The Sydney 10-hour endurance race for Production Touring and Production Sports Cars will be run for the first time in 2017 at Sydney Motor Sport Park.
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 in 2017, 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!
THE 10 HOURS of Sydney will be re-vamped and moved to a date later in 2017.
Event organisers decided to move the inaugural January running of the event for Production Sports & Touring Cars to a date later in the year, mainly to allow teams to properly prepare, and to take advantage of some new opportunities for competitors that will be announced soon.
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.
