Two Shannons Nationals appearances also confirmed in five-round calendar

THE Kumho Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series today confirmed its full five-round calendar for the 2016 series with a debut appearance at the popular Muscle Car Masters a standout highlight.

The final round of next year’s series will be held at the Muscle Car Masters event in late-October, a new date for the popular event run by the Australian Racing Drivers Club.

It means Sydney Motorsport Park will host the Kumho Series’ final round for the third year in a row.

The Kumho Series today also confirmed it will continue its long association with the Shannons Nationals, holding two of its rounds next season as part of the CAMS-run series - the season-opener at Sandown in April and Phillip Island in September.

The Shannons Nationals has, until next year, been the exclusive home of the category since its debut at Mallala in 2008.

Today’s confirmation of the location of these three rounds follows the recent announcement that two rounds of the 2016 Kumho Series will be held as part of V8 Supercars Championship events at Winton and Queensland Raceway in July.

Kumho Series Category Manager Liam Curkpatrick says the 2016 calendar is one gives the category its best chance for continued growth.

“Muscle Car Masters is an exciting addition to the calendar given it’s such a big event that has become a must-see part of the Australian racing calendar,” he says.

“Continuing with the Shannons Nationals is important too given it has been the home of the series since the very beginning nearly a decade ago.

“Our competitors enjoy racing at the Shannons rounds and we look forward to working with CAMS in their role as new category managers of those events.

“The recent news that we’ll be racing at V8 Supercars events has also been very well received too and the feedback from all parties involved has been very positive.”
