The raceway, formerly known as Wakefield Park, was closed due to noise issues in August 2022. It was purchased by Steve Shelley in the middle of last year and is undergoing extensive upgrades, which includes noise abatement and the ability to race in both directions.
“We are privileged to go back there [after Wakefield Park closed] and support Steve,” said series manager Stephen Whyte.
“What has been done there is amazing. Corners have been reprofiled, which includes a seven-degree camber banking at Turn 10. There are huge noise walls which double as viewing areas and the pits and infrastructure are being upgraded.”
The AASA-sanctioned series will begin and end in NSW with the first round set for Sydney Motorsport Park on April 19-20. It will be a Friday/Saturday day/night event, along the lines of last year’s penultimate event.
