V8 Touring Cars to support V8 Supercars Championship at Winton SuperSprint and Coates Hire Ipswich SuperSprint

THE Kumho Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series today confirmed it will hold two rounds next year at V8 Supercars Championship events.

The series, which first appeared back in 2008 and has since become a home for former V8 Supercars, will join the support category line-up at May’s Winton SuperSprint and July’s Coates Hire Ipswich SuperSprint at Queensland Raceway next year.

Both rounds will be televised live on FOX Sports and form part of a five-round national series for the category, which uses a control Kumho tyre and will be entering its ninth season next year.

Prior to 2016 the Kumho Series has raced exclusively on the Shannons Nationals bill, however May next year will be the first time it has competed away from its traditional home.


2016 Schedule

THE Kumho Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series has a fresh five-round calendar for the 2016 series with two exciting, significant changes over previous years.

The series will compete at V8 Supercars Championship events next year for the first time, supporting the V8 Supercars at Winton in May and Queensland Raceway in July with live television coverage on FOX Sports to be included.

Another major addition to the 2016 calendar is the category’s debut appearance at the Muscle Car Masters, which next year will be held on the last weekend of October for the first time in the event’s decade-long history. It will form the final round of next year’s series.

The 2016 V8 Touring Car Series will be contested over five rounds in three states:

Round One Sandown, VIC (Shannons Nationals) April 1 - 3
Round Two Winton, VIC (V8 Supercars) May 20 - 22
Round Three Queensland Raceway, QLD (V8 Supercars) July 22 - 24
Round Four Phillip Island, VIC (Shannons Nationals) September 9 - 11
Round Five Sydney Motorsport Park, NSW (MCM) October 28-30
