MRF TYRE SYDNEY 360 – AUSTRALIAN PRODUCTION CARS OPENING ROUND LIVE

There’s just 38 days until the MRF Tyre’s Sydney 360, the opening round of the 2019 MRF Tyres Australian Production Car Championship.

The event at Sydney Motorsport Park will also play host to rounds of the Australian Radical Cup, TA2 Racing Championship and NSW ProdSports Endurance Championship after their season openers at Bathurst supporting the Bathurst 12hour.

In 2018 the Australian Production Car Championship went down the wire, with multiple pairings able to take home the crown on the final day of racing. Ultimately, in a day of high drama at Phillip Island it was the combination of Pollicina and Simpson who took title honors in their MoComm Motorsports Communications Lotus Exige.

It was a battle of the Lotus at the final round in 2018. One that looks set to continue throughout the 2019 season.

After a thrilling end to the 2018 season at SMSP, Radical Australia cup will return to the Western Sydney venue for the first of two hit-outs in season 2019. While the championship will see its opening round at Bathurst, there’s no doubt that endurance racing at Sydney will throw up its own surprises as Kim Burke seeks to defend his maiden crown.

Joining the program for the SMSP round will be the TA2 Racing Championship. As TransAm continues to grow in Australia they return to Sydney Motorsport Park after Ashley Jarvis secured the title at the venue in 2018. With a strong field lead by the likes of Aaron Seton, George Miedecke and Hugh McAlister, there is no doubt that racing will be as intense as ever.

 

Added to this lineup will also be the NSW Production Sports Car Championship for the first round of their 2019 season and the all new Endurance Championship for 2019.  We’ve seen a lot of great racing from NSW ProdSports on Blend Line TV in previous seasons, with grid sizes swelling across 2018 for their mixture of sprint and endurance races. No doubt the opening round will produce some great racing with Sydney Motorsport Park lending itself to great battles between horsepower and handling in all divisions.

You’ll be able to see every race of the weekend live here on Blend Line TV, as well as on YouTube, with plenty of social media clips to keep you entertained as well. So make sure to tune in so you don’t miss a moment of action at what is set to be a huge weekend of  motorsport.

2018 HQ Holden 4 Hour

The 2018 HQ Holden 4 Hour saw 25 teams take to the grid for the traditional season ending endurance race. Split into twin two hour segments across a weekend, this event always provides plenty of track time.

After individual qualifying sessions for Driver A and B drivers,  a top ten shootout for pole was used again in 2018. This served to jumble the field further with Ryan Woods putting the #87 Glen McDonald/Reddy Roasts Car on pole, the midday heat seeing times increase from the morning session.

Four hours of hard racing lay ahead in incredibly hot conditions and Blend Line TV was there to capture all of the action. Enjoy below either the condensed hour of highlights from the weekend, or sit back and enjoy the full four hours of raw racing footage.

The 2018 HQ Holden 4 Hour is proudly supported by Specco VHT and Furntree Gully Motor Group.

HQ 4 Hour & Excels Endurance

This weekend it’s the final weekend of racing for the HQ Holdens and Hyundai Excels with the pair of categories undertaking a weekend of endurance at Winton Motor Raceway.

The traditional HQ Holden 4 Hour will be held over two segments, with the first two hours being held late Saturday afternoon, before the run to the flag on Sunday. With expected warm weather it will no doubt be a tough weekend of racing for the HQs, with driver changes and a mandatory wheel change set to bring the teams into the race equation as well.

Joining the HQs the Hyundai Excels will see a large field of cars take to Winton across the weekend with a pair of 90 minute endurance races. Each race will have it’s own qualifying and Top Ten shootout in the morning, no doubt mixing up the order of each race.

We’ll have all the highlights from both events coming soon on Blend Line TV and plenty of social media updates across the weekend.
