Sydney Motorsport Park completes 2022 schedule

THE Gulf Western Oil Touring Car Masters Series will return to Sydney Motorsport Park in 2022. 

The second round of the championship will be staged at the venue on May 27-29 this year following confirmation of a massive Shannons Motorsport Australia event today.

It will mark TCMs 14th visit to the popular venue in Sydney’s West, the 2021 event won by Ryan Hansford in his Holden Torana.

The world class venue will host the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships in May, with another busy schedule to showcase some of the most competitive and exciting motorsport categories in the country, thanks to the support of Destination NSW.

Australian Racing Group categories will be among those to feature at the event, including TCM, the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series and the VHT S5000 Australian Drivers Championship.

Nestled in Sydney’s thriving west, Sydney Motorsport Park offers up impressive facilities that allows for racing under lights, as well as the ability to accommodate a wide range of categories.

Spectators, teams, competitors, officials and media crews will flock to the west of Sydney for the event, making the most of the many impressive accommodation options on offer, as well as award winning restaurants, cafes and retail precincts all nearby.

At the venue, fans will be able to enjoy more activations and activities than ever as part of the event, with full access to the pit paddock and the chance to meet the stars and cars of each category up close.

Tickets for the event will go on sale soon through the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships website.

“Sydney Motorsport Park is one of the most popular venues on our calendar, and it’s fantastic that our suite of Australian Racing Group categories will race there in May this year,” said Australian Racing Group CEO, Matt Braid.

“The facilities at SMSP are among the best in the country. Our competitors love it and the teams and sponsors enjoy the hospitality.

“The circuit holds a special place in ARG’s history, having been the site for our first TCR Australia round back in 2019. That was a significant moment for the organisation, so we have found memories, and look forward to making more in 2022 and beyond.”
