The penultimate round of the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series and final to be held in Australia will feature a massive 39 entries in Townsville.
Having failed to dip below 30 entries all season so far, the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series will welcome back a few contenders as Townsville represents the second largest list of competitors in 2023.
Osborn’s Transport driver Joel Heinrich leads the standings, but hasn’t had it his own way recently as series returnee Cody Brewczynski for the Shell Rimula Topgun Race Team took the round in Darwin from Team CoolDrive/Perenso Racing’s Josh Anderson.
Heinrich holds a slender nine-point advantage at the top of the points table from Team CoolDrive/Motorsport 25 contender Reece Chapman and Anderson is a further two in arrears.
A few returning drivers are set to spice up the competition at the front led by previous race winner and 2018 Rookie of the Year Kyle Ensbey, while former Trans Am contender Jon McCorkindale makes a return after missing recent action.
Tony Quinn makes his return to the category as he joins eldest son and Masters Cup leader Kent in a second Norganic Proteins-backed entry. Western Sydney Motorsport contender Craig Woods also comes back to the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series and Adam Uebergang continues in Townsville following his return at Darwin.
Experienced GT competitor Scott Taylor also re-joins the category in Townsville driving his newly rebuilt Mustang.
Others to keep an eye on are impressive rookie Brandon Madden representing Riskie Racing, Gold Cup co-leaders Matt Gooding and Sheridan Phillips in addition to debutant Zac Schonberger.
The Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series will contest four races across the weekend supporting the Repco Supercars Championship’s NTI Townsville 500.
