2018 AMRS Round 1


AMRS - ROUND 1 Wayne Williams Series Manager Australian Motor Racing Series

Welcome to Winton Motor Raceway for the first round of the brand-new Australian Motor Racing Series. Putting this series together has been a massive undertaking, but seeing the fruits of all our efforts this weekend is going to be a huge reward for the hard work of everyone involved behind the scenes. The AMRS exists for one reason: passion. If it wasn’t for the passion of the competitors in wanting to race in a national series, the passion of the categories in wanting to provide a professional product for their competitors, and the passion of the series management team in putting in the hard work to get this project off the ground, the AMRS wouldn’t be happening. But the combined efforts of everyone means that not only is the AMRS happening, this weekend it’s going to be the focus of the

Australian motorsport community. We have been quite simply overwhelmed with the support from drivers and categories, and the number of entries we have received this weekend - more than 180 in total - well and truly surpasses our expectations. With the assortment of categories on the program this weekend, we know the racing will be entertaining and action-packed, so we suggest you encourage all your friends and family members to tune into the live stream on Sunday. As always, a big thank you to our dedicated team of volunteer officials who work tirelessly for the benefit of our sport. Many of these officials have been frequent attendees at Winton events, and are now relishing the chance to demonstrate their expertise on the national stage. Whether you are a driver, crew member, family member, friend or casual spectator, we hope you enjoy the inaugural AMRS round. Cheers, Wayne

AMRS Round 1 Event Preview

Valvoline Wakefield 300 Preview

A New Chapter This weekend marks the start of a new era for national-level Australian motorsport, as the AMRS kicks into gear. Lachlan Mansell caught up with series manager Wayne Williams to find out more about the brand-new series. Since the public announcement of its launch in October 2017, the response to the creation of the Australian Motor Racing Series (AMRS) has been overwhelming, with competitors and categories flocking to the newest national motor-racing series. But how was the AMRS concept initially conceived, and where does it fit in the Australian motorsport landscape? We caught up with Series Manager Wayne Williams to find out. To start off, tell us how the idea of the AMRS came about… In my role as the operations manager at Winton Raceway, I deal with a lot of different state and national motorsport categories, and as you can imagine, category managers have very forthright opinions about what they expect at events! From a lot of the conversations I had, it was clear there was room in the Australian marketplace for a national series delivering a professionallyrun but affordable level of race meeting, with a focus on making the experience enjoyable for the competitors. How did you get the AMRS off the ground? Once we identified the space in the market, I sat down with our (Benalla Auto Club Group) CEO Chris Lewis-Williams and we did some number crunching to work out if it was financially feasible.

2018 AMRS Round 1

We put a business plan together and presented it to the BAC board, and they were very enthusiastic about it – they saw it as not only a golden opportunity for the club to promote more motorsport events, but also for the Australian Auto-Sport Alliance (AASA) to enhance its reputation as an efficient, high-value, safety conscious sanctioning body. Since you launched the AMRS, how has the response been? The response from categories has been nothing short of sensational. When we put the initial business case together, we had a target list of categories we approached and they were all enthusiastic, but when we publicly announced the series was going ahead, we were contacted by a number of other categories that wanted to come on board. One of the best things has been the variety and diversity of categories that will be part of the 2018 AMRS. We have a couple of start-up or developing categories, such as the RX8 Cup Series, that are launching themselves as part of the AMRS. We have several state-level categories, such as the TA2 Series, Miniature Race Cars and Legend Cars, that are using AMRS to progress to the national stage. And then we have a category like the Australian Formula Ford Championship – the second-longest


standing national category in Australian motorsport history – that has chosen to start and end its 2018 season at AMRS rounds. That certainly gives us a lot of confidence in the product we’ve presented in the marketplace. Who are the main personnel involved in running the series? One of the priorities with the AMRS has been to ensure the competitor experience is consistent from event to event, so we will have a travelling circus of staff and officials who will follow the series around the country. I’m very fortunate to be leading a dedicated and passionate team who are determined to ensure the AMRS is a success. Many regular Winton competitors will be familiar with our event co-ordinator Sarah Ackerly – apart from being friendly, approachable and well-liked, Sarah is also very efficient so we’re thrilled to have her filling the role of race secretary. Daryl McHugh will be the Clerk of Course for all six rounds of the series, and he comes with a wealth of experience officiating at state and national-level events over a number of years. Keith McDonald will be the event supervisor while there will also be a core team of officials filling key roles such as scrutineering, recovery, timing and pit

