Calendar released for 2023 SpeedSeries

SEVEN rounds will make up the 2023 SpeedSeries, encompassing both the Motorsport Australia Championships and the Australian Racing Group’s suite of events.

The SpeedSeries banner debuted this year exclusively as an ARG program, although some crossover existed with the MA Championships.

Next year will see a fully unified approach, although there will still be some additional lower-profile Motorsport Australia events.

As has become the norm, the SpeedSeries will open with Race Tasmania at Symmons Plains and feature two visits to Mount Panorama.

Sydney Motorsport Park, Queensland Raceway, Sandown and a to-be-confirmed Victorian venue will make up the remaining rounds, with Stan Sport announced as the ongoing broadcast partner.

“Creating a single brand for the suite of ARG and Motorsport Australia categories to fall under made sense for all concerned, and it’s been a great collaboration with the team at Motorsport Australia to make it happen,” said ARG chief operating officer Liam Curkpatrick.

“It makes sense for the fans, partners, for the broadcasters and for the categories themselves who will be able to tell their own supporters, sponsors and followers that they are racing at a SpeedSeries event wherever they go throughout the year.

“The unified approach will mean our marketing, promotion and management of each event can be even more effective and continue to build on the record attendances and great broadcast audiences seen this year.

“2022 has served as something of a soft launch for the SpeedSeries brand, but its clear and simple branding has worked very well and we are looking forward to collaborating with the team at Motorsport Australia to build it further in 2023 and beyond.”

Motorsport Australia director of motorsport and commercial operations Michael Smith added: “We’re excited about what lies in store for the 2023 SpeedSeries.

“After an interrupted few years, 2022 allowed us to deliver a huge range of events with some record crowds at venues across the country and plenty of people watching on through the high-quality Stan and Nine broadcasts. These events highlighted the strong interest in the sport and the competing categories.

“Next year sees the SpeedSeries take another step forward in its evolution, with a clear identity and more quality events that we will work closely with the team at ARG to deliver.

“It makes sense to have the one SpeedSeries brand for both fans at the event and at home.

“We’re also really excited to be able to announce a number of other events alongside the SpeedSeries to provide even more track time and racing options for a range of national and state categories eager to compete on the national stage. We’ll share more about this news in the coming weeks.”

One round of the 2022 SpeedSeries remains: the Bathurst International on November 11-13.
