racing with an eclectic mix of cars and drivers, and a ‘where have these guys been’ factor!

Touring Car Masters
Touring Car Masters is Australia’s top series for retro Touring Cars from the classic period of muscle car competition between 1964 and 1979.
The series, more 'retro' than 'historic', brings together some of the most iconic brands and models from Muscle Car history and creates a racing series full of unique sounds, sights and an on-track product like no other. There's Ford and Holden, of course, but also classic US-Muscle like Mustang and Camaro, Valliants, Chryslers and even Porsche's.
TCM cars are loud, fast, sideways and exciting. The drivers are heroes and include some of the most famous names in the sport, including Bathurst legends Jim Richards and John Bowe, two-time champion Steven Johnson and regular challengers like Adam Bressington, Ryan Hansford, Jason Gomersall, Marcus Zukanovic and more. TCM contests seven rounds across Australia, a majority of them running with the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
