The S5000 Australian Drivers’ Championship has announced it will host an evaluation day for prospective drivers at The Bend on September 20.

In a chance to sample Australia’s premier open wheel category machines, a fleet of S5000 racers will be on hand to offer coaching and support for interested drivers to test the cars at speed.

The opportunity presents itself as a monetarily affordable experience by the category organisers, to open the opportunity up to as many potential drivers as is possible.

The event will also double down as the categories 2023 season launch ahead of the upcoming Trans Tasman series, with key sporting, technical, and costing evolutions for the season-coming to be revealed.

The cars presented for sampling will be from Garry Rogers Motorsport, Team BRM and Versa Motorsport, with more to be announced prior to the day.

The ‘S5000 Open’ will be a chance for drivers to get behind the wheel and really experience what S5000 is all about,” said Ben McMellan, the S5000 category manager. 

“The Bend is the ideal location: it’s a fast, flowing circuit that really suits the cars and allows drivers to experience their full range of performance and what they’re all about. 

“The event has been geared to be as accessible, affordable and also as informative as possible to give opportunities to a wide array of drivers who are interested in sampling the cars at speed. 

“Spaces are limited so we would encourage everyone to get in touch as soon as possible to express interest in being part of the day.” 

Any interested parties should contact Ben McMellan at for further information regarding the day.
