    As teams and drivers prepare for the first round of the POWRi Australian Speedcar Super Series at Brisbane International Speedway on October 20th, the fans have been asking… Who will be on the road this season?

    Passionate SSS Director Ken Jenkins has released a list of contracted drivers that will not disappoint! Multi-time championship-winning driver Mark Brown is confirmed! Yes, the 5 time SSS Champion will return to the track at the opening round along with a number of stringent racers!

    While the number of rounds has been reduced, there is absolutely no doubt the drivers will deliver on all occasions, as they once again provide wheel-to-wheel action!

    “We have drivers who have been on the SSS tour before and other talented racers who have decided to join up for the first time this year,” said Ken earlier “this is going to be another superb season that promises first-class racing across the entire group.”

    Amazingly, there have only been 2 Championship winners since the SSS was reformed in 2005, not an easy feat proven by the over flowing list of blue ribbon victories held by our contracted racers; along with the competitors who have joined us at various rounds from all over the world!

    2005-2006: Michael Pickens (NZ)
    2006-2007: Mark Brown (AUS)
    2007-2008: Mark Brown (AUS)
    2008-2009: Mark Brown (AUS)
    2009-2010: Mark Brown (AUS)
    2010-2011: Michael Pickens (NZ)
    2011-2012: Mark Brown (AUS)
    2012-2013: Who will win?

    Contracted for the 2012-2013 POWRi Speedcar Super Series are:

    JASON BELL - Q82 Breka/Toyota
    Moree’s Jason Bell is a former Litre car racer who has never looked back since joining the Speedcar division. Purchasing a Toyota engine from Stanton Race Engines earlier this year, Jason and his family will have two cars on track as they play host to the current POWRi champion, American Andrew Felker (BIS and Charlton only).

    MARK BROWN - N9 Spike/Esslinger
    With five championships under his belt and many other blue ribbon events, Ex-Vic and current NSW’s Mark Brown will defend his championship racing for Brendon Fox of TFR! The most winning team last season with 13 podiums including 7 feature wins, Team Fox Racing are the ones to beat in 2012-2013!

    ANTHONY CHAFFEY - Q4 Mac/Ed Pink
    Racing for the Holland family out of Queensland, Anthony Chaffey joins the travelling onslaught this season with the 2010 Victorian State Championship on his racing resume!

    TROY JENKINS - N78 Stealth/Synergy V8
    One of two drivers who have competed at every round of the SSS, Troy Jenkins is a veteran of this sport with his name in the record books from State Championships to Australian Grand Prix's.

    BRENDAN PALMER - Q29 Breka/Esslinger
    The current Polar Ice Midget Series champion joins the ranks racing for Jack Berry Racing. Collecting most of the QSRA accolades last season, Brendan also drove to victory and was crowned the 2012 Victorian State Champion!

    SIMON ROBERTS - N22 Spike/Mopar
    Son of Super Sedan racer Bernie Roberts, Simon joined the Speedcar division after a karting initative ran by the Speedcar Association of NSW! A real find for the division with ample talent up his sleeve! Racing for only a short time, Simon has already captured his maiden feature win!

    NATHAN SMEE - N7 Spike/Esslinger
    Racing for brother-in-law Mark Cooper, this former Australian Speedcar Champion and 50 lapper King starts his season after a successful campaign at International meetings in both New Zealand and America.

    GAVIN WESBLE - N67 Aggressor/Mopar
    Out of the cockpit for approx 3 seasons due to work commitments, Gavin was keen to get back on the loud pedal to develop his craft! Deciding to join the series was an easy option! Race at different tracks across the country with many high calibre drivers! Speaking from his home in Tamworth, "The POWRi SSS in my opinion is the number one series in Australia so thought I'd give it a try!"

    With plans underway to develop this series and division further, get on board and support the racing both on and off the track!

    20 October 2012 - Brisbane International Speedway, QLD
    27 October 2012 - Charlton Raceway, QLD
    19 January 2012 - Avalon Raceway, VIC
    30 March 2012 - Sydney Speedway, NSW

    How refreshing to see a professional release naming all drivers in the series, instead of the drip feed stuff we seem to get from others. Look forward to catching the Sydney race shame I have to wait so long.
