Australian Trans-Am (https://www.australiantransam.com.au/) - Harking back to the glory days of Australian and American Touring Car racing, Australian Trans-Am has refined their technical regulations with the aim to improve safety and reliability, decrease build and running costs while providing close competition. The Trans-Am formula struck a chord with fans and competitors alike, as the visual appeal of the cars and the style of racing on display kept fans rushing to the fence.
The original Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Trans-Am series first began in 1966 and still continues to this day. In its formative years, Trans-Am cars were modified from the factory production cars of the era, as opposed to the purpose built space-frame or carbon fibre bodied race cars that the series now permits. During Trans-Am’s golden era between 1966 and 1972, the series was bolstered by heavy factory involvement, big-name drivers, and cars that were closely related to what could be bought off the showroom floor. Detroit powerhouses Ford and Chevrolet continued their famous showroom rivalry on the race track, as the factory-supported Mustang took on the Camaro with fights put up by the AMC Javelin, Plymouth Cuda, Dodge Challenger and Mercury Cougar.
Historic Touring Cars - Group N (https://www.facebook.com/groups/354580497954645/) - The category was introduced in 1981 and was initially known as Group N (Appendix J) Saloon Cars (Pre 1965). Cars had to be series production type saloons with seating for four, manufactured prior to 31 December 1964, of which at least 100 had been produced. Mechanical modifications were permitted with the intention of emulating racing under the Appendix J regulations which were current in Australia until 31 December 1964.
The eligibility criteria were amended in 1995 to include cars built up to 31 December 1972.
Queensland Touring Car Championship (https://qtcc.com.au/home.php) - With a huge field of cars, the primary focus of QTCC is to promote an enjoyable club level racing series which pays broad homage to the vehicles which have raced in the Australian Touring Car Championship (ATCC), in its many guises, Australian Group A, Group C and the Super Tourers series since its inception, with some specific exemptions, variations and restrictions.
The club and series is open to all naturally aspirated reciprocating and rotary piston engine cars which have raced in the ATCC, Australian Group A, Group C or the Super Tourer series since their inception. In addition, for an initial trial period of the entire 2015 Series, turbocharged two wheel drive cars shall be permitted to compete for championship points subject to some specific restrictions as outlined in the relevant section of the Competition Rules.
QR Sports & Sedans (https://www.facebook.com/QRSSqld) - QRSS is a "Run what ya brung" category where the only limitation is what you can imagine. No matter what car you have, as long as it meets the RACERS safety requirements, it is eligible to enter. Classes are split into Sports, Sedans and Overall. This category has seen everything from Turbo Pintaras, to MARC cars, Big Bangers and NASCAR's mixing it up together.
Production Ute Racing QLD (https://www.facebook.com/groups/493613540763375/) - The Production Ute Racing series will provide a low cost Circuit Racing format which enables motoring enthusiasts from all walks of life to partake in competitive motor-racing!
The series facilitates a safe & competitive environment where drivers are able to improve their driving skills.
