A record 30-car field features at the penultimate round of the TA2 Muscle Car Series, headlining the Australian Motor Racing Series at Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend, September 28/29.
Last time out at Winton Motor Raceway, two firsts, a second and a third from four races was enough to earn George Miedecke back-to-back round wins by a single point over Aaron Seton, but Seton’s Castrol Harris Racing Mustang continues to hold a 16-point lead at the top of the Performax Cup standings over the Lubrimaxx/Miedecke Motor Group Mustang heading into the business end of the season.
Following the sale of his Mustang to Jack Childs, Sunshine Coast racer Anthony Tenkate returns in a new car and an all-new colour scheme for the Tenkate Plant Hire Ford Mustang.
The grid also includes the return of Thunder Road Racing Team Australia entries of Don Dimitriadis and David Falvey, the Dodge Challenger of Allgate Racing’s Chris Formosa and Camaro racer Darren Berry.
The series returns to Sydney Motorsport Park for the second time this season after the Western Sydney venue hosted the season opener in March. Back then, it was Seton who asserted his early dominance by claiming three out of four race wins, before the 21-year old spun out in the final race and handed victory to Miedecke.
Seton remains the winningest driver of the season so far with eight race wins, ahead of 16-year old Nathan Herne and Miedecke equal on four.
No driver has managed to clean sweep all four races in a weekend as yet. Seton and Herne remain the closest to achieve that feat, with Seton taking three wins out of four at Round 1 and Round 2 before Herne was within sight of a clean sweep at Round 3 at The Bend before a diff failure in the final race.
The TA2 Muscle Car Series will hit the track for three practice sessions on Friday, followed by a split 15-minute Qualifying session, and four ten-lap sprint races across Saturday and Sunday.
Sunday’s races will be streamed live online, while a 30-minute post-produced highlights show will feature on Fox Sports 506 in the weeks following the event, with the first screening set for 9:30pm on Thursday October 17.
