V8 Supercar Calender 2005.

The V8 Supercar Championship Series will return to the world class Phillip Island Circuit next year as the final round on the calendar.

Australian Vee Eight Supercar Championship Series Chairman Tony Cochrane announced live on Network 10 this afternoon that Phillip Island was one of the 13 locations hosting an event in 2005.

The V8 Supercar Championship Series has not raced at the circuit since 2003. Unlike previous years, AVESCO will manage and promote the Phillip Island event.

The event will be held in the last weekend of November. The 2005 calendar has been shortened slightly as part of an ongoing commitment to make the sport more attractive to spectators and supporters.

The decision not to race at the venue in 2004 created much controversy. At the time AVESCO was concerned with circuit design issues and falling attendance levels over a period of time.

AVESCO is satisfied that by making the event the last round of the series when better weather is expected, significant circuit upgrades and plans for further development will redress these issues.

“The circuit is now under new ownership and the Linfox Corporation has invested a significant amount of money to address concerns we had with the design of the track,” Mr Cochrane said.

“This is one of the world’s greatest road racing circuits and we always knew that. We were always working towards a goal to return there and the new management has ensured this has occurred.

“There are still substantial works to be completed by the end of next year that will ensure it is a fantastic venue for our sport.”

The V8 Supercar Championship Series will stage events across Australia, New Zealand and China in 2005. There remains an even spread across the Australian states to guarantee the sport’s truly national status.

“This adds to the fact that our series will expand into a truly international sport with the addition of Shanghai to the calendar in June, an event which all Australians will be proud of,” Mr Cochrane said.

“Our growing international recognition is further reflected by the fact that our championship is broadcast to 70 countries and some 800 million people across the world.”

The most noticeable changes in 2005, apart from the Phillip Island announcement, are the forward movement of New Zealand by a fortnight and Perth by a month.

These decisions were based on trying to ensure better weather and best fit with locked in dates such as the Australian Grand Prix and the Clipsal 500 at the start of the season.



2005 V8 Supercar Championship Series Calendar:

Non/Champ Mar 4-6 Australian Grand Prix Melbourne

Round 1: Mar 17-20 Clipsal 500 Adelaide

Round 2: Apr 15-17 V8 International New Zealand

Round 3: May 6-8 Barbagallo Perth

Round 4: May 27-29 Eastern Creek Sydney

Round 5: June 10-12 Shanghai China

Round 6: July 1-3 Hidden Valley Darwin

Round 7: July 22-24 Queensland Raceway Ipswich

Round 8: Aug 12-14 Oran Park Sydney

Round 9: Sep 9-11 Sandown 500 Melbourne

Round 10: Oct 6-9 Bathurst 1000 Bathurst

Round 11: Oct 20-23 V8 Supercar Challenge Surfers Paradise

Round 12: Nov 11-13 Symmons Plains Tasmania

Round 13: Nov 25-27 BigPond Grande Finale Phillip Island

Not sure exactly where the NZ round will be held,but I'm glad that Phillip Island is back on the calender.I still think that the F1 GP round should have some championship points on offer.Does anybody else agree?

Re: V8 Supercar Calender 2005.

The aussie racing cars will be on the support program for rounds 1, 4, 7, 8, 9, 11 & 12.

I'm assuming the Utes will be on the program for a large portion of the rounds next year.

Yep, did that
Signed up now...

2005 should be another great year. It'll piss me off that we dont get to see them race before March. I'll have to dig out all the old tapes for the off season.

Good Idea sticking it at the end.
