Heritage Touring Cars will join a growing supports line up for V8 Supercars' season ending NRMA Sydney 500 next month.
The category featuring classic touring cars from Group A and Group C eras will take part in a race on each day of the meeting at Sydney's Olympic Park from December 5-7.
Heritage Touring Car racing caters for two distinct periods of touring car competition.
Group A covers the international era between 1985 and 1992 while Group C caters for machines from 1973 to 1984, featuring locally- grown products from Holden and Ford.
“This category is all about highlighting the history of our sport,” says Heritage Touring Cars Director Ed Singleton.
“We have a great cross section of passionate car owners covering both the Group A and C eras of touring car racing history and a wide variety of cars of all makes and models within the class.
“The opportunity to demonstrate their capabilities around the streets of Sydney is one we're really looking forward to. We'll be bringing back plenty of golden memories for many fans.”
The Dunlop Series and V8 Ute Racing Series will both hold their final rounds of the season at the event.
A non-championship V8 Touring Car round is also expected to be a late addition to the bill following the recent withdrawal of Formula 3.
The third-tier V8 Supercars category is set to join its two bigger brothers at a race meeting for the first time following a push from a number of competitors.
At least 18 cars are expected to front for the races, which will be run independently of category manager and Shannons Nationals director Rob Curkpatrick.
