National Sports Sedan Series
The DEA Performance Sports Sedan Series is arguably the most dynamic and exciting motor racing category in the country.
The noise and the serious horsepower from the mid mounted engines of these ‘winged and wild’ racers is awe inspiring. Built and raced by a dedicated group of devotees chasing the ultimate in power to weight performance, they share a unique place in Australian motor racing heritage.
Formula 4 has been developed and certified by the FIA as the pre-eminent open-wheel development category across the globe; the critical step between elite junior karting, Formula 3 and ultimately Formula 1. The over-arching aim of this category is to unearth the next generation of Australian drivers who will make it to the world stage.
Improved Production offers plenty of variety and some of the best racing available. As the name suggests the class is modeled on production based touring cars that have been “improved” for racing purposes.
Many different makes of cars make up Improved Production grids including Mazdas, BMWs, Toyotas, Hondas, Nissans, Holdens and Fords.
