Scott Taylor set for Aussie Racing Cars return at Queensland Raceway

Motorsport industry stalwart Scott Taylor will make a return to the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series at Queensland Raceway this weekend.

Taylor will saddle up in his #222 Aussie racer for the second round of the series, supporting the Australian Superbikes at the ‘Paperclip’ venue in Ipswich.

He plans to contest all three Queensland Aussie Racing Cars events in 2024, including the popular Townsville street race and the season finale on the Gold Coast streets in October.

It marks a return to Aussie Racing Car competition for Taylor, who last drove in the class at Townsville in 2023.

While he has never contested an entire Aussies series, he is no stranger to class, making his debut some 10 years ago.

Taylor is an immensely experienced ‘Am’ racing driver, having competed for a number of years in the Fanatec GT Australia and Carrera Cup.

Taylor will be one of over 30 entrants in the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series field, starting at Queensland Raceway this Friday for practice and qualifying, followed by two races on both Saturday and Sunday.

All of Sunday’s action will be broadcast live on YouTube via the Australian Superbikes channel.

“The Aussie Racing Cars are a great little car, the category has great events and with this weekend being in my own backyard, I thought I may as well come out and have a go,” said Taylor.

“The cars are just a whole lot of fun. I was racing in GTs and Carrera Cup, and because I had a year out with a health scare, I thought instead of jumping back into first grade, why not ease back with a fun and safe class.

“I’ve done quite a few Aussie Racing Cars events, and every time I come home, my wife says I have a huge smile on my face. It’s so much fun to be a part of.

“The atmosphere in the Aussie Racing Cars paddock is very good. They are a fun group of guys and girls and they’re all very helpful. Once the helmet goes on, there’s lots of competition, but there’s a great sense of community.

“The cars in Carrera Cup are very fast, and at the age of 60, they can get away from you. In the Aussie Racing Cars, I can explore different driving styles, try new things, make mistakes and regardless of what you do, they rarely get away from you.

"It’s a really good category where you can drive the car hard, damage is limited and generally, it’s great all round value.”
