An exciting new race format will form part of the 2020 Australian Motor Racing Series calendar, bringing together the best young talent from around Australia.
FEATURING TOYOTA 86 ROAD CARS CONVERTED TO RACE CARS!
How does the new race format work?
The A.R.S Series will race up to twenty Toyota 86 road cars which have been converted into race cars.
Each car will be of identical specification with up to 17 cars racing on each race day with 3 spare cars made available.
Each driver will have their car randomly drawn upon arrival and the car they race will change from round to round to avoid any preconception of mechanical advantage.
No army of pit crews will be allowed and just one person will be allowed to communicate with the driver via radio during sessions and perform basic checks on the car between each session
Basic overview of series
- Driver pays per round
- 5 round series
- Drivers to be under the age of 25yrs
- Drivers to receive windscreen strip signage only – this will be fitted prior to each round
- Three sets of tyres for the 5 rounds. Tyres to be marked and allocated to each driver
- Drivers will draw at random car numbers at the end of each round for the next round. No driver to have the same car twice

- Tyre pressures will be set all the same by our mechanics
- Data will be available via a mychron system so drivers can start learning about data

If there is a driver who for example dive bombs another driver and tears a corner off, the A.R.S Series will not repair the vehicle at the track and that will be the end of that drivers weekend. This allows us to control driving standards and teach young drivers that there is repercussions from their actions, and prevents people simply paying a bill and getting back on the track. But if there is a mechanical failure that is not the driver’s fault. Series organisers will endeavour to replace the vehicle for them to complete the round.
