CALENDAR CHANGE FOR 2015 NATIONALS
THE SHANNONS AUSTRALIAN Motor Racing Nationals has confirmed a revised 2015 calendar that now includes eight rounds.
The series has announced that it will no longer visit Mallala Raceway in South Australia this year following changes to categories scheduled to compete at the round.
A decision by selected categories originally confirmed for the Mallala round to alter their calendars and no longer compete significantly reduced the viability of the round.
The decision to remove Mallala from the 2015 schedule was not taken lightly however ensures there was no risk for long-supporting Nationals categories in absorbing additional costs, should the round have continued with fewer race categories.
The changes have been made following consultation with, and with the full support of, Shannons Nationals categories, sponsors and partners.
The Mallala round was originally scheduled to host the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, Formula 3 Australian Drivers Championship, Kerrick National Sports Sedan Series, Australian Sports Racer Series and the IROC Challenge.
These categories will be accommodated at existing Nationals rounds or, potentially, external events if and where offered with details available soon.
The Nationals are committed to remaining in South Australia and have already working towards ensuring a strong return in 2016.
A fully-revised 2015 calendar and category breakdown will be released in due course.
