“The strong interest that we saw at Sydney Motorsport Park was really encouraging, and from the feedback so far, we feel that many Victorians are going to come and see this new breed of touring cars at the Island,” said Matt Braid.
“The racing that we saw in Sydney was spectacular, and as we’ve seen over the years, Phillip Island can always produce close, unpredictable motorsport.
“It’s going to be really interesting to see how the field shapes out. We got a pretty good form guide in Sydney, but as the teams and the drivers get used to these cars, I don’t think you can genuinely say that there’s a favourite in the field. It is wide open.”
Director, Shannons Nationals
“We are looking forward to another big crowd at Phillip Island for the next round of the Shannons Nationals,” Smith said.
“With a long weekend taking place at the same time as the racing, it’s a perfect opportunity for people in the area to check out some quality racing, including the new TCR Australia Series. The first round of the TCR proved exceptionally popular, and we’ve got no doubt that success will continue at Phillip Island.
“As well as TCR, there will also be some competitive racing across the weekend to experience, including CAMS PAYCE Formula 4 Championship, CAMS Australian Endurance Championship and Porsche Michelin GT3 Cup Challenge.”
