SpeedSeries combines Queensland Raceway rounds

Motorsport Australia can confirm a change to the Shannons SpeedSeries schedule, with the planned Queensland Raceway double-header to be held as a single event.

The new bumper round will see the inclusion of the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series and Trico Trans Am Series into the 2-4 August event in the sunshine state.

TCR and Trans Am will now join the previously announced categories at the iconic Queensland venue, including:
·    Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia powered by AWS
·    Monochrome GT4 Australia
·    Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia
·    Giti Australian Formula Open
·    TGRA Scholarship Series

Anyone who had already purchased tickets for the July event will have their ticket transferred to the August event or provided with a full refund on request.

Tickets are also now available to purchase for the 2-4 August Race Queensland event from motorsporttickets.com.au.

Motorsport Australia made the decision to combine the rounds following the withdrawal of categories and while there were attempts made to find different categories to fill the void, these options did not materialise, making the event unviable in its current state given the rising costs and associated logistics of hosting national level motorsport.

Race Queensland will be shown across the screens of Seven, as part of its continued coverage of the Shannons SpeedSeries in 2024.

2024 Shannons SpeedSeries remaining rounds:
Race Queensland – Queensland Raceway – 2-4 August
Race Sydney – Sydney Motorsport Park – 18-20 October
Supercheap Auto Bathurst International – 8-10 November
