Round 2 Media Release
VICTORIAN CHAMPIONSHIP RACING AT PHILLIP ISLAND – MAY 4th & 5th.
The CAMS 2019 Victorian State Circuit Racing Championships Round 2 is scheduled at Phillip Island on the weekend of May 4 & 5 with an expected entry of over 230 cars.
This enduring and premier Australian State Championship Series has entered its 28th consecutive year as a championship or series at Australia’s Most Picturesque Circuit.
2019 is emulating 2018’s great entry of 253, with 235 cars so far with over a week until entries close. The Excels reached capacity of the 58 cars maximum, one hour after entries opened and the open wheeler Formula Vees, Formula Ford, Formula Ford 1600s have great fields. The tin tops with Improved Production, Sports Sedans, HQ Holdens, Historic Touring Cars and Saloon Cars will provide non-stop action.
Porsche 944s are rebuilding their field with 20 cars expected, and MG and British Sports Cars continue with another year of similar entries.
Action a plenty is assured from 9.00am to 5.00 pm daily, with family friendly admission unchanged with Adults weekend passes a mere $30.00, Sunday only $25.00, Saturday $20.00 and kids under 16 admitted free all weekend.
This meeting is the first of 4 race meetings being promoted by PIARC (Phillip Island Auto Racing Club), and one of 6 for the year with Club involvement, all with the added importance of helping the Island’s great history as a racing Mecca.
PIARC spokesman Geoff Bull says the club is hoping for 250 plus entries in total for this fantastic series which continues to get better by the year, setting entry records.
Again this event is Round 2 of 5 for CAMS Victorian State Circuit Racing Championships and is being conducted as usual at both Phillip Island and Sandown throughout the year and also in June at the Winton circuit near Benalla.
In the meantime make sure you note May 4 & 5 in your diary for a weekend of great budget priced family motorsport action at Phillip Island.

Press Release – Victorian State Circuit Racing Championships Round 1
The MG Car Club in association with the Victorian State Racing Series and CAMS are once again hosting the first round of the VSCRC for 2019. There will be private practice on Friday 1st of March with entry open right up to the day.
On Saturday 2nd March there will be qualifying in the morning and racing in the afternoon. On Sunday 3rd March there will be a full day of racing for all categories.
We have a very strong entry list with a total of 240 cars entered for the event comprising 9 categories. Topping the bill in terms of numbers are the very popular Hyundai Excels with 66 cars. The Excel Racing Association have come up with a novel approach for this event with the idea of splitting the two grids into age groups- of the drivers not cars-into under and over 40 years of age. Should be great to watch.
As usual we also have a very strong entry from the Improved Production group with 42 entries. They always provide terrific racing with a great variety of cars with everything from Minis to Mazda RX7s to V8 Holden’s and Fords.
The Victorian Sports Sedan Association have been working very hard behind the scenes with a new committee injecting some real energy into the category. Their efforts have paid off big time with one of the best entries seen at a VSCRC round for a long time. The 35 entries dominated by the big booming 6 litre Chevrolets, Falcons and Commodores. A welcome addition to the Sports Sedan grid is the Vic V8’s and the Nissan Pulsar group, something for everyone.
The promoter’s favourites are of course MG Racing. They have come up with a solid grid of 24 cars headed by the 2018 Champion Phil Chester in his awesome MGB GT V8. Phil will not have it all his own way with 4 more V8s plus the welcome return of Andrew Howell in his MG ZR Judd. A brand-new car to the group is the MG SV-R V8 to be driven by Andrew’s son Rhys. This is probably the rarest car on the grid as it is the only race car built by the factory. It was built in 2005 to the FIA GT3 regulations and ran in a number of GT races in Europe. Andrew Howell bought it in the UK and has spent the last six years on an extensive rebuild. It has a full carbon fibre body and aero package- should be a rocket.
Formula Vee have been busy over the off season and have come up with a strong grid of 19 cars. There is no doubt that the Vees put on some of the closest and exciting racing on the program. If you want to see the art of slipstreaming demonstrated to perfection, these are the races to watch.
Formula Ford have 17 entries with a mixture of Duratec and 1600 on the grid. Jason Bargwanna’ s son Benjamin has now moved up from the Excel category into a Spectrum Formula Ford. We will watch with interest Ben’s progress in adapting to an open wheel racing car.
Porsche 944 Challenge have started the season strongly with 16 cars on the grid. These 2.5 Litre Stuttgart flyers always produce close and exciting racing and Sandown will be no exception.
The ever-popular HQ Holden’s will start their Championship at Sandown. With David Amor in charge of the microphone we can be assured of some loud action.
Saloon Cars will bring the entertaining mix of traditional rivals Ford and Holden to the track
Admission to the track for spectators is free on Friday for practice. Gates open at 7.00am and close at 6.0pm.
Admission fee on Saturday $20 and Sunday $25, Weekend pass $30. Children under 16 free gives access to the pits and grandstand.
The Red Hill area will be open on Sunday. This is a wonderful spot to view the racing where spectators can drive their cars in and have a picnic while watching some of the most spectacular parts of the track.
