The PROMAXX Performance Exhausts TA2 Muscle Car Series will stage the final round of its 2020 State of Origin Series with its debut event at Sandown Raceway as part of the Australian Motor Racing Series (AMRS) race meeting on November 28-29.
As part of the TA2 Muscle Car Series ‘State of Origin’ strategy to encourage participation at local state-based race meetings, the Sandown event will be open to all TA2-specification cars in Victoria. Early entries have also been received from competitors in New South Wales and Queensland pending border restrictions.
The TA2 Muscle Car Series finale at Sandown, which first held races in 1962, also marks the first race meeting at the suburban Melbourne circuit to be sanctioned by the Australian Auto Sport Alliance (AASA).
Victoria played host to the first round of the TA2 Muscle Car Series at Winton in March, where Queenslander John McLaughlin scored two race wins on his way to his maiden TA2 round victory in the #17 MyRaceProfile.com Mustang.
Further national events were postponed due to border restrictions in place to control the COVID-19 pandemic, with series organisers reverting to a state-based ‘State of Origin’ series for the 2020 season.
Kubota Racing Mustang racer Hugh McAlister won three out of four races to win the New South Wales State of Origin series at Sydney Motorsport Park in September, before Gulf Western Oils Dodge Challenger rising star Nathan Herne clean swept the Queensland State of Origin round at Queensland Raceway in October.
Formats for the event are yet to be confirmed, although series organisers expect to see four sprint races held across the weekend.
