The weather gods were certainly shining during the fourth round of the Australian Motor Racing Series (AMRS) as seven of the fastest categories in Australia came together at the imposing Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit.

The paddock was jam-packed with spectators as they mingled with drivers, mechanics and machinery enjoying the one of the key elements to the AMRS; accessibility. Getting an up close and personal glimpse of National Motor Racing was what spectators told us they wanted and it's what we are all about.

The Phillip Island circuit is one of the fastest circuits in Australia and round four was all about speed: Commodore Cup with 1:49.1938, Gulf Western Oil Touring Car Challenge 1:38.7777, GT/APDC with times from 1:37.3913, Superkarts with an impressive 1:33.5408, TranZam Sports Sedans with 1:31.8804, Kumho Tyres Australian Formula 3 Championship 1:28.1182 and the fastest was F4000 with a time of 1.27.7935 from Neil McFadyen in General Motors new V6 Alloytec weapon.

Thanks go to General Motors who provided the Monaro Safety Car to the AMRS for the weekend and its Gen 4 burble and stature added another dimension to the exciting AMRS program. Stay tuned over the coming days for the release of TV times for vision from round four at Phillip Island.

Take the time to come to Queensland Raceway - watch the racing, get involved with the teams and meet the drivers, talk to the mechanics and enjoy the close on-track action. Bring the kids along to a great day of racing.
