The Shannons Nationals has released its full event line-ups for 2015, featuring 13 categories across its nine rounds.

The AMChamps, Formula 3, Formula Ford, Sports Sedan, Super 6, Kumho V8, GT3 Cup Challenge and Sports Racer categories continue to provide the bulk of the action, each running solely with the Shannons Nationals next season.

The line-up meanwhile confirms that the Nationals will host four rounds of a new class titled the IROC Challenge Series.

The brainchild of Rowan Harman’s Motoring Events Management, which promotes a number of rallies around the country, the series will pay homage to the original IROC formula of the 1970s, featuring classic 3.0 litre RS specification 911s.

The new IROC class will aim to recreate the feel of the 1970s American version

IROC will run at the Mallala, Winton, Phillip Island and Wakefield Park meetings, while organisers hope to add a further two rounds at state level meetings.

The Carrera Cup and the Australian GT Championship will meanwhile again team with the Nationals for a single outing at Phillip Island, highlighted by the latter’s 101 lap endurance event.

The Radical Australia Cup has scaled back to just two rounds with the Nationals, having featured at four events in 2014.

The Australian Superkart Championship and PRB Clubmans also make cameo appearances at two and one rounds respectively.
