The Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series heads this month to the Apple Isles to the amazing Symmons Plains Raceway, one of our all time favourite tracks - a circuit very much suited to the Aussie Cars.
The 2009 ARC Champion was Tasmanian local Adam Gowans, we caught up with Adam and fired off a batch of questions, Gowans joins the class at Symmons Plains in a couple of weeks.
Q: When did you first race with the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series?
A: 2007 for the 2nd Round at the Albert Park Formula 1 Grand Prix Event.
Q: What would you say is your most favourite memory from racing in the class?
A: Can’t go past claiming the 2009 title. The single race many people remind me of is the 2014 Bathurst 1000, Sunday Morning Final race. Making a pass for the lead & win on the last corner of the race, after starting P.10 following earlier incidents. It was a determined, rewarding drive!
