CAMS Australian GT Trophy Series presented by Pirelli
Apr 11, 2017
After a standout debut at the Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour, the mighty Interlloy KTM X-Bow GT4 made a return to the circuit over the weekend for the opening round of the CAMS Australian GT Trophy Series at the Shannons Nationals first round at Sandown.
M-Motorsport team boss Justin McMillan was joined by Dean Koutsoumidis for the car’s debut in the series, and said the car has made improvements since it first raced in February around the Mountain.
2017 Australian GT Trophy - Trophy Class
The popular addition provided a number of key benefits for Australian GT, as for competitors, it added value to their machines as the competition gave them a dedicated home within the Australian motor sport landscape.
The older generation machinery also presents a lower entry point into the most exciting form of racing in the country, and the perfect place for drivers to gain experience before stepping into the Australian GT Championship.
Also welcomed into the Trophy Series are entries from MARC Cars Australia, which enjoy their own dedicated class within the field.
The competitive, Australian made race cars are a perfect fit for the series given they were specifically designed and built for longer form races.
The Trophy Series shares much in common with the Australian GT Championship, including compulsory pitstops, designed to balance out the racing to its longer 50-mimute races.
