Aussie Racing Cars

In the past 19 years the Aussie Racing Cars have visited no fewer than 23 circuits in Australia and New Zealand.  The last two “new” tracks were in New Zealand and are owned by the category’s owner Tony Quinn, Hampton Downs an hour south of Auckland and the amazing Highland Park at Cromwell deep in the South Island. This weekend the Aussie Racing Cars are again on the Supercars undercard and at the brand-new Tailem Bend circuit. The Bend Motorsport Park is the latest edition to the Supercars calendar and when late last year at the Aussie Car’s Gala Dinner it was revelled that the 2018 calendar included this (and at the time unfinished) circuit, it was fair to say the drivers and teams were…

Did you miss any of the Aussie Racing Cars action last weekend from the Winton SuperSprint Supercars event?  We have these for you below. If you’d like to see all the exciting action you can review the photographs here from our Facebook Gallery. Friday Wrap BACK FOR the first time in five years to the rural Victorian circuit, the Aussie Racing Cars turned on a sizzling qualifying session for round three of the Championship Series. Conditions were tricky with a drying track and a dry line apparent as the session progressed – unlike the earlier wet practice session. Therefore, it was no surprise to see several spinners, but no damage resulted. Putting the disappointment of Phillip Island’s round two behind him, Justin Ruggier responded to every challenge thrown…



Its been Five years since the Aussie Racing Cars have raced at Winton and only a small handful of drivers in this year’s championship raced there in 2013, a couple of teams have practiced there this year, but that makes the majority of drivers going in blind. Winton is a unique tight and twisty layout which suits the pocket rockets perfectly.  12 corners and three straights provide plenty of passing opportunities with the infamous turn 1 and 2 providing some serious wheel to wheel action. The track is quite wide as well and we expect to see plenty of overtaking into turns one through four and then again over the back of the circuit for six through nine. The weather will play a part in…

Aussie Racing Cars Round Two Phillip Island – Preview

Aussie racing Cars

The second round of the 2018 Aussie Racing Cars Championship is a real family affair, the class has been known in the past as a family-based racing category with plenty of father son/daughter teams and full family teams running cars but next weekends Phillip Island round will see 6 cars across three families competing against each other. Now in her third season of the pocket rockets Maddy Dunston will line up in her McDonalds Camaro alongside her younger brother Keelan in a similarly livered Commodore, we are sure dad Dale will not know where to look. There is nothing like a Husband and Wife team to get the blood pumping, lets hope they have an extra motel room!  Emma Clark and husband Adam have decided…

Media Moment at Baskerville

As a national category most of our race meetings are at Supercar events and as such time is of the essence, this is mostly due to the television commitments.  Last weekend our first meeting for the 2018 Championship was different in that the Aussie Racing Cars were the headlining act at the Baskerville 60th Anniversary race meeting.  It was 12 years since the cars had been there. What this meant was we had lots and lots of track time, two practice sessions on Thursday, 3 on Friday, qualifying and two races on Saturday and 1 warm up and 2 races on Sunday, it was amazing! On Thursday afternoon before practice we had the opportunity to undertake a media session like no other, what we mean…
