The Supercars Darwin Triple Crown event will mark a special trophy round for Aussie Racing Cars this June, being a late addition to the event calendar this year, the Drive the NT Aussie Race Cars Challenge event comes off the heels of the third round just a week or so ago at Winton Motor Raceway, the class will be going from an extremely cold climate to a more summery climate in the Top End.
This event will make the Pocket Rockets the most travelled racing class in Australia, north and south that is, the first event was in the deep south at Baskerville Raceway in Hobart and now up to the top of the Northern territory.
Due to the late addition of the event to the 2018 calendar, championship management have designated this a non point score event however the trophy round is expected to be hotly contested with a number of special drivers joining for the special event.
United States Racer, Bill Hynes will join the series once again. Hynes has been a regular in the Stadium Super Trucks, but had a taste of the Aussie Cars in 2017 at the Adelaide 500 – Joining Hynes is Supercar driver and former Bathurst winner, Paul Morris who was a regular in the series and multiple ARC round winner over the past 10 or so years. Morris loves the cars and the close action and always puts on a show! Morris and Hynes will be racing Sean Rose Motorsport prepared cars.
Most of the class have had limited running at the amazing Darwin circuit, but one driver can drive the place with a blindfold on, current Dunlop Super2 driver and Enduro hopeful with Bryce Fullwood is set to make his debut in an Aussie Car at this round.
