Great field revs up for Manufacturers Championship bid

WHEN the Australian Manufacturers Championship is staged at Queensland Raceway this weekend, it will feature its biggest and best field of the year.

Twenty-one cars and a who's who of the sport are set to race at the Ipswich facility from tomorrow until Sunday.

This weekend's action will also see the 35 racers enjoying their first sprint round of the year with two 200km races to unfold, including the 'Fight in the Night' on Saturday evening.

Australian Manufacturers Championship category manager Rob Curkpatrick said hotly contested battles across the field can be expected in the penultimate round of the 2014 championship chase.

"In every class there are hard chargers to be found and with Class B racer Grant Sherrin currently leading the outright title points there is a battle afoot," Curkpatrick said.

Leading the field to Queensland Raceway will be last year's QR round winner Garry Holt. He is also the reigning outright AMCHAMP champion.

The Eastern Creek Karts Mitsubishi Evo X driver will be joined by Stuart Kostera, with whom he took the round three victory last month.

Class A fans can keep an eye on the Melbourne Performance Centre Evo X and CXC Mitsubishi Evo IX of Robert and Shane Marshall and Dylan Thomas.
