An offseason gallery of Australian Motorsport


In today’s post a former karter has jumped behind the lens and we have a look at his view of Australian Motorsport.  Sit back and enjoy Michael Ford’s photographic touch.


The once dominant Audi teams had suffered at Bathurst due to a lack of straight line speed compared to the Ferraris and Mercedes.  That being said, the R8 is still a popular car in Australia


The Ginetta G50 GT4 has been a great addition in Australia with a few running round the GT series and the Bathurst 12 Hour


Shane van Gisbergen electrified the McLaren GT3 at Bathurst making the car do things it was never meant to do. Andrew Kirkaldy and Klark Quinn were also driving the car that not only lasted the distance (rare for 12 hours and a McLaren) but only just missed a podium


The Phoenix Audi squad put in a great effort at Bathurst but could reach the lofty heights that brought them the win a couple of years back


Australia’s V8 Supercar marketplace has a long line with the third tier category racing old main game cars.  It makes for a great place for fans to see the cars more and up and comers or gentlemen drivers get behind the wheel of these beasts


The second level Porsche series makes for great racing and a great  national series for drivers to learn their sportscar trade


The Australian Manufactures Championship is truly the closest thing to a road race car category and has a great rivalries up and down the field


The Australian Manufacturers Championship has made endurance racing their own filling the season with long distance races around the country


The Australian Formula Ford Championship was on its last legs in 2013 and a move to the Shannons Nationals revived the series in 2014.  While Jordan Lloyd wasn’t able to win the Championship this year, he fought to the end.


John Modystach has been a long time driver in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, often dominating weekends in the category.


Jeff Bobik has taken a second place in the Porsche GT3 Cup Championship in the past – and made his way to a few starts in the Australian Carrera Cup
