After a mid-season battle of endurance that saw reigning Australian GT champion Geoff Emery and team-mate Garth Tander crowned champions in the 2019 CAMS Australian Endurance Championship, the series returns to sprint format this weekend with the Gold Coast hosting the penultimate round of the season alongside Supercars, with two 60-minute races on the beachside circuit, the first for AGT since 2012.
Australian GT have revealed a comprehensive race calendar for the 2020 season, a calendar that includes events for the CAMS Australian GT Championship, the CAMS Australian Endurance Championship, a dedicated Championship for GT4 cars that also includes stand-alone events, and the pending Pirelli AGT SuperSprint at Mount Panorama at season’s end, a circuit that will play a significant role in the new season calendar with Bathurst appearing four times next year.
Australian GT have unveiled the first of their dates for the 2020 season, with three events scheduled for the CAMS Australian Endurance Championship, kicking off with the Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour in late January.
Geoff Emery, team-mate Garth Tander and Audi Sport have prevailed to claim their maiden Australian Endurance Championship title after an epic battle across three one hour legs at Melbourne’s notorious Sandown Raceway. Challenging weather that saw all four seasons within hours of each other, technical failures, pit stop infringements and spins, it had it all, but after the dust had settled no-one could deny the popular local team from claiming their third national title in as many years.
