Round Six of the Australian Motor Racing Series (AMRS) travels back to New South Wales for the first of two rounds at the fast flowing Eastern Creek Raceway circuit for 2005 next weekend, the first on the 23rd and 24th of July.

Australia's fastest open wheelers and fastest sedans will be doing battle for National Series and National Championship points when they launch onto the circuit at the fast flowing Eastern Creek circuit just over 40 minutes drive from the CBD of Sydney.

The AMRS provides unlimited access for spectators as they are invited to walk around the paddock, enjoy the free grandstand seating, talk to the teams and enjoy the best value for money motor racing event in Sydney for 2005.


The seven National categories racing at Eastern Creek raceway on the 23rd and 24th of July are:

*  Kumho Tyres Australian Formula 3 Championship

* Gulf Western Oil Touring Car Challenge
* 2005 Holden Australian Formula 4000 Championship
* Speed Energy Drink Australian GT Championship and Australian Porsche Drivers Challenge
* Shannon's Australian Production Car Championship
* Kerrick TranZam Sports Sedan Series
* Australian Superkart Championship

Bring the family out to the creek, watch Ferrari's, Porsche's, Dodge Vipers, Mustang's Honda NSX and Lamborghini's go door handle to door handle, see some of the best former V8Supercar's fight amongst the more nimble Super Tourers as they fend off the Group A legends and V8 Future Tourers for the title in the Touring Car Challenge.

Witness fire breathing 700hp 6lt TranZam Sports Sedans light up the track, with race bred Chevrolet V8 powered monsters tackling the high-speed circuit as they stake their claim as the fastest tin tops in Australia.

Watch the best Production Cars in the country go head to head; with SS Commodore up against XR6 Turbo, mixed with Honda S2000, Toyota Celica's, Honda Integra Type R, then mix together with Proton Satria, Vectra, Echo and Focus which creates brilliant handicap racing.

Enjoy the fastest open wheelers in Australia; Formula 3 the true international category and Formula 4000 Australia's answer to F3000 as they both race for the honour of the fastest open wheeler category in the country. Two different categories, four separate races and twice the fun!

With lap times only 6lt V8's can beat, the Superkarts fly around the Eastern Creek circuit that some describe as the perfect track for a Superkart. Sitting one inch from the track -- 200km/h must feel like 400 in these truly inspiring machines which defy belief.


Over the last decade a huge amount of exciting talent has entered the Motor Racing fraternity and the AMRS has harnessed this talent across all seven categories. So who are they?

Kerrick TranZam Sports Sedan Series sees 2004 Champion Darren Hossack toe to toe with Western Australia's finest Tony Ricciardello. The Kumho Tyres Australian Formula 3 Championship witnesses Aaron Caratti, Michael Trimble and Chris Alajajian as three of the hottest new property in open wheeler racing.

Garry Wilmington and Terry Wyhoon are no strangers to the Touring Car Challenge as they fend off 2004 Champion Luke Searle and young gun Adam Proctor. Hackett versus Washington, Teulan versus Giorgi, Palmer versus Huglin, with Porsche Drivers Challenge and GT Championship combining for Two races within the One.

Osborne and Shephard are providing some of the closest Production Cars action seen this year but the brute force of Anderson trying to fend off the hard charging Russell has highlighted the V8 versus 4cyl struggle. Hangar will have to watch out for Hollywood Hackett and series leader Pingel in the Formula 4000 Championship. Plus all of the 40 plus Superkarts racing against each other as they fight for the title of Australian Superkart Champion!
