We’re less than 2 weeks away from the start of the 2018 V8X Supercars Season!
With over 115 Drivers now Registered to compete in 2018, the V8X Supercars is the pinnacle of our motorsports platter. We’re very happy to say we have our first Sponsorship heading into the 2018 V8X Supercars Season with Pagnian Advanced Simulation coming on-board for our upcoming year!
13 Rounds…. 18 Races…. 9 Months of action! This year will have it all!
We’ve seen an enormous increase in new members ahead of the upcoming season, many of which are entering as teams in what is arguably now Australia & New Zealand’s biggest Supercars Championship on Forza Motorsport 7!
Already in our Pre-Season Practice events we’ve seen drivers show their quality and capabilities on the circuit, some with very promising potential going into the Round 1 Super Sprint at Silverstone in a week’s time. We had 35 drivers take part in a practice event at Silverstone in the wet only a week ago. With a mixture of new and old faces on the grid, we were unsure how everyone would go especially on the damp track and in unassisted V8’s. However, the session couldn’t have gone any better, with plenty of action both up and down the grid.
Mark Pretty (HKS Mr Bucket) is one to watch out for from early efforts. He was the only driver to consistently battle with 2017 Champion, Jarrod Lamprey.
Among other things we see some teams from 2017 come back and expand for 2018, such as the FRCA Team who have doubled in size since their debut season. We’ve also seen former teams combine with Western Racing Group and Snooks Murdock Motorsports combining to make Trans-Australian Motorsport. They’ll be pushing for consistent Lobby A starts throughout the year.
While having familiar faces come back year after year, we’ve had our largest influx to date of new teams entering such as the largest Garage to take to the community in Premier Motorsports who have a whopping 8 cars lined up for the V8X Supercars in 2018!
Another notable mention is the Calendar changes specifically with the V8X Enduro Cup midway through the season. For the very first time, Virginia International Raceway will begin our Enduro Cup campaign hosting Round 8 of the Season for what will be the new ‘Retro Round’.
We’ll also see Mugello and Suzuka on the calendar in 2018!
We cannot wait to hit the track in just over a week’s time. Make sure if you want to get involved that you head on over to V8XSeriesOnlineMotorsport.com to get signed up!
