Sports Sedans join Race Tasmania bill

THE popular Precision National Sports Sedan Series will add another dimension to the annual Race Tasmania in 2024.

Sports Sedans will join the Shannons SpeedSeries event at Symmons Plains, which has been shifted back a month into mid-March.

That will be the category’s season-opener, as it switches to a new Hankook control tyre.

A recent draft 2024 calendar for the series involved five rounds, also including stops at The Bend, Sydney Motorsport Park, Mount Panorama (for the Bathurst International) and a to-be-confirmed venue.

Sports Sedans did compete at the Mountain this year, but as part of the Repco Bathurst 1000.

As for Race Tasmania, discounted tickets have been released for the event, which Australian Racing Group boss Barry Rogers hopes to see become a major element of the national motorsport calendar.

“Race Tasmania has become one of the major events on the SpeedSeries calendar, and 2024 is going to be spectacular,” said Rogers.

“We focus on providing great entertainment for fans with non-stop track action.

“Categories such as the incredibly nimble and exciting TCR cars, the V8-powered Trans Am muscle cars that constantly race door to door, and for the first time in decades the noisy, tough and incredibly fast Sports Sedans. All supported by your local heroes as well.

“Bring your family along and enjoy one of the best value days on the Australian motorsport calendar.”

The 2024 SpeedSeries will begin in February at Sandown.
