The Australian Formula Ford Series will be on the program at AMRS Round 1

The entry lists for most of the 10 categories which make up this weekend’s inaugural round of the Australian Motor Racing Series have been released.

The new national series, owned by Benalla Auto Club (BAC), kicks off its first season at BAC’s Winton Motor Raceway with Round 1 of the Australian Formula Ford Series headlining the bill.

Last year’s Formula Ford runner-up Cameron Shields will be in the field, as will a four-car contingent from Sonic Motor Racing including 2017 race winner Hunter McElrea.

Shields and Harri Jones will be on double-duty with the Australia Formula 3 Premier Series also running at Winton, its first of six rounds for 2018.

The TA2 Performax Cup starts its first national series with a 14-car field headlined by multiple race winner Russell Wright and former Super2 Series competitor Craig Harris.

Aussie Racing Utes, the new series for cars which ran in the now defunct V8 Ute Racing Series, will run as part of a combined grid with the Victorian Tin Top Series, Group 4, and Super 6 Touring Cars.

Also on the program are Mazda RX8 Cup, Legend Cars, BMW Drivers Cup/IROC Challenge, Miniature Race Cars, Stock Cars/Extreme TT, and Victorian Superkarts, the latter of which will feature Brisbane Lions three-time AFL Premiership player Jason Akermanis.

In total, over 180 cars are set to take to the track across Saturday and Sunday, with the latter day’s action streamed live by Blend Line TV.
