The Northern Territory Chief Minister, Adam Giles has today announced that Australia’s largest race category, the Aussie Racing Cars (ARC) will head to Darwin in June 2015 for the V8 Supercars Event.

“I’m excited to announce that Aussie Racing Cars will feature as a support category at next year’s SKYCITY Darwin Triple Crown V8 Supercars event at Hidden Valley from 19-21 June. Darwin will become a round of the 2015 Aussie Racing Cars Super Series. The category offers 7 different body styles to cater to the liking of all tastes: Camaro, Mustang, Euro GT, Toyota, Nissan, Ford and Holden. Aussie Racing Cars are approximately half the size of their full sized counterparts. The 500kg all up weight provides an incredible power to weight ratio that allows the little machine to rocket to a speed of well in excess of 230KPH”. Said Adam Giles, NT Chief Minister.

This marks the second occasion that ARC have joined the V8 Supercars in Darwin for a championship event. Previously ARC have also joined the Australian Superbike Championship at the Hidden Valley circuit.

“The Darwin event in June 2015 will be one of the Premiere events on the ARC calendar. All of our teams and sponsors are super excited about making the trip North – it’s a beautiful part of the world and awesome race track and we can’t wait to let 40 + Aussie Race Cars loose on the Hidden Valley Circuit. Said ARC Category Manager, Brad Ward

“We are in the process of planning the remainder of the ARC calendar however Adam Giles’ announcement today is only the start of what we believe will be the most exciting race calendar ever”

Stay tuned for further details about Aussie Racing Cars full 2015 calendar to be announced in the coming weeks.
