Classes Confirmed for Race of Stars

The Race of Stars is set to return in 2016 on October 14-16.

This year’s Race of Stars will once again see Australia’s top drivers, and many of the world’s best, converge at the Gold Coast Motorsport Training Centre at Pimpama on the Gold Coast.

The invitational event will again be a part of SuperFest kickstarting the excitement surrounding the Castrol Gold Coast 600 Supercar event and will showcase karting to the wider motorsport community and general public.

The 2016 Race of Stars has been expanded to a three-day format with practice on Friday October 14 followed by qualifying and heat races on Saturday October 15.  The final round of heats and finals will be held on Sunday October 16.

With this event being a true showcase for the sport of karting, the concept of the Race of Stars sees the top drivers in the KZ2, TaG 125, KA3 Senior, KA2, KA3 Junior, KA4 Junior and Cadet 12 classes suiting up.

Each class will only be filled up to track capacity, with the exception of TaG 125 where an oversubscribed format will be used.

Only invited drivers are eligible to compete and these drivers can only compete in the classes they have been invited in.  Currently all classes are either at, or close to, capacity with invited drivers.

As has been the case in previous years, there is no pre-event testing at the venue allowed by any invited competitor.

The Supplementary Regulations for this event will be available in the near future.  Entries will open shortly after.

Invited drivers will have recently received an invitation, competitors wishing to register their interest should click here and invitations will be distributed when places in their selected classes become available.
