Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series ready for thriller in the West

The Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series returns to Raceway in Western Australia for the first time since 2017, and the title fight is evenly poised.

After winning the Round 2 at Queensland Raceway just three weeks ago, Joel Heinrich in the Osborn’s Transport entry leads the standings by just two-points from returnee Kody Garland, while Western Sydney Motorsport’s Cody Brewczynski is a further four behind.

The top three won’t have the benefit of prior category experience at the short yet challenging circuit, however one contender does in the form of Reece Chapman.

Contesting the last visit in 2017, Chapman will be targeting an improved run after a mechanical problem hampered his opening race at Queensland Raceway leading to a superb drive through the field in the second encounter.

Impressive Rookie Cup leader Mason Harvey has led the way for Corish Motorsports in 2024 and will bank on local knowledge as he returns home on the national stage.

Leading Masters Cup contender Kent Quinn, Emma Clark, Grant Thompson and Jeff Watters will be among those to have raced in Western Australia back seven years ago as well.

Two youngsters will receive their first taste of Battery World Aussie Racing Cars in Perth as Formula Ford racer Lachlan Evennett and TFH Hire’s Diesel Thomas, brother of series regular Josh.

Also returning to the field is Asher Johnston for Johnston Craill Racing Enterprises after missing Queensland Raceway.

Others to keep an eye on will be Corish Motorsports Rookie Cup driver Jordan Freestone, Brandon Madden for Riskie Racing and 2022 series winner Josh Anderson.

The Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series will contest four races as support to the Repco Supercars Championship’s Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint at Raceway on May 17-19.

“I’m pretty stoked to have a national category like the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars come to Perth,” said Harvey.

“It’s great to have a class like this come over to Western Australia and even better for me as I can race in front of not only my sponsors, but all of my family as well. I can also sleep in my own bed as I live just 30 minutes from the track!

“I feel straight away I may have an advantage, but by the time we roll out for the first race it will be pretty even. The same guys emerge at the front no matter what track we go to. My local knowledge will help me in opening practice and heading into qualifying, but the top eight or 10 regular frontrunners I expect will still be there.

“Plus it’s super hard to be a lot quicker than the field with close cars and slipstreaming, so it’ll be hard to pull a gap.”
