Dunlop Super2 Series
The Dunlop Super2 Series always has spectators at the edge of their seats with the 2017 season providing a tight open contest up until the last race.
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, Lee Holdsworth, Michael Caruso, Scott McLaughlin, Tim Slade, David Reynolds, Cameron Waters, James Moffatt, Chaz Mostert are all part of the elite group of past Dunlop Super2 Series driver’s now competing in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
2018 will prove to be another stellar year as young talent Todd Hazelwood (2017 DS2 Series Champion), Anton De Pasqualie, Jack LeBrocq and Ritchie Stanaway all advance to take part in the Supercars Championship.
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, AMC, Valliants, Chryslers, AMC 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, new champion Steven Johnson and 2017 challengers Adam Bressington, Ryan Hansford, Jason Gomersall, Eddie Abelnica and more.
TCM contests seven rounds across Australia, all of them running with the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
CAMS Jayco Formula 4 Championship
The next generation of Australian racers will carve a name for themselves in the CAMS Australian 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.
The Sports GT series will race four times across the weekend.
