AUSSIE RACING CARS ROUND 3 WINTON PREVIEW

Winton

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.

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.
