Following the cancellation of the 2020 Aussie Race Cars Championship in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic the category is proud to confirm that the 22nd Edition of the Championship will commence at Australia’s most iconic race track, Mount Panorama Bathurst as part of Supercars Mt Panorama 500 event.
Bookended by the two biggest and best events on the 2021 Australian Motorsport calendar and taking in events in 4 states with full television coverage of all events, the 2021 series is expected to be the biggest yet.
The category will also visit 2 tracks that haven’t been part of the series for several years with the addition of the Motorsport Australia Nationals events at Sandown International Raceway and Morgan Park Raceway, both circuits haven’t formed part of the series for more than a decade.
The final round is the series’ home event and arguably the most popular of competitors and fans, the infamous concrete and skyscraper lined Surfers Paradise Street Race, the Gold Coast 600.
“Tony Quinn and I are proud to present the calendar for the 2021 Aussie Racing Cars Championship. In 2019 we celebrated our 20th anniversary. For 21 years the category has attracted the best drivers and teams to the biggest and best events on the Australian Motorsport Calendar. The coronavirus pandemic severed our 2020 season having only raced once at the Bathurst 12 hour in February and so the championship trophy was not awarded for 2020. The 22nd Aussie Race Car Series will fittingly commence at the spiritual home of motorsport, Mount Panorama. With a series focused on the eastern states and including a mix of the premier Supercars events as well as a number of cost efficient Shannons Nationals events, we now know that Aussie Racing Cars is back, bigger and better than ever!” Said Aussie Race Cars Category Manager, Brad Ward.
The calendar includes 6 confirmed events and the category is currently reviewing options for an additional round to form a 7 round series with all events being fully televised as part of the Supercars or Motorsport Australia Nationals TV packages, the category is expected to receive more TV coverage than ever before.
