Exciting 2012 calendar announced…we are going Enduro!

NSW Production Touring recently announced a value packed calendar for 2012.

“We are very excited about the year we have put together for our competitors. We have 3 sprint rounds to start the year and we then move into the Endurance part of the season with 4 Enduros run over 3 rounds.” Pres. Murphy recently announced.
Up for grabs in 2012 is the MoComm Cup which will be awarded to the winner of the endurance portion of the season. MoComm has donated a magnificent trophy which can be won from any class in the category. Each Enduro will have 2 qualifying sessions, 2 sprint races, a Top 10 shootout and the 1 Hour Enduro. Our usual 1 Hour venue at Wakefield will see the cars twice this year as we get a double dose of our favourite
event. But of particular interest this year,  is the Winton Round where we will contest 2 Enduros in on the same weekend in September. On the undercard to the Supertrucks, the weekend promises a huge amount of track time at around the same entry as normal state round.  With 4 Enduros in one season and the ability to use a co driver in each of them, we have constructed a very cost effective championship. Pres Murphy summarised the intent behind the new calendar and direction of the committee “We are about cost effective, sustainable racing in a friendly but competitive environment. We have gone the Endurance route to give the competitors great value for money racing where you get the opportunity to apply some strategy and racecraft over a protracted period. Also, we encourage the use of co drivers to share costs and introduce new drivers to our category.”

All in all an awesome program is ready to go in 2012!
