Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships Director Michael Smith said the 2021 calendar promised plenty of excitement after an interrupted 2020.
“We all know that 2020 hasn’t allowed as much racing as we would have liked, particularly at the national level,” Smith explained.
“With restrictions starting to ease around the country, the prospect of our ‘Return To Race’ is very real and the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships calendar can be released with some certainty.
“The exact make up of each event is still to be confirmed, but we’re working closely with a range of category managers to deliver a really exciting season of national motorsport.”
Smith thanked those who had worked hard to develop the calendar, including circuit and category managers.
“Everyone is itching to get going again and the support for the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships events in 2021 has been reassuring to us,” Smith added.
“I’d also like to thank our event sponsors, including Shannons Insurance, Morris Finance, Burson Auto Parts and Michelin. All of our loyal partners make these events possible, so we are very grateful for the support.”
Tickets for each event will go on sale shortly, exclusively through the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships website in the coming weeks.
