Round 3 of Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge at Morgan Park in Queensland will now take place on 13-15 August, due to the current border restrictions.
Below is the Motorsport Australia announcement made this afternoon:
The upcoming Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships round at Morgan Park will now take place on 13-15 August.
Originally slated for 25-27 June, ongoing border restrictions mean the event will be pushed back until August to allow all competitors, fans and officials to attend the event in Queensland.
Those who have already purchased tickets for the event will be able to use their existing tickets on the new date. Current ticketholders do not need to do anything to have their existing tickets honoured for the new dates.
Motorsport Australia Director of Motorsport & Commercial Operations Michael Smith said it was pleasing that a new date for the event could be found.
“This round of the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships is one we have been looking forward to for some time, with a unique ‘country round’ feel expected at Morgan Park,” Smith said.
“We obviously are disappointed that we can’t hold this round of the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships in June, however we are delighted to be able to secure a new date in August to put on a great show for competitors and fans alike.
“Motorsport Australia is working closely with Porsche, the Australian Racing Group and all our loyal categories to work on a track schedule for the new date and will release details of the full line up shortly, but we are hopeful everyone can join us as originally planned.
“A big thank you must also go to the Southern Downs Regional Council and the Warwick and District Car Club for their ongoing support of this event and making sure it’s a success for Warwick and the surrounding areas.”
Existing categories will be given the option of taking part in the new dates, with the line up to be finalised in the coming weeks.
Tickets remain on sale for the new date, and can be purchased here. Any fans unable to make the new dates will also be able to request a refund.
