2022 Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge calendar announced
Six national rounds across four states will make-up the 2022 calendar
Porsche Cars Australia has announced its 2022 Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge calendar, with the national Porsche one-make Series again featuring as one of the main attractions on Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships rounds, alongside categories from the Australian Racing Group (ARG).
With the all-new 992 generation Porsche 911 GT3 Cup making its debut in the Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia field this year, the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia field will see the introduction of the 991.2 generation previously campaigned by teams in the top-tier class over the last seasons.
The national Porsche series kicks-off in late May at the same venue it concluded in the Covid-halted 2021 season, Sydney Motorsport Park in NSW. Both Pro and Morris Finance Pro-Am competitors will be hoping for an interrupted season this year, following the last two heavily impacted seasons where travel restrictions brought about by the pandemic, meant that no champions could ultimately be crowned in either class.
The Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit then follows in late June, before teams head north to Queensland Raceway in early August for Round 3. Porsche customer teams return to Victoria following the halfway mark of the season for Round 4 at Sandown International Racecourse, before continuing to The Bend Motorsport Park in Tailem Bend for the penultimate round.
The season finale will be announced in the coming weeks.
