More track time and racing will be added to the national motorsport calendar in 2023 with the introduction of the Motorsport Australia Trophy Series.
The new Trophy Series will provide further opportunities for a number of national categories to compete on Australia’s best circuits at events run and organised by Motorsport Australia.
Initially, the Trophy Series will take place at three circuits, mostly coinciding with the dates of the SpeedSeries events
to provide back-to-back racing for the benefit of fans and competitors alike, as well as provide the infrastructure required for both events.
Visiting Sydney Motorsport Park, Queensland Raceway and The Bend Motorsport Park, the Motorsport Australia Trophy Series will feature a wide range of categories, with full 2023 category calendars to be announced soon.
The events will also be live streamed, with further broadcast details to be confirmed shortly.
Motorsport Australia Director of Motorsport & Commercial Operations said the Trophy Series was nearing capacity, such is the desire for more racing opportunities.
“We've been in discussion with a wide range of category managers who have said they are eager for more track time to expand their calendars and provide as much racing as possible to their competitors,” Smith explained.
“Given that level of interest, we’re thrilled to be confirming the debut of the Motorsport Australia Trophy Series in 2023. This will provide categories with even more opportunities to go racing at iconic circuits around the country.
“Most of the events will also take place either side of the SpeedSeries events, which means logistically we can set up at venues for both events and will have staff in place to deliver both race meetings efficiently and sustainably.
“The category line up for the Motorsport Australia Trophy Series is already close to capacity, so there’s real interest there for these events and we know they will be a great success in 2023 and beyond."
