The calendar has been updated earlier today confirming Round 2, 3 (Willowbank and Calder rounds) and the Grand Finals.
Just to shine some light on the calendar, as several people have been questioning why it hasn’t been confirmed, and why its taking so long, makign suggestion on where to go, etc….
Setting a calendar this late (Nov on) is an extremely difficult task given events have been planned/booked for all the race tracks mid-late last year. This in addition to the original dates that were drafted were changed. We have been in discussion with the Tracks for some months now, and could not agree to the dates suggested – as you would not have been happy as they were clearly unworkable, this impacted on every other date and hence the delay.
Please keep in mind with any date, we always try to stay away from any similar/clashing event at least two weeks away, give ourselves at least 4 weeks between our events, try to book a date that is in the peak weather @ the location booked, not clash with any other major event in that area (ie, major car shows, Speedway, Powercruise, etc). So when you add all those filters in the mix there arent too many available dates on anyones calendar let alone in the order we would like – ESPECIALLY post November when all the bookings have been made.
Rest assured that we are trying to make the best out of the situation we have, and really do think we have got to a pretty good outcome having race events in all parts of the country (yes maybe even PERTH to be confirmed), racing back at Calder, a 2-3 month break and the finals in central Sydney all during 2015.

Pete can you confirm the date for Calder is Sunday the 26th of April ?January 14, 2015 at 10:39 am #12665
Yep, as the calendar says Sunday 26th, which is the Anzac day weekend….
Being April, we would start earlier in the day and aim to finish a little earlier than the typical summers events.

Thanks, just wanted to clarify is was the Sunday.January 20, 2015 at 9:10 am #12667
Will there be a Sydney event in mid may as in the past 3 years? Its the best time of year to set pbs records were set at that event every year and its comfortable weather to race in that time of yearJanuary 20, 2015 at 10:58 am #12668
anarcy racing NO there will not be a SD event mid year.
The calendar is set as is, with the exception of Benaraby that may change by a week either way due to the clash with the Jamboree at Willowbank….
