Australian Prototype Series
The Australian Prototype Series (APS) continues to feature as part of the Shannons Nationals calendar in 2019.
Embracing a remarkably diverse array of open-top sports and open wheel cars, the APS launched onto the Australian motor sport landscape in 2017 with competitive racing and a hint of what is to come.
The remarkably competitive series saw even performance between the diverse group of competing vehicles and drivers.
The APS continues to be a category for young drivers to gain experience for international sports car competition, and for amateur or enthusiast racers to enjoy their competition, be competitive and race some of the most impressive cars around.
As in previous seasons, variety will again be the focus of a stable set of rules and regulations, with multiple class competition to continue in an effort to build on the existing foundations.
Eligible cars for P1 Class competition include the current 6SR cars of Lincspeed, Prince, Minetti, Speads, Stohr and West; and the current 2C cars of Radical SR3 and ADR3; plus the FIA Group CN cars from ADR3, Chiron, Juno, Ligier, Norma, Tatuus, and Wolf.
Each class will be recognised at each round, generating competition throughout the grid in every race.
Round 1: 17-19 May, Sydney Motorsport Park
Round 2: 28-30 June, Phillip Island*
Round 3: 2-4 August, Queensland Raceway
Round 4: 30 August – 1 September, Winton
