Racing sure to be Swift
AUSTRALIA’S newest one-make category is set to make its Queensland debut this weekend as the Australian Swift Racing Series which forms part of the latest round of the Shannons Nationals Motor Racing Championships.
Being installed with a roll cage and other technical and safety improvements that ensure the drivers are able to push these cars to the absolute limit, the Swift Series is continually providing excitement and enjoyment for not only the drivers, but the multitude of fans that are tuning in with this affordable motor racing option.
Of late, much interest has swelled in the series from drivers keen to get onboard with this exciting new opportunity including 1987 Bathurst 1000 winner Peter McLeod who took to the wheel at the last round at Eastern Creek Raceway in NSW.
With the current championship leader from New Zealand, Rex McCutcheon, 17, set to be on show along with fellow teenagers Morgan Haber and Brooke Leech, running alongside experienced competitors such as former V8 ute racers Steve Robinson and Rob Jarvis, this is assured to be a battle of the strongest in a race that will reward the most determined.
The Australian Swift Series has qualifying and a race on Saturday, with two races on Sunday morning at Morgan Park Raceway. Seven series are on at the weekend.
