ONTIC SPORTS ESTABLISHES OZENDURO CUP
• First event to be held in November, 2020
• Three events planned for 2021, additional dates to be confirmed
Ontic Sports is pleased to announce the addition of its OzEnduro Cup event concept to its growing motorsport portfolio.
The OzEnduro Cup has been designed for budget-minded competitors who are interested in competing in endurance events around the country which are focused on fun; low-cost vehicles; and comradery on and off the track.
OzEnduro Cup events will feature an endurance Regularity style format on the track under Australian Auto Sport Alliance (AASA) sanction, while competitors enjoy a relaxed and social atmosphere in the pits. Participating vehicles will be limited to those that have been mass produced and which have a redbook trade in value of $2,000 or below.
Following recent changes in the availability of these kinds of events, including the recently announced cancellation of the ‘Lemons Australia’ concept for 2021, Ontic Sports hopes the establishment of the OzEnduro Cup will help fill a void for budget-minded enduro competitors.
In 2020, the first OzEnduro Cup event will be held at Queensland Raceway across November 28-29. Entries will open soon and regulations will be published in the coming weeks.
For 2021, Ontic Sports plans to bring three OzEnduro Cup events to Queensland, with event dates to be published in the near future.
Ontic Sports is also speaking with facility managers in other states regarding the possibility of hosting OzEnduro Cup events at their venues in 2021 and looks forward to publishing additional dates in the future.
“Ontic Sports is very excited to announce the establishment of the OzEnduro Cup and looks forward to bringing a range of events to those enthusiasts who are interested in low-cost yet professionally-run motorsport, firstly in Queensland and hopefully eventually, around the country,” Ontic Sports Director, Iain Sherrin, said.
“At Ontic Sports we believe it is vital that grass roots motorsport is supported and that competitors are able to truly enjoy and exercise their low-cost cars at professionally-run events.”
“OzEnduro Cup participants will be competing to win, but they will also be treated to a relaxed and social atmosphere off the track with barbeques, social events and a focus on comradery,” Ontic Sports General Manager, Troy Williams, said.
“This concept has been trialled by Ontic Sports recently and the feedback we received was phenomenal – the participants really enjoyed spending time on track in their low-cost cars without the distraction of novelty inclusions, while keeping the fun atmosphere in the pits.”
AASA Business Development Manager, Stephen Whyte, said he was looking forward to seeing the new OzEnduro Cup concept in action.
“We are very excited to be involved with Ontic Sports and its fantastic new OzEnduro Cup concept,” Whyte said.
“Grassroots racing is so important in the Australian motorsport landscape and so we are very pleased that we can support Ontic Sports in providing this opportunity for competitors who love these kinds of events. We very much look forward to growing this relationship around the OzEnduro Cup and other Ontic Sports projects into the future – it is a very exciting time.”
