The Sandown round will be held on the same weekend as the V8 Supercar Championship event at Symmons Plains in Tasmania. It is the only instance where there will be a clash between a Kumho Series round and a V8 Supercar fixture.

“In some instances we have had dates locked in with circuits for six months and it has been a challenge to avoid significant clashes says category manager Rob Curkpatrick.

“We have worked hard to make sure that any conflicts with other events will not adversely affect categories volunteer officials or the promoters local market.

“There is a great willingness from everyone involved to continue to build our individual events and date equity is key to that.

“Its no secret is has been a tough year for the Kumho Series with low car counts but were working hard to ensure next season sees more cars on the grid.
