Details

The Australian GT Trophy Presented by Pirelli was introduced to the Australian motor sport landscape in 2016 and made its debut at the Shannons Nationals, and in 2017 returns for five rounds.

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.
