GWR Set for Massive Weekend at SMP

The GWR Australia squad is set for one of its biggest-ever events at a race track, running nine cars across three categories at Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend.

The Sydney team has deployed every available resource to ensure the weekend runs smoothly, including a total of 22 pit crew to oversee operations across vehicles in the Radical Australia Cup, Australian Prototype Series and NSW Production Touring Cars Championship.

In the Radical Cup, reigning champion Chris Perini and runner-up Peter Paddon will resume their stoush from 2019, with Paddon slotting into a new Radical SR3 RSX. Paddon and Perini will do double-duty in the Prototype Series, as will Stephen Champion.

Making his national-level debut in the Prototype Series will be Jonathon Canavan, following on from his impressive performances in NSW Supersports and Challenge Bathurst last year. Sue Hughes will also contest the two Prototype races in her Radical.

The other GWR Radicals will concentrate their efforts on the Radical Australia Cup; Paul Braico returns to the category, while Kosta Pohorukov will be joined by Brad Shiels for the pair of 50-minute races.

This weekend’s GWR stable is completed by a pair of production cars. The RAM Motorsport Mercedes A45 AMG returns to the track in the hands of Michael Sheargold and Alex Bryden for the NSW PTC round, which consists of a pair of 20-minute sprint races and two one-hour enduros.

Fresh from his impressive result in the Wakefield 300 a fortnight ago, Brent Howard slots into his BMW M3, where he will be joined by Garth Walden. All the weekend’s action will be live streamed via Blend Line TV.
