“We’re going down for our fourth year of AWC Race Tasmania. It all started with Garry (Rogers) being so enthusiastic about Tasmania, and the whole event was born of the back of that,” said Rogers.

“Returning to Baskerville, we’re really looking to promote the local categories and especially so with the prize money that’s been put up. The demonstrations from TCR and Trans Am will add some grunt and some more excitement, and will be a great pre-curser to Race Tasmania.

“The first round of the season for TCR and Trans Am was very exciting, and that’ll continue at Symmons Plains which was always provides hard and close racing,” concluded Rogers.
