The Aussie Racing Cars Championship will feature at some of the nation’s biggest motorsport events in its 20th anniversary season in 2019. 

The seven-round season takes in five states/territories, all on the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship bill.   In 2019 Aussie Racing Cars will celebrate 20 years as an official support category to Supercars making it one of the longest standing Supercars support categories in history. 

Supercars CEO Sean Seamer is excited to have ARC on the Supercars Calendar “We’re thrilled to have the Aussie Racing Cars celebrating their 20th anniversary with us next year. For 20 years they’ve been entertaining motorsport fans around the country and we know the fans attending and tuning in to Supercars events next year will enjoy them just as much as they did 20 years ago.”

“2019 is an important year for Aussie Racing Cars.  Operating as a major series for 20 years and as an official Supercars support category for this length of time is unheard of. This achievement is something to be proud of and is testament to the quality of the product and entertainment value of the category.  We are excited to be running 7 rounds exclusively with Supercars in 2019 taking in many of Australia’s premier events”. Said Category Owner, Tony Quinn. 

Aussie Racing Cars kicks off its 2019 campaign at the Adelaide 500, a Supercars Hall of Fame event which itself ticked over the two-decade mark this year.

Round 2 supports the Tasmania SuperSprint, where the unique confines of the historic Symmons Plains Raceway suit the Aussie Racing Cars to a tee.

From there, the series ventures to the opposite end of the country for the Darwin Triple Crown, a weekend which is a favourite among fans and drivers alike.

The midpoint of the season takes place in heartland territory at the Ipswich SuperSprint, where the Aussie Racing Cars this year put on a big show for the Queensland crowd.

Another trip to the new Bend Motorsport Park is on the cards, where the long flowing corners keep drivers on their toes at a world class facility.

 The penultimate round takes place on the glitter strip at the Gold Coast 500, which will see the field thread their way between skyscrapers and speed alongside the ocean.

Finally to Newcastle, where the title will be decided on a rollercoaster of a racetrack nestled between the city’s beaches and working harbour in its historic East End.

With a succession of big events, a diverse mix of driving talent ranging from up-and-comers to fun-loving veterans, and a unique racing package, the 20th season of Aussie Racing Cars is set to be its most exhilarating yet.
