Not much talk about this event on here just yet.
As a part of the Shannon's Nationals, the Sleuth has put together a little support event.

Held on Aug 31-Nov 1.
All Supercars, Super Tourers, Future Tourers are eligible, along with some invited cars.

Winner of the weekend will also receive the Garth Tander Trophy - interestingly the most successful driver of the Project Blueprint era (34 wins).
I thought Project Blueprint was 2003-12, but Sleuth is quoting 2003-08?

Ky or Supercars13, any interesting stats from that Blueprint-era? or anything from the cars attending (1992-).
Anyone going? Sure this would be right up your alley Sonic?

Yup I will be there for the weekend Sman.

Prob be the highlight of the weekend I reckon if enough folk get involved. Would be cool if it could become a yearly fixture at Winton.

It seems that the Project Blueprint cars being used in the event are from those first six years of the regulations, which is why those numbers were used. It is interesting that the BF is eligible but the VE is not, considering they were introduced at the same time. Whincup is by far the most successful Blueprint driver if all ten seasons are considered (64 race wins to Tander's 46 and Lowndes' 38).

Top five race winners from 2003-2008:
Tander 34
Ambrose 25
Skaife 22
Whincup 22
Lowndes 20

Ambrose is easily the most impressive with 25 in three seasons. The interesting one is Skaife; even though those years are regarded as troublesome for him, he was still able to rack up a good number of race wins.

Skaife was regularly fast over that final 6 years - just very inconsistent.

A shame it is clashing with the Sydney Masterblast/Muscle Car Masters

The V8 Sleuth Touring Car Classic is surely more suited to the Masters than a Shannons round?

Noonz is most likely doing it that way to gauge interest before taking it to a bigger event like the Muscle Car Masters.

It'd be nice to see some surviving AUSCARS and NASCARs as part of the event.

There is a push to get these cars recognised as a historic class, but they are a tad too modern to be recognised as as such. However, over in Europe, there is a modern "historic" class for Sportscars, complete with Peugeot 908s, Audi R10s, Oreca Dodge Vipers and such.
