Evolving from the former Australian Sports Racer Series, the Australian Prototype Series will cater for open-top and LeMans-style sports cars in Australia.

A three-class structure will cater for all existing eligible vehicles, while international specification ‘CN Prototype’ cars will become eligible for the first time and will compete alongside the Sports Racers, enabling a broader eligibility list that will open the series up to more cars than ever before.

The series is also pleased to confirm that Kumho Tyre Australia will serve as official tyre supplier and a sponsor of the 2017 Australian Prototype Series.
