CAMS has welcomed the V8 Sleuth Touring Car Classic onto the bill for one of its Shannons Nationals rounds in 2019.
Open to former V8 Supercars/five-litre V8 touring cars, two-litre Super Tourers, V8 Future Tourers and invited cars, the event will be a celebration of Australian touring car racing history.
The brainchild of V8 Sleuth MD Aaron Noonan and Kumho Super3 Series category manager Liam Curkpatrick, the event has been created primarily to cater for the huge interest in early era five-litre/V8 Supercars among collectors and prospective racers.

The event will run as part of the CAMS Shannons Nationals round at Winton Motor Raceway on August 31/September 1.
“We’re really thrilled to support the Touring Car Classic concept and make it part of our Winton round of the Shannons Nationals later in the year,” Michael Smith, General Manager of Motor Sport for CAMS, said.
“The concept of celebrating Australian touring car racing in this way is a really exciting one.
“The cars and eras covered by this Classic format are diverse and will bring back many memories for fans of V8 and two-litre racing from the last few decades.”
