Building on the success of 2006, the 2007 series will grow to nine rounds, and in an exciting addition to the calendar, will visit Sydney’s Oran Park as well as the circuits visited this year. Following on from a successful association with the AMRS this year, Winton Raceway and AASA boss, Mick Ronke, said he was “happy to lock in the dates for the 2007 Calendar for the AMRS”.
The Australian Motor Racing Series has offered exciting, affordable and accessible motor racing throughout 2006, and this is set to continue in 2007, with a fantastically diverse lineup of categories and cars, including the extremely popular Australian Touring Car Challenge, 3.3 Litre Holdens and Production Touring Car Championship, the rapidly-growing Thunder Sports, Super TT, and the fastest category in Australia – Oz BOSS, for Formula 4000 and Big Open Single Seaters. And they’re just some of the categories you’ll see in 2007, with some exciting announcements and new developments to be revealed in the very near future.
The 2007 Australian Motor Racing Series will kick-off at Goulburn’s Wakefield Park in February, heading to Victoria to visit Calder and Winton in March and April respectively, then the series will head north to Queensland Raceway in June, to the ultra-fast Adelaide International Raceway in July. The series then returns for a second visit to Winton in August, Calder in September and Wakefield Park in October, with the 2007 Grand Finale to be held at Oran Park in November.
