The Australian GT Championship is one of the more entertaining race series going. Racers compete head to head in hardware plucked from our supercar dreams. Drivers campaign bruisers like the Ferrari 458 Italia, Porsche 911 GT3-R, Lamborghini Gallardo, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Audi R8 and even the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and Ginetta G55. There are few other places where you can see so many excellent vehicles go fender to fender. This year, the series got started at the infamous Bathurst circuit. If you want a better picture of what the Australian GT Championship has to offer, look no further than the video below.

The first round saw Shane Van Gisbergen and Klark Quinn in their Porsche 911 GT3-R take the checkered flag followed by a four-man team in the No. 88 Ferrari 458 Italia GT4. The series heads to the Adelaide Street circuit for qualifying on February 28, with the main event going down on March 2. In the interim, feel free to check out the clip below for a better idea of what the action is all about.

      It's amazing how much good racing there is, yet in the U.S. NASCAR is favored. I really don't get it. I realize this is just my opinion but as a race fan I want to see cars on circuits, not ovals... tri-ovals or something similar . I want elevation changes, long straights, short straights, on camber turns, off camber turns, fast sweepers and tight hairpins. A bonus is having the cars more closely related to their street going brethren. Back in the day, I don't understand how anyone would rather see a NASCAR race vs Trans-Am. And when I look at NASCAR today it seems like the automotive equivalent to a circus, and not in a good way.

      That is an awesome track and those are wonderful cars, (how can you beat a screamin' 458 in camo, that big, black z06, the Aston or wailing Lambo?)

        I think American LeMans is close and with the recent merger, the GT class may be just as accessible.

        wait... you're joking, right? Grand Am, ALMS don't exist now?

        It's not a track that anyone can drive on. It's a public road that has been closed off for the day. Sydney only has one very small track with a tiny straight. Sydney really needs a better track for motoring enthusiasts.

      Those cars on Laguna Secca would be a great race to watch.
