Further details of the previously-announced AMRS GT and Sports Car category (GT Lites) have been released today, with confirmation that it will be re-named GT-1 and managed by a new entity called GT-1 Australia.
GT-1 Australia has been established for the sole purpose of managing and promoting the GT-1 category which aims to provide owners of GT and sports cars with a cost-effective, user-friendly environment while competing at a national level.
GT-1 Australia will cater for a wide variety of GT and Sports Cars.
The category is specifically for non-professional drivers and will cater for a wide variety of GT and Sports Cars of all ages, while utilising a sporting handicap system that will provide each competitor with a chance of outright victory.
The GT-1 series boasts a five-round calendar with each round featuring practice and qualifying on Saturday and two 50-minute races on Sunday. Friday practice will be available at each round of the series but this will remain optional.
GT-1 Australia will be headed up by Rod Salmon, a Sydney based businessman and successful long-term GT competitor, and Paul Taylor, a vastly experienced motor sport regulator and administrator. Their combined expertise will help ensure the long term viability and integrity of the competition.
