Bold new era for Shannons SpeedSeries
This year’s SpeedSeries will get underway with a new look and a new naming rights partner.
Shannons Insurance, a long-time supporter of motorsport in Australia, will be the event’s key partner, with a massive eight round calendar promising to deliver a year like no other.
The Shannons SpeedSeries will also welcome a new logo as the events begin their next chapter as a collaborative partnership between Motorsport Australia and the Australian Racing Group.
The new logo features bold lines and sleek curves synonymous with speed and precision and will feature across all collateral and broadcast assets on Stan Sport.
The 2023 Shannons SpeedSeries will begin with the opening round, AWC Race Tasmania at Symmons Plains. A further seven rounds make up the full calendar, including a round of the TCR World Tour, which will debut in Australia for the first time this year.
Tickets for all Shannons SpeedSeries events are available at motorsporttickets.com.au.
All rounds will be broadcast live on Stan Sport, with three hours of free-to-air coverage across the Nine network on Saturday of each Shannons SpeedSeries event.
Stan Sport will continue to offer a seven-day free trial to all new subscribers, which can be obtained here.

“We’re thrilled to be continuing our partnership with Motorsport Australia and the 2023 Shannons SpeedSeries,” Jreige said.
“Our relationship with Motorsport Australia has been a successful one for many years and has provided Motorsport Australia licence holders with a number of benefits as well as supporting national motorsport events through our partnership as naming rights partner of the Shannons Nationals and Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships.
“The new look brand for the Shannons SpeedSeries also provides some extra excitement for everyone involved in these events heading into the new season.”
Motorsport Australia CEO, Eugene Arocca:
“A big thank you must go to Simon and the team at Shannons for their ongoing support,” Arocca said.
“From the Shannons Nationals to the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships and now the Shannons SpeedSeries, we’re grateful for Shannons’ continued support of these wonderful events.
“Add to that a new look logo in 2023, and a world class broadcast on Stan Sport and the future of the Shannons SpeedSeries looks extremely strong.
“We’re excited to be working closely with the Australian Racing Group to deliver these events throughout 2023.”
