Expanded SpeedSeries calendar for 2024

A DRAFT calendar has been released for the 2024 Shannons SpeedSeries, featuring an increased number of events.

There will be 10 rounds all up across eight different venues, starting with Sandown on February 9-11.

Symmons Plains, Phillip Island, The Bend, Queensland Raceway (twice), Sydney Motorsport Park (twice) and a to-be-confirmed venue follow, before a Mount Panorama finale on November 8-10.

“We’re excited to be releasing our draft 2024 calendar ahead of time to give all our categories and motorsport fans the opportunity to plan their year and look forward to another busy year,” said Motorsport Australia’s Michael Smith.

“While this calendar is provisional, we are hopeful that there will be very limited changes, if any, however the release of other category calendars, namely Supercars, may force us to shift some dates to avoid any clashes.

“With eight events held in 2023, we are pleased to be running an expanded 10 round bumper calendar in 2024, providing more opportunities for categories to be part of our exciting events.

“This year has seen the best crowds in the Shannons SpeedSeries/Shannons Nationals history and our digital footprint is the largest it’s ever been, reaching millions of people so far in 2023, along with strong TV ratings across a high-quality broadcast on Stan Sport and the Nine Network.”

Australian Racing Group chief operating officer Liam Curkpatrick added: “It’s pleasing to see the 2024 calendar take shape and we can’t wait to be part of the Shannons SpeedSeries again next year.

“We will shortly be able to release our category specific calendars as well, providing certainty and a clear path forward for 2024.

“This year has been a breakout year for the Shannons SpeedSeries with record crowds, TV audiences and across our digital platforms. 2024 promises to be another strong year and we look forward to getting underway at Sandown in February.”
