Shannons schedule confirmed The Bend finale 

The schedule for the 2021 Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships season finale at The Bend Motorsport Park has been confirmed with SBS to also broadcast part of the event.

The national race meeting, which will take place over three days in December, will welcome seven categories as part of the round with a mix of state and national series to make up the schedule.

For the first time in recent years, the Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia Series will run at a Shannons round as it wraps up the 2021 season with three races, including one 40-minute endurance race.

The Carrera Cup won’t be the only Porsche category in action, with the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia Series to hold a double round made up of four 30-minute races across the three days.

Both Porsche categories will be part of the two-hour SBS coverage on Sunday afternoon, with the National Sports Sedans Series’ third and final race of the weekend also to feature in the broadcast, while fans can watch the action through the dedicated livestream on the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships’ website and Facebook page on both Saturday and Sunday.

There will be plenty of state representation throughout the weekend too with the South Australian based Hyundai Excels to have three races and the Victorian based Porsche 944 Series to have four races over the weekend.

Rounding out the list of categories is the Sports Car Invitational, which returns after a highly successful inaugural season in 2020. A number of competitors from around the country, including those from the RA Cup, GC Marine Australian Prototype Series and state-level Sports Racing Cars championships are expected compete.

The category will have three practice sessions and one qualifying before tackling 35-minute races on both Saturday and Sunday.
