The CAMS Australian Endurance Championship (AEC) was created in 2016 as a result of the on-going growth of GT racing in Australia.
The AEC will be contested over four rounds with two in New Zealand.
The AEC races will each have two timed compulsory pit stops and each car will have two drivers. The endurance races will be perfect for PRO/AM driver combinations however many cars will have two amateur ranked drivers.
Vehicles eligible for the AEC are restricted to the current specification GT3 cars which are the same as vehicles which compete in worldwide GT3 racing.
If the track density limits allow, there will be a number of Invitational vehicles participating in the races however they will not be eligible for AEC points.
The final two rounds of the 2017 AEC will be held in New Zealand. The Hampton Downs round of the AEC will be the largest motor sport event ever held in New Zealand.
Round 1: 26-28 May, Phillip Island (Shannons Nationals) Round 2: 18-20 August, Sydney Motorsport Park Round 3: 27-39 October, Hampton Downs (NZ) Round 4: 10-12 November, Highlands 101 (NZ)
