AWC Return as Naming Rights Sponsor of Race Tasmania

One of Tasmania’s leading civil contractors, AWC, have today announced that they are returning for a third consecutive year as title sponsor of Race Tasmania.

AWC was established in 1991 and today employs more than 100 people throughout Tasmania. The family-oriented business have been long-time supporters of local motorsport and have supported various drivers over the years, notably including local Launceston driver Lochie Dalton who last year raced to a runner-up finish in the Trans Am Series.

Returning for a fourth year, Race Tasmania has grown to become a major highlight on the Tasmanian sporting calendar as some of Australia’s top motorsport categories descend on Symmons Plains Raceway.

The Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series headlines the event alongside Trans Am, with the Precision National Sports Sedans joining the line-up for the first time in 2024. As with previous events, the local stars of Tasmanian motorsport are provided the opportunity to shine at a major event with Tassie Tin Tops and Tasmanian Hyundai Excel Series also featuring at the event.

The event this year takes place from March 15-17 and hosts the second round of the season for TCR Australia and Trans Am, and the opening round for the National Sports Sedans. The event is also part of the Shannons SpeedSeries.

Tickets for the event are on sale now, via the Race Tasmania website. All the action will also be live and free on the Seven Network.

“AWC are pleased to continue our association with motorsport, of which there has been a long association,” said Booth.

“The event has grown exceptionally over the past four years and we are proud to be a part of Race Tasmania again in 2024, and supporting the motorsport community. It’s great to give young drivers opportunities, as many do with this event and the exposure the local categories receive.

“TCR and Trans Am are both very popular, and have proven a huge drawcard for the local community, which we are excited to see again in just over a month’s time,” concluded Booth.
