VIC STATE RACE SERIES TITLES ON THE LINE AT PHILIP ISLAND THIS WEEKEND


Published at 9/22/2022

This weekend will see racing at the final round of the Victorian State Race Series run at Philip Island September 23-25th.

With the series champions of several classes still to be decided, the fifth and final round of the Victorian State Race Series will be hosted by the Mini Car Club and will see close to 200 entries.

Big fields have been entered in most classes including-Formula Ford, Formula Vee, Hyundai Excel’s, Improved Production, Sports Sedans, Saloon Cars, Sports Cars, Historic Touring Cars, Porsche 944 Challenge and BMW E30s.

After four rounds of close racing, top spot is still up for grabs in many of the categories and as such expect plenty of drama to close out the 2022 season.

In Formula Ford, Matthew Hillyer is 46 points clear of Jordyn Sinni, while just two points separate Richard Davison and Brendan Jones in the Formula Ford 1600 category.

The same margin splits Andrew Magilton and Andrew McLeod in the HQ Holdens.

A nail biter is also expected in Formula Vee – Heath Collinson and ex Super3 Series racer Reef McCarthy will duke it out for the crown.

Likewise, the winner of Sports Cars and Sports Sedans will be finalised at the final event, the former category taking on a 40-minute race on the Sunday.

The rest of the categories will have qualifying on Saturday morning, an eight-lap race on Saturday afternoon, the same on Sunday morning and then a nine-lap encounter to finish on Sunday afternoon.

VSRS representative Michael Holloway says the 2022 finale will be one to remember.

“I am expecting over 220 entries and it’s going to be pretty exciting seeing so many title battles decided over the weekend,” Holloway told AUTO ACTION.

“The canteens will be open, access to the pits and the paddock will be free and the Visitors Centre at the racetrack will be open as well.

“Phillip Island is a fantastic venue for spectators, with great viewing from everywhere including the top of the pit buildings.”
