This meeting is the first of 5 race meetings being promoted by PIARC (Phillip Island Auto Racing Club) in 2017, and one of 9 for the year with Club involvement.
PIARC spokesman Geoff Bull says the club is hoping for almost 50 entries each for both the Excels and Improved Production Categories. These categories continue to blow us away with their great popularity with both competitors and enthusiast spectators.
Also the popular Saloon Cars have been working hard at increasing their entries for this their second year since gaining official series status in 2016 and heading towards their Nationals scheduled for Island Magic 2017 on November 25th and 26th.
It is also round 2 of 5 for CAMS Victorian State Circuit Racing Championships being conducted as usual at both Phillip Island and Sandown throughout the year and also in June at the Winton circuit near Benalla.
