SRO to take over GT World Challenge Australia

THE promoting of GT World Challenge Australia will change hands for 2024, with SRO Motorsports Group taking over from the Australian Racing Group.

Global organisation SRO had already been confirmed to run a Motorsport Australia-sanctioned standalone GT4 series Down Under next year.

Now SRO’s Australian arm will also be tasked with the responsibility of the existing GT3 category as ARG focuses on its various other properties.

The GTWC promoter change will not happen until after the completion of the 2023 season, V8 Sleuth understands. One round remains this year, the VAILO Adelaide 500.

Meanwhile, a seven-round 2024 calendar for GTWC has been unveiled.

It will incorporate the Bathurst 12 Hour on February 16-18 before following the Shannons SpeedSeries to Phillip Island, The Bend, Queensland Raceway, a to-be-confirmed venue, Sydney Motorsport Park and back to Mount Panorama for the season-ending Bathurst International.

Three titles will be awarded: a Sprint Championship, Endurance Championship, and an overall crown.

The Bathurst 12 Hour and Sydney Motorsport Park four-hour will form the endurance element, with the other five events designated as sprint rounds.

2024 Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia powered by AWS calendar:

Round 1: Bathurst 12 Hour – February 16-18
Round 2: Phillip Island – April 12-14
Round 3: The Bend Motorsport Park – May 24-26