lane. Many of these officials have fine-tuned their craft as dedicated volunteers at Winton events, and we’re very grateful they are generously giving up their time to travel further afield. One of the most attractive aspects of AMRS for competitors has been the inclusion of live streaming at every event, and this will be provided by Blend Line TV – Daniel Beckinsale has been involved in AV production of motorsport for a number of years now, and the quality of production has improved exponentially during the last couple of seasons. Commentator Lachlan Mansell’s voice is a familiar one for spectators at motorsport events all over the country and I know Lachy is very excited about calling the races for the on-track and live stream coverage at each event. What are the main goals for the AMRS in the first year? Because it’s a brand-new series, the first year is very much about ensuring all the competitors have fun, and spread the word amongst their fellow competitors. This will ensure that the categories running as part of the AMRS can grow and prosper, which will benefit the series as a whole. A lot of hard work has gone into the series and there is still much to be done, but we can’t wait for the cars to hit the track for the season opener at Winton – it will be a very special moment for us all!

ACO Legend Cars Australia

After some appearances at Wakefield Park and Winton state-level events over the last few seasons, Legend Cars expands to a full national series in 2018, with the series winner receiving the coveted “Race to the US� prize, to compete in the American Legend Cars. The motorcycle-powered Legend Cars are unique in being able to compete in both speedway and tarmac circuit racing events, and a number of drivers are making the transition from speedway to asphalt competition, including Scott Bennett, Jim McCabe, Andrew and Anthony Broers. There are also some accomplished circuit racing specialists including former Formula Ford racer James Burge, and former Formula 4 runner Zane Morse.

Superkarts

They may be small but don’t be deceived by their diminutive size, because Superkarts are some of the fastest vehicles around Australian race tracks. The karts in the premier 250cc International class run 90hp twin-cylinder motors from Honda, Yamaha or Rotax, and with a combined kart and driver weight of 210kg, their power-to-weight radio is among the best of any motorsport category.

Formula Ford

The national Formula Ford No series kicks off its 49th season 2 with a field rich in up-andcoming motor-racing talent. Leading the charge will be Cameron Shields, who finished a close runner-up in last year’s series after winning eight of the last nine races. Joining Shields at the BF Racing squad will be Nathan Herne, who carries momentum to Winton after a win in the Victorian state round at Sandown last weekend. Sonic Motor Racing Services is a team that has a long association with Formula Ford and they will again run a multicar attack, headed by Hunter McElrea who was a double race winner last season, along with the improving Hamish Ribarits and Angelo Mouzouris, and rising female star Courtney Prince. Other drivers who can be considered contenders for race victories include Liam McLellan, Harri Jones, Jake Donaldson and Cody Donald, while Lachlan Mineeff makes the progression to the national series under the watchful eye of 2015 champion Cameron Hill, after an impressive NSW state campaign last year.

Victorian TT/Group 4/Super 6/Utes

The predominantly Wintonbased Victorian Tin Top Series commences on the national stage, and will be joined by the Group 4 and Super 6 Touring Cars and Aussie Racing Utes in a combined grid. The philosophy of Victorian TT is “run what you brung”, hence there is a wide variety of cars on the entry list, including Holdens and Fords, turbocharged Mitsubishis and Subarus, a Mini Cooper S and a couple of Renault Clios. Group 4 Touring Cars is a new category, using Ford BA Falcon and Holden VY Commodore platforms powered by control 6.2 Litre LS3 V8 engines, while Super 6 Touring Cars is for sixcylinder versions of those vehicles (and earlier models such as VT Commodore and AU Falcon). The Aussie Racing Utes class is home to vehicles that formerly competed in the V8 Ute Racing Series – eligible vehicles range from the VU Commodore and AU Falcon Utes all the way through to the recently-superseded VE Commodore and FG Falcon models.

Stock Cars/Extreme TT

Always a crowd favourite, the Stock Cars are circuitconfigured versions of the vehicles that compete in the world-famous NASCAR category in America. The category is also open to Oztrucks (derived from the Camping World Truck Series machines). The Oztrucks of Steve and Michael Coulter will be among the front-runners this weekend, as will the Stock Cars of Brian Walden, David Hender and Motorsports Training Australia teacher Trevor Crisp. The Stock Cars will race in a combined grid with Extreme TT, open to vehicles deemed too fast for the Super TT and Production TT classes.
