Melbourne. Following the cancellation of the Shannons Nationals event that was due to take place from the 24-26 June at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit earlier this year, Porsche Cars Australia is now pleased to confirm that the final round of the 2022 Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia Series will take place at the Phillip Island Auto Racing Club’s Island Magic event from 25 and 26 November later this year.
Round 6 of the Porsche National one-make Series will see previous generation Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars enjoy a 50-minute practice and 20-minute qualifying session on Friday 25 November as well as three 20-minute sprint races on the Saturday 26 November, to conclude the 2022 Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia season.
Broadcast details and coverage of the event will be announced in the coming weeks.
Barry Hay, PCA Motorsport Manager: “Phillip Island is a fantastic circuit and very popular among our Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia competitors and teams. We are naturally very happy that we will be able to host the final round of the 2022 Series at the Island Magic event later this year and would like to thank the PIARC team and event organisers for the help and assistance in accommodating us, for what will be a very exciting climax to our 2022 season.”
Phillip Island Auto Racing Club (PIARC) President, Nick Scarcella: “We welcome Porsche Cars Australia and the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia to PIARC’s Island Magic joining our existing categories for this signature event. This annual event enjoyed by spectators, competitors, and officials alike in this year’s event, will be a highlight in the club’s 70th anniversary year.”
“We look to a great final round that will no doubt crown a worthy winner of one of Australia’s most sought-after National Series, at one of the world’s most picturesque circuits in Phillip Island. We look forward seeing one and all in November, it will be magic.”
