For the second time this year, the Phillip Island Auto Racing Club (PIARC) will host a round of the 2022 Motorsport Australia Victorian State Circuit Racing Championships and will have a massive entry list to accommodate.
Around 230 cars across 12 categories have confirmed to line up this weekend at the famous Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit with fans to be treated to a spectacle of non-stop racing action.
All the Championships’ regular categories will be on show across both days including Sports Cars and Sedans, Historic Touring Cars, Saloon Cars, Porsche 944, HQ Holdens and the BMW E30 Series.
Boasting the largest entry list for the weekend though will be the Improved Productions, with the huge field of 36 cars to do battle, while the Hyundai Excels again have an entry list in excess of 30.

The Formula Ford grid will be the next largest with 24 cars to make up the category, although it will be split with cars from both the Formula Ford and Formula Ford 1600s classes.
Like Formula Ford, both the MG and British Sports Cars and Formula Vee class will also enjoy a popular turnout of around 20 cars.
Club President Nick Scarcella was looking forward to a huge weekend of motorsport.
“This premier state championship round is back at full strength at Australia’s most picturesque circuit, after somewhat constrained rounds in 2019 and 2020, followed by a great showing in 2021,” Scarcella said.
“To have such a big entry list for a state round is a fantastic achievement and it’s a great response from competitors for showing their support in the championships.
“We began celebrating our 70th anniversary with a closed race meeting in March, but we are opening for this weekend and the club is hopeful we will get a big turnout of fans.
“There will be quite a good mix of cars and categories there too so I am sure spectators will get quite the show to enjoy.”
The racing action on both Saturday and Sunday will run from 9am and 5pm AEST and each category will get up between three to five races, along with practice and qualifying sessions.
Tickets for the event can only be purchased online with interested attendee’s able to purchase them here.
