2020 Season – Round 1 Preview! Presented by Smiths TMP

February 13th, 2020|0 Comments

The first round of the 2020 Porsche 944 Challenge is set to be held this weekend at the Sandown Motor Raceway as part of the Victorian State Race Series and will be presented by Smiths TMP. Over 250 cars are competing this weekend with 19 944 Challenge cars set to take the course for qualifying this afternoon, with a couple of new additions to the field for the first event of the year. With a number of quick drivers, cracking the top 10 will be an achievement for all drivers this round! Here is a run – down of the entrants for this weekend: #1 Cameron Beller – Cameron Beller comes fresh from securing both titles for the 2019 Championship and looks to get a strong start to retain his championship. However he will face his strongest opposition for this in recent years - will his new fatherhood status slow him down? The rest of the field will be hoping so! #2 Tony Westaway – Tony secured a strong second position finish in the points in 2019 and will look to continue on that form in 2020. To do so, he will have a few extra competitors to beat, including his son and his brother! #99 John Kennedy - John secured a third place outright in the Vic State Championship last year despite missing the first round of the series at Sandown in 2019 - but showed great speed from his first time in the car and secured his first race win in the final race at Island Magic despite a DNF in Race 1. Some further upgrades to his car in the off season including a conversion to left hand drive could help - or hinder his forward progression? Time will tell! #27 Toni Andreevski – Toni had a [...]

2019 Season – Final Round Preview!

November 22nd, 2019|0 Comments

The seventh and final round of the 2019 Porsche 944 Challenge is set to be held this weekend at the picturesque Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit as part of the historic Island Magic event this weekend 17 cars are entered for the round, which will see the possibility of the first time there could be a family lock-out of the podium. Returning to the circuit for the first time since the 2018 Island Magic event is 2018 State Series Champion Jamie Westaway. Jamie returns to take the wheel of Keith Marriner's Seat Time Race Solutions backed 944 for the weekend, alongside regular season competitors, Uncle Michael Westaway, and father Tony. Tony returns to the track fresh from his GT3 Cup Car experience at Queensland Raceway thanks to series sponsor Porsche Cars Australia. Here is a run - down of the entrants for this weekend: #1 Cameron Beller – Having clinched the 2019 CAMS Victorian State Race Series Championship at the previous round, club championship leader Cameron Beller will again be the man to beat after his recent perfect round at Phillip Island in September, and only needs to finish one of the races on the weekend to secure his fourth consecutive 944 Challenge Championship. #28 Tony Westaway – Tony sits solidly in second position in the points and actually can't be beaten for the position due to his consistent points run over the year. - his aim will be to take wins this round, or at least be top Westaway... #4 Ken Rowland – Ken is leading the battle for third position in the 944 Challenge pointscore heading into the final round, with a small 3 point gap ahead of his closest pursuer. The battle for third will surely go down to the final race of the season.. #27 Toni Andreevski - returning after missing the last round of the series is Toni Andreevski - [...]

Porsche 944 Challenge driver set for Porsche GT3 Cup experience

November 20th, 2019|0 Comments

Best of luck to 944 Challenge veteran Tony Westaway, who heads to Queensland Raceway today to take part in his prize of driving the Porsche GT3 Cup Car courtesy of our wonderful series sponsor, Porsche Cars Australia. Seen here is Tony receiving his congratulations from Troy Bundy from Porsche Cars Australia upon confirmation of him securing the prize. Tony secured the experience due to his fantastic consistency throughout the year which saw him just miss out on the 2019 944 Challenge State Championship to Cameron Beller. Cameron himself participated in the GT3 Cup Car experience a few months ago and impressed the trainers hugely as he ran some of the best ever times seen in one of the sessions by a non-professional racer on one of these days. Look forward to seeing the results and images and video from the event courtesy of Tony & Jamie Westaway in the days to follow as they prepare to hit the Phillip Island circuit this weekend for the Island Magic event, the final round for the 2019 944 Challenge Series Championship! #porschepyramid

