About S5000

The VHT S5000 Australian Drivers’ Championship is the new generation of Australian open wheel racing.

The cars are the fastest in Australian circuit racing, and the drivers are contesting the Australian Drivers’ Championship and Motorsport Australia Gold Star – the oldest and most prestigious drivers’ title in the nation.

The number ‘5000’ is a reference to the thunderous 5-litre (5200cc) V8 engines which produce 560bhp and speeds of up to 300kph. S5000 is also the modern successor to the legendary Formula 5000 category, which captured the hearts and minds of Australian motor racing fans throughout the 1970s.
