New Motorsport Australia series to debut next year

MOTORSPORT Australia has announced a new three-round series which will start next year.

The creation of additional race meetings was flagged when the 2023 SpeedSeries was recently presented as a unification of the Motorsport Australia Championships and Australian Racing Group events.

That’s now been confirmed in the form of the inaugural Motorsport Australia Trophy Series.

The Trophy Series will cater to national categories across three stops: Sydney Motorsport Park (June 16-18), Queensland Raceway (August 4-6) and The Bend Motorsport Park (October 13-15).

Each event will be live streamed.

Motorsport Australia director of motorsport and commercial operations Michael Smith noted the strong appetite for racing opportunities as a driving force behind the Trophy Series.

“We’ve been in discussion with a wide range of category managers who have said they are eager for more track time to expand their calendars and provide as much racing as possible to their competitors,” he said.

“Given that level of interest, we’re thrilled to be confirming the debut of the Motorsport Australia Trophy Series in 2023. This will provide categories with even more opportunities to go racing at iconic circuits around the country.

“Most of the events will also take place either side of the SpeedSeries events, which means logistically we can set up at venues for both events and will have staff in place to deliver both race meetings efficiently and sustainably.

“The category line up for the Motorsport Australia Trophy Series is already close to capacity, so there’s real interest there for these events and we know they will be a great success in 2023 and beyond.”
