The third round of the 2019 GT-1 Australia round at Sydney Motorsport Park will be a case of the finest in Aussie race car engineering taking on the rest of the world.
No less than nine of the locally-designed and built MARC Cars are entered for the event, including a pair of MARC II coupes for Adam Hargraves and also Geoff Taunton, who upgrades from a MARC I machine.
The MARC drivers will be up against a range of exotic GT3 cars including numerous Audi R8s, a couple of Porsches and a Lamborghini.
The absence of points leader Keith Kassulke has opened the way for several other drivers to close on the championship lead, including Porsche GT3-R racer John Morriss, and Audi pilots Rod Salmon and Matt Stoupas.
As per usual, the weekend format will consist of a pair of 50-minute races with handicap pit stops, depending on each driver’s qualifying time.
Points after Round 2
- Keith Kassulke – 501
- John Morriss – 364
- Rod Salmon – 357
- Matt Stoupas – 332
- Adam Hargraves – 305
