ROUND

The last time the Shannons Nationals visited The Bend Motorsport Park, history was made as it was the first time Australia witnessed the new world class circuit in action. This time round, it’s a little different, with the 15-month-old circuit holding its own as one of Australia’s premier race tracks - the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship’s OTR SuperSprint claiming the Major Event of the Year at the 2018 South Australian Sport Awards further justifying its title.

Joining the series are four other categories, all of which have lots on the line, making it an exciting return to the track for the Shannons Nationals.

BEND

In 2019, the Shannons Nationals will have two visits to Tailem Bend as part of its seven round season and this month’s round will allow South Australians to get their first look at the brand new carsales TCR Australia series.

CARSALES TCR AUSTRALIA SERIES After two rounds, the new series has been everything fans expected it would be. A combination of entertaining individual performances, thrilling racing and dramatic conclusions has all been part of the inaugural season. A pile up in the final race of the previous round at Phillip Island handed HMO Customer Racing’s Will Brown another weekend to remember as the 2016 CAMS PAYCE Australian Formula Champion extended his lead at the top.

CAMS AUSTRALIAN ENDURANCE CHAMPIONSHIP Some brilliant driving from Geoff Emery and his partner Garth Tander in Phillip Island saw the reigning CAMS Australian GT Champion take top spot in the championship after one round. The Championship enters its second round this month and the leaders will want to redeem themselves after finishing 12th in the championship‘s visit to The Bend last year.

Ashley Seward Motorsport’s Dylan O’Keefe will be going into the round hungry for success after the collision in the final race ruined his two-race wins, while Tony D’Alberto rounds out the top three by one point over Aaron Cameron.

It’s a big race for Max Twigg and Tony D’Alberto with the duo in third place on the Endurance standings after a solid season opener, while Twigg leads the outright CAMS Australian GT Championship. The 2018 CAMS Australian Endurance Champions won the round the last year so they will be full of confidence.

As with all the rounds in 2019, the series will have Qualifying on Saturday morning with the first race of the weekend on Saturday afternoon, while Sunday will have two races in succession again.

Another big team to watch out for will be Fraser Ross and Ryan Simpson in the McLaren 720S GT3. The pair finished runner-ups in Victoria and would fancy themselves for a big weekend.

CAMS PAYCE AUSTRALIAN FORMULA 4 CHAMPIONSHIP The stage is set for the final weekend of the Championship with the second double round for 2019. Luis Leeds is in the box seat for his maiden title after dominating the year thus far by claiming every round and the Victorian is determined more than ever to get the job done. Of the six races last meeting, Leeds won half of them with Ryan Suhle grabbing two. The teenager's results make him one of a few drivers to prevent Leeds from achieving his goal. A breakout year for Antonio Astuti sees him in second outright, 25 points behind Leeds and with every chance to pip the leader in this month’s double round.

NATIONAL SPORTS SEDANS SERIES The National Sports Sedans Series enters its second round for the 2019 season and top honours went to the experienced and decorated Tony Ricciardello. Not far behind him is reigning champion Steve Tamasi who knocked the veteran of his perch in 2018 after a stellar year for the youngster. While only one round has passed, things are already heating up with the current superstar of the competition trying to prevent the series’ future star continue his rise. The series was also part of the Nationals when it last visited the South Australian track and both Tamasi and Ricciardello were at the top of the standings – making this month’s round one to look forward to.

IMPROVED PRODUCTION RACING ASSOCIATION SOUTH AUSTRALIA The special invitational round will see Improved Production cars from all around the country congregate one the biggest stages to do battle for bragging rights. With no points on offer to any respective competition, it will allow the drivers to do battle with no restrictions and showcase their talent in front of the Shannons Nationals crowds.

LOOKING AHEAD TO ROUND FOUR The Shannons Nationals’ fourth round for 2019 will take place at Queensland Raceway on 2-4 August. Marking the middle round of the 2019 season, the Nationals will welcome regulars, carsales TCR Australia series, Porsche Michelin GT3 Cup Challenge Australia and National Sports Sedan Series. New to the 2019 schedule are Improved Production Racing Association of Queensland, Series X3 Queensland and MRF Tyres Australian Production Car Series, back again for their annual night race format.