2019 Season – Round 6 Preview!

September 27th, 2019|0 Comments

The fifth and final round of the 2019 Victorian State Racing Championships is on this weekend, which is also the penultimate round of the 2019 944 Challenge Championship. With the prize of the coveted experience aboard a Current spec Porsche 911 GT3 Carrera Cup Car up for grabs to the winning or highest placed eligible driver, there is a lot at stage this weekend! Let’s have a look at the entries for this weekend: #1 Cameron Beller – Cameron moves back to the top of the Vic State Championship pointscore after another perfect round at Sandown - but he sits only 3 points ahead of Tony Westaway going into this final round as a result of scoring no points at Winton in June. He will hope to take back the Vic State Championship title he lost in 2018 - a repeat of his Phillip Island performance in May will help him do that. #28 Tony Westaway – Tony sits just behind Beller on the points for the State Series, with whoever comes out on top between the two this weekend likely to take the State Championship title.  Due to his previous winning of the prize, Beller in ineligible to again secure the GT3 Cup Drive, which Tony can secure for himself in Race 1 this weekend if he has a good finish. #99 John Kennedy - John returns after missing the last round of the series at the Shannon’s Nationals event, which sees him still in fourth place in the Vic State Series, and with a great chance to finish in the top three if he has a weekend as good as the others he has pulled off this season.  #4 Ken Rowland – Ken has had one of his most consistent seasons and sees him sitting in fifth position [...]

2019 Season – Round 5 Preview!

August 29th, 2019|0 Comments

The 944 Challenge drivers are super excited to hit the track as part of a special invitation to join in with Round 5 of the Shannons Nationals series, which will feature the first visit of the TCR series to the Winton circuit. This year will also see this round be a points round of the 944 Challenge series Championship. Here is a preview for this event which will again see the Dennis O’Keefe Cup presented - this time to the winner of the fourth and final (non-points) race of the weekend, which will again be a handicap reverse grid race on Sunday afternoon. For those that can’t make it down, make sure you tune into the Shannons Nationals Livestream on both Saturday & Sunday for all the action! Saturdays qualifying session starts at 9:50, with Race 1 at 12:55 that day and Race 2 at Sundays Reverse grid race is at 10:40am, with the Handicap race finale at 13:35. Below is a list of those competing this weekend: #1 Cameron Beller – Cameron was able to recover from his disaster at Winton in July with a perfect weekend at Sandown. He will need to avoid his Winton curse this weekend to ensure he maintains his newly re-claimed championship points lead. #28 Tony Westaway – Tony had an outstanding weekend last time out at Winton with two race victories securing him the Round win also – the first wins of his career, but lost the series lead after Sandown as a result of Beller's perfect points haul. A repeat of last time at Winton would put Tony back on top again - can he repeat and topple Beller? #4 Ken Rowland - Ken also had a great weekend last time at Winton, with a solid weekend ending on the highest point [...]

2019 Season – Round 4 Preview!

July 17th, 2019|0 Comments

This weekend sees the fourth round of the Victorian State Race Series being held at Sandown Raceway, with the 944 Challenge again competing as one of the staple categories of the series - for the first time with the backing of Porsche Australia on board! Here is a preview of the competitors who will be on track this weekend: #1 Cameron Beller – Cameron had two perfect rounds to start the year, but WInton was even more of a horror for him than 2018 - this year returning zero points for the weekend. While he is able to fall back on the dropped worst round rule for the 944 series keeping him on top in that pointscore, he has slipped to second in the Victorian State Circuit Racing Championship Points with only two rounds remaining. He will hope to replicate his perfect Sandown performance from Round 1 as he looks to claw back the points deficit. #5 Lyndon Watson – Lyndon had a perfect Saturday at Winton, scoring Pole Position and the Race 1 win, but had to settle for second and third positions on Sunday. Nevertheless, he now sits second in the 944 points after factoring in the dropped worst round after his non attendance at Sandown at Round 1. Would this put him at a disadvantage this weekend against his rivals? #28 Tony Westaway – Tony had an outstanding weekend at Winton with two race victories securing him the Round win also - the first wins of his career. With a lead in the Vic State Series Pointscore, Tony will be holding nothing back as he looks to stay at the top of the points ladder at the end of the weekend. #4 Ken Rowland – Ken also had a great weekend at Winton, with a solid weekend ending on the highest point as he finished second in [...]
