The Sydney 10-hour endurance race for Production Touring and Production Sports Cars will kick start the 2017 racing season at Sydney Motor Sport Park in January next year.
To be contested across two, five hour segments, the 10 Hours of Sydney will be promoted by the Australian Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) and held for the first time between 13-15 January, with a view to establishing a long-term future as a marquee event for the Sydney circuit.
The unique format takes advantage of summer conditions by commencing the race on Saturday afternoon, running into the early twilight before halting for the evening.
A Saturday night ‘pit party’ BBQ will be held for competitors, officials and fans alike, before the race continues on Sunday morning for a further five hours of competition until the 10 hours are complete.
A full support race program will be included in an event program that will focus on maximising on-track action.
Join the Party!
IF YOU own and race one of the more than 200 cars that are eligible for the first ever running of the 10 hours of Sydney next January 13-15, you could be in luck.
That's because if you enter your car into the event before 16 December, 2016, you'll go into the draw to win the price of your entry fee back.
THE FIRST two entries into the inaugural 10 Hours of Sydney Production Sports and Production Touring endurance race gives a clear indication of the diversity the new event is set to enjoy.
A Lotus Elise entered by Glenn Townsend and Anthony Soole has been joined by a Ford Falcon GT, to be steered by Mick Benton and Hadrian Morall, as the first two to confirm their participation in the new January 13-15 event to be held at Sydney Motorsport Park.
