Sciberras family to unite for Race Sydney Series X3 round

Series X3 New South Wales class title contender Brian Sciberras will hand the reigns over to his daughter Monique for the series’ invitational event at next month’s Race Sydney.

The father-daughter duo currently compete as separate entries in the exciting state category but will join forces for the international event at Sydney Motorsport Park in preparation for their respective 2024 campaign.

With the series’ official season to wrap up at Eastern Creek this weekend for its fifth and final competitive round, Brian was looking forward to sharing his car with his daughter for the international event.

“Monique wants to have a run in my car as she hasn’t driven it in a race before,” Brian said.

“Her car is set up a little bit different to mine, I can make a couple of changes for her and hopefully she likes it so she can adapt things to her car for next year.

“It’s very exciting. She’s done a test in it before, but she wanted another one.

“They are just set up a little bit different, she likes the way mine is set up so we will just see how that works.

“She is very consistent, stays out of trouble, maybe gives up a few spots that she shouldn’t but at least she doesn’t hurt the car.”

Ahead of the season finale this weekend, Monique currently sits fifth in the Trophy Sprint standings and is in mathematical title contention.

The upcoming round will also mark a fantastic achievement for Monique, who brings up 100 races in the Excel category.

Meanwhile, Brian will continue his entertaining battle for the Masters’ Sprint class title with Shannon Williams as the duo enter the final round of the season on equal points.

“We have our last competitive round this weekend and I think Shannon is the youngest in the class and I am the oldest,” Brian added.

“I’m very excited to go up against him. We will both be fair with each other and if we knock a couple of mirrors, it won’t matter. But we won’t be trying to take each other out.

“He is great to race with, he races hard but he’s fair – we give each other room when we need to, so it’s good that it’s fair racing.

“At Winton, I was 38 points behind him and I have been clawing back ever since, luckily enough I have had a better run and we are now equal on points.

“We have both had a bit of bad luck but it’s still good being up there.”

Series X3 NSW will be one of four exciting categories to join in the action at Race Sydney this November, featuring day and night sessions for Kumho TCR World Tour and Supercheap Auto TCR Australia, National Trans Am Series and Workhorse Radical Cup Australia.
