The opening round of the inaugural Australian Motor Racing Series (AMRS) kicked off last weekend (February 26 & 27) at Goulburn's Wakefield Park Raceway in what was a highly successful meeting with exciting racing action spread right across all of the divisions. A strong crowd of 4823 spectators attended Sunday's meeting alone which was a highly promising sign for the future.
The AMRS would like to thank Judy Ellacott, CAMS, Wakefield Park, Garry Mennell, Les Morrall, David Gittus, Jeff Mattner, Paul Pickett and hundreds of other people for their support in the establishment of the AMRS and we once again commit ourselves to running the series for the competitors. Please see the review for AUSF3. Included under the AMRS banner will be summaries from the round one weekend.
Youngster Brad Lowe was the dominant force in the MoPro Cup Challenge driving his Lotus Elise by topping the field qualifying and carrying that form to register a second behind Simon Arthur in race one, then going on to score strong wins in race two and three. Arthur managed to place second behind Lowe in race two and three, while Andrew Fisher placed third in all three races in a consistent showing.
The road forward:
Round Two of the Australian Motor Racing Series will be held on April 16 & 17 at Mallala Raceway in South Australia with Formula 3, Australian GT Championship, Australian Porsche Drivers Challenge, Shannons Australian Production Car Championship, Gulf Western Oils Australian Touring Car Challenge, Super Kart Nationals, CSA Alloys Saloon Cars and more competing. Clem Smith from Mallala Motorsport Park always presents a great show for South Australian Motorsport and the AMRS is looking forward to its first visit to South Australia.
