“This will be an exceptional opportunity for motorsport fans to get up close and experience both disciplines across their respective categories. It promises to deliver a magnificent start to the 2021 Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships calendar.
“We are thrilled to be able to get such an event up and running that will provide a terrific day out for a very wide range of motorsport fans.
“There will of course be subtle changes required to the track and officials to meet the differing safety requirements, but all this will be factored into the schedule which will provide some really exciting on track action across the weekend at a terrific Victorian venue.”

“This is an idea that motorsport fans have wanted for some time, and together with Motorsport Australia there is a real passion from us to deliver cross discipline world-class event.
‘’When we bring our collective rider, driver and teams together in the same paddock, we know it will deliver the best on track action and a sensational fan experience.
‘’Not only will it be a great fan experience, but also a great learning experience for our respective organisations which will improve our own championships in the future.”
