Pro and Privateer classes to be created as V8 Touring Cars prepares for eighth season with Shannons Nationals

THE KUMHO Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series has confirmed a raft of changes of major benefit to competitors in the category in 2015.

A new class structure to split professional car preparers and owner/driver teams, an entry incentive program and a renewed television deal combine to give solid value to the loyal existing competitor base and any prospective entrant.

Cars in the 2015 Kumho Series will be split into ‘Pro’ and ‘Privateer’ classes with the ‘Pro’ cars those entered by professional race teams and car preparers (such as 2014 champions Eggleston Motorsport) and the ‘Privateers’ featuring drivers who prepare and operate their own car/s.

The Kumho Series is also offering free entry to the final round at Sydney Motorsport Park in November for competitors that have attended the first four rounds with the same driver and car combination.
