This annual motor racing competition attracts motor enthusiasts of all ages for non-stop racing action. With a range of events throughout the weekend, this is an event for car lovers to interact directly with the drivers, check out the flashy cars, and, of course, watch the best racing cars compete. There will be a range of different races and events this year, including: The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, which is a fast-paced race that has been one of the classics at every annual championship. Next, the Kumho Tyres V8 Touring Car Series, which continues to be one of the most popular races, mainly due to the V8 thrill. The Kerrick Sports Sedan Series is one of the oldest races still around, and has seen many famous drivers on the track over past years. The Radical Australia Cup is this year, the first to join the list of events at the Shannons National Motor Racing Championships 2011, and set to be a great crowd pleaser.
Of course, you can't have a National Motor Racing Championship without the Commodore Cup, one that has always been a 'doorhandle-to-doorhandle' favourite. The Australian Saloon Car Series showcases the six-cylinder Commodores and Falcons, one that has always been a favourite among the crowd as well. The Swift Series Australia event says it all: the time to test the power of the Suzuki Swift, and is also a recent addition to the lineup. The Formula 3 Australian Drivers Championship is one of the few internationally recognised racing events in the Shannons National Motor Racing Championships 2011, also set to attract many. The Formula Ford category includes many famous Formula 1 drivers, including Mark Webber. The Australian Manufacturers Championship hosts a wide range of vehicles that compete for a prestigious title. And last, but certainly not least, Superkarts Australia, one of the few karts that can outlap a V8 supercar.
All these events will be held on Brisbane's own Morgan Park Raceway, which is still Queensland's Premier Motor Sport Venue. So if you want to see some car racing action this weekend, head to Shannons National Motor Racing Championships 2011, one of the best motor racing events in Queensland. Entry is $15 per adult on Saturday, and $25 per adult on Sunday, with kids aged under 14 free. Alternatively, if you are planning to attend for both days, you can purchase a weekend pass for $30.
