DETAILS

The AUSTRALIAN SWIFT RACING SERIES will join the Shannons Nationals in 2011 for their debut season in Australia.

Based on the fantastic New Zealand Swift Sport Cup, the series provides the best one make competition and cost effective racing series that we have seen for many years.

Typically of a one-make series, results ultimately come down to driver skill, which is a big reason why the category promoters are so intent on it becoming a logical stepping stone for aspiring young drivers looking to develop a name in Australian motorsport.

Keeping the Australian series aligned technically with New Zealand also provides an opportunity for both countries to develop a young driver path towards greater opportunities within touring car circuit racing not just in Australia, but internationally..
